Making your iPad a Second Monitor.

A while back I posted an article on tethering your camera to an iPad wirelessly from Lee Morris of Fstoppers fame. Well here is another that might interest you from the same guys. It’s how you can wirelessly tether your iPad and use it as a second monitor in conjunction with a laptop or desktop for editing and other things.



And HERE is the link to buy the App.

Enjoy it and I hope it helps. If you find it useful perhaps you might leave a comment and tell us how you got on.

Peter Gordon IPPA Photographer of the Year 2013

This is a recent interview with Peter Gordon, the 2013 IPPA Photographer of the Year. Peter was kind enough to give up some time to go on camera to be asked a few questions about his photography career to date and what future projects are ahead.

I hope you enjoy it and please forgive some of the (natural) lighting issues we had to contend with. Just click on the video below…

An Interview with Vincent O’Byrne

I had the idea to interview some of our members, thus saving my fingers from poor typing skills. Vincent O’Byrne is the first victim of my efforts! I thought it fitting as he is the IPPA President Elect and due to take up his tenure in October. The video has a number of Vinnie’s excellent images, followed by the interview.


IPPA INTERVIEW Vinnie O’Byrne from Striking Images on Vimeo.

The video is my first attempt at this and I would very much welcome your input. If you would like to tweet me (Twitter: @strikingimages) with possible candidates or other questions you would like put to  potential ‘video victims’ – I would be grateful. If they are willing, I have a list of other members I intend to put in front of the camera. These include not just our member photographers but also trade suppliers too and I will probably ask the same questions to get some uniformity to the interviews (and ease the editing process). That said, I really would welcome your input as I would like to make this very much a collaborative effort.

Hope you enjoy it and many thanks to Vinnie for his patience and participation in this small project.

Let me know if you like it in the comments below, on Twitter, Facebook or give me a call.
