Because I’m currently obsessed with ToonCamera on the iPad, here’s a version of yesterday’s photo, zoomed in closer and rendered in ToonCamera.
Is it just me, or does that bird kinda look like the bird on the Twitter logo?
Happy Monday !
So, here’s what I learned this past weekend: Photographing hummingbirds requires a lot of patience !
I shot this early Saturday evening. I was using the Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8 on the Canon 7D. I was at full zoom at f/7.1, 1/320th, ISO 1000. I was about 15 feet from this hummingbird feeder. I probably took about 200 shots. I got a fair number of shots with the birds at the feeder, or perched on the hook above the feeder. But, this is the only shot I managed to get of a hummingbird in flight.

Happy Memorial Day 2013 !
To commemorate the day, here’s a photo of the cemetery at Omaha Beach in Normandy, France. I shot this in May 2009 with my Canon G6.

Fallingwater, rendered in line and ink using Toon Camera on the iPad. I shot this 2 weeks ago while my friend Josh was visiting.
More experimentation with Toon Camera on the iPad. A previous version of this photo can be found here.
One thing I haven’t been able to figure out is how the app decides what resolution to use when saving the file. Some are rendered at 1.5 MP and others are rendered at ~ 3 MP.

Experimental bonus post: This is Talesin West reprocessed using Toon Camera and posted via the Tumblr app on iPad.
The Stacks in Homestead, rendered using Toon Camera on the iPad. It does some funky things with brick patterns.
So, this weekend I downloaded an app for iPhone and iPad called Toon Camera (as in carTOON). It’s an app that renders photos in line & ink and painting styles, similar to Topaz Simplify. I’m still just learning the controls and capabilities of the app, but I kinda like some of what I’ve seen, so I thought I would post a few. Here’s version of the crocus photo (I posted previous versions here and here), rendered in Toon Camera.

I was recently reminded of this photo that I took in 2007 at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. I decided to try processing it in Topaz Simplify. This is the result.
