Yahoo have recently released a long awaited, and long overdue upgrade to Flickr, and it's stunning. With the emphasis (as it should be) on photos the site now rivals 500px in its clean design and ease of navigation.
I haven't got an iPhone and so, to date, there is no Vine app for Android (sort it out Twitter!). Luckily though, I do have an iPad and, although not as easily done, I have recorded a 7 second HDR tutorial. You need to watch carefully and bear in mind that I only had 7 seconds for this! :)

Spring is here, lot's of things are changing in the world and in the digital plane too. FPR has been taken back to basics to improve performance and make everything a bit simpler for it's lovely readers! :)
I've recently been reworking a few shots I took in London last year. I have amended the processing slightly to reduce noise and improve clarity. All images processed through Photomatix and Photoshop. Full gallery on Google+
Recently I took a single RAW photo of a local church. From this single image I created an HDR image using 3 different exposure settings.

Whilst browsing YouTube recently I came across a short film which grabbed my attention. The film, released by Panasonic, demonstrates the amazing capabilities of the new Lumix GH3, the successor to the popular DMC-GH2. The short film features the well known actor Toby Kebbell (Black Mirror, Rock N Rolla). Apart from one instance of inaudible speech, the film is shot without dialogue. The feature focuses closely on the struggle, and escape, of the unnamed imprisoned 'hero'.
