New Aperture Expert Article | Good News & Bad News

20140608_nicknieto_mg_4066_2

I have ¬†good news and bad news… First with the good news.

I like to consider myself pretty advanced when it comes to technology and managing my digital life. My favorite tool to manage and edit my photos is a program which was made by Apple called Aperture. A few months ago I signed up to be a contributor over at ApertureExpert.com and write some articles on how I use Aperture. My latest article¬†was just published and it’s about using the Fonts window to customize text in the Aperture Bookmaking tool. Please check it out, I would greatly appreciate it!

Now, the bad news…

Gear Alert! NEX-6

Sony NEX-6

I just got the Sony NEX-6 mirroless camera. Ever since my trip to Victoria I’ve been looking at the lighter mirrorless cameras as a better travel camera. I wanted a camera that I could carry around, shoot with a good amount of control, but not leave my hand and back aching at the end of the day. After a bit of research I decided to go with the NEX-6, my second choice the OM-D from Olympus was a close contender but just out of my price range, and the placement of the Electronic viewfinder on top gave it a slightly larger profile.
