I’m supposed to write about the weather tonight. Over the last 4 days it has been cold. Very cold, and it snowed. OK, not much and it was all gone within 24 hours, but it was cold. Now I may come back to the weather, but in the meantime there’s something else I want to write about.
I have to admit that I didn’t think my plan would fall to bits almost with minutes of making my commitment to iphone projects last night. I definitely do want to do it, but unfortunately, not with that book.
The first and most important thing was that within the first two pages, it had stated that the book was aimed at users of the iphone 4 & 5. I use an iPhone 12. Well, I suppose a camera is a camera and it is the technique that is important so that it is 7 generations obsolete doesn’t really matter. Well it didn’t except that whilst the book did have just a little bit about technique, it didn’t have projects. It’s those that I really wanted.
The book was obviously one that was given away free with a magazine, because the other thing it was trying to convince you to do was to buy apps – that are probably discontinued now and also bits of equipment, like lens attachments – which are also probably no longer available. All in all, not a great success. I’m not giving up.
The mission now is to find a book that meets the needs. I don’t really care about equipment, except that the book must be no more than one or two generations behind. It must have technique and projects. So I am now on a mission to find the book. The commitment I made last night is on hold, but most definitely not forgotten. A little bit of research is needed.
The weather? Well, it’s going to be cold for at least the two or three days. An opportunity for some cold weather pictures. Hopefully.
Oh, and I know that for this blog, tomorrow is a special day.
