Rob Walker at Yahoo Tech interviewed me last week for an article that went live today about iPad photography: iPad Photography: Should We Take It Seriously?
The article mostly focuses on using the iPad as a camera, dispelling the stigma of shooting with an iPad and recognizing that, like it or not, a lot of people use their iPads as cameras. Walker points to Flickr (also owned by Yahoo) and its page for the iPad Air—last year’s model—to discover that 6,254 photos captured with the Air’s camera were uploaded the day before the article appeared; that number is 8,667 for yesterday, October 28.
I also have to admit it’s still fun to be introduced as the person “who literally wrote the book on the subject.”
Last week I had the pleasure to talk to Chuck Joiner for his MacVoices show about The iPad for Photographers. In this discussion, we talk about why the iPad makes a good photographer’s companion and plenty of tools and apps that can help in the field and in the studio. Audio and video versions of the interview are available: MacVoices #13164: Jeff Carlson Talks About The iPad for Photographers.
I want to extend my thanks to Shawn King, who had me as a guest on his Your Mac Life show this week. We talked about the book, and what’s new in the second edition, wireless photo transfer devices, and more. We even gave a free copy of the book to a listener in Sweden! My section starts at 43:00, but you probably want to start from the beginning to listen to Jim Dalrymple. Go watch or listen for yourself:
