My entire Convention Photography book on this site!

Convention Photography (Click here to read the book.) Description: Learn all about the exciting subculture that is convention photography! Straight from the experiences of a long time convention attendee, He has spent years … Continue reading

The Entire Creator Sky Book On This Site

Any interest in reading the science fiction book I wrote in 2012? I just put the entire text on my website. I’d rather have it be read than sit on Amazon with little attention: http://photographybanzai.com/creator-sky-book/ You can hate me for the cliffhanger ending later.

I completed my second large book titled “The Handbook of Photographing Arizona” that should be a bit more generally appealing than my first.

Android: DSLRNinja Rate My Picture Game!

I was planning this application since I made the histogram one. Actually, my initial idea was to make a “histogram game” where the user would find out if their photo histogram was considered “good” by the software. I had some of the app written by copying existing code and modifying it, but I kept putting the project off. In retrospect I probably felt the app wasn’t exciting enough to bother … Continue reading

New Android app called the “No Nonsense Picture Viewer”

I made another android application. This time I took a suggestion from a thread on Flickr I started as a basic idea for the application. I used bits and pieces from some of my existing apps, but it was for the most part new code to deal with the image manipulation. I can’t stand those apps that unnecessarily require extreme permissions for their functionality. Sorry there isn’t any reason your … Continue reading

The first Arizona item is a 2012 calendar.

If you frequent my website, you will know that I visited Arizona in October to see my aunt and uncle.

Convention photography book in print on Amazon.com!

I took the time to revise my book yet again and am now able to offer it on Amazon.com. It’s using the self publishing service called “Create Space” instead of “Blurb.” Create Space is owned by Amazon, so it just made sense to try them out and I’m glad to say that I’m happy with the result. I was able to offer a substantially larger book (from 110 to 160 … Continue reading

Android App: Image Histogram Generator

It’s time for another new Android app! My first photography app was for astrophotography. This time I wrote one that generates histograms of pretty much any sized jpeg, gif. png, or bmp you can throw at it. Here is a link to the app on the Android Market. Check out the video I made (Pentax K-5 at 720p 30fps, edited in Kdenlive): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCrZBGLw7I8 As with a lot of my apps, … Continue reading
