Love it or hate it… or somewhere in between, there is no denying that the advances in AI are pretty crazy. Here’s the tech launching for ChatGPT next month. Pretty clever!
Daily Photo – Life Admin
Settling back into the studio after essentially being on the road since May is great but also filled with realisation of how stuff somehow needs to be attended to… Windows updates. Cleaning (somehow!), life admin… but then the fun creative stuff can begin again. Yay! Big plans are a cookin’.
If you missed the newsletter over the weekend (or the post yesterday about it) then you may have missed the recent Luminar news. So here it is… In a past newsletter, I talked a little bit about how my main workflow has moved away from Aurora HDR to Luminar Neo, now that it has HDR functionality available. That has continued to be the case and every image you saw in recent blog posts was processed on Luminar Neo. It’s a great bit of software and it has been interesting to watch it evolve. Most recently Skylum (finally!) added panorama functionality which removes yet another reason to stick with alternate software. You should definitely check it out. 🙂
Daily Photo – Walking the Fairy Pools
Where Allt Coir’ a’ Mhadaidh turns into the River Brittle you find the Fairy Pools on the Isle of Skye. It’s a series of hugely varied waterfalls and their associated pools which carve their way down through Glen Brittle towards the sea. The water is an amazing blue/green color, most of the way, picking up darker tones in the more deep and shadowed areas. Well worth a visit, even when conditions are not ideal as it makes for a “refreshing” hike… or swim if you’re so inclined.
Daily Photo – Unexploring Auckland
Next up on the 3 day trek home… Auckland. Which reminds me that I really need to go there and spend a good week or so exploring. I’m there often but 99% of the time it’s basically a hub to use for exit/entry to NZ. So this is about the only image I’ve processed from there. That needs to change!
