Zooming seems to have found it's second niche after babies with Birding pictures. We are lucky to have a friendly photographer sharing his beautiful photos with us, direct from the French site of Nature Photography. His name is Philippe Pennel and he takes pictures of Sparrows who come to play in his backyard.
Zoom on each image down to discover the beauty of these "common" but beautiful birds.
Here I am on the "Billaut Show", France premiere techno blog, explaining what Zoomomail is all about. We have made no other media appearance but this one is sort of a "must" in France. We will come out once we are satisfied that the authoring application is stable and the feature set satisfactory. We are making new release everyweek with bugfixes. Thank you all for your constructive feedback !
A good friend of mine, excellent amateur photographer, asked me how Zooming would work for Macro Photography. I thought it was an excellent question. So I went back into my files and digged some Orchids shots I had done last April at the New York Botanical Garden. Done in 10M pixels with no tripod and no extra lighting.
What you see is the beautiful texture of the flowers, and extreme details that you would not have noticed except with a magnifier.
But you can also create nice layouts with your flowers or insect shots to better express their beauty. This is probably fantastic for bird shots. If anyone has sample pictures make a Zoomomail and send it to me (zoomoman (at) zoomorama (dot) com).
The weather was awful on Friday night in New York, but gorgeous over the weekend. My friend Cathline and I went around Queens and the Bronx on the bikes, it was great fun. The Bronx has totally changed since the famous early 80's movie Koyaanisqatsi where you see desolation and filth. Today the Bronx is suburbia, with beautiful views of the Long Island Sound. They call it Bronxtucket...
Along our rides I took a few pictures of the city. So enjoy the Bicycling, and enjoy the views of New York. It is an amazing city. Back in Paris I'll do a Zoomomail about Biking in Paris - It fantastic too.
