I have a new blog! And a contest!

Over the last little while you may have noticed I’ve become a bit iPad cent­ric. To be spe­cif­ic, I’ve been explor­ing using the iPad as a port­able, digit­al dark­room. Yes, the iPad doesn’t have a cam­era (for now, maybe in ver­sion 2?), but that shouldn’t stop us from using it to manip­u­late images impor­ted into […]
