A flipboard for YLoveBigCats

(Thursday, April 30th, 2015)

A few changes for YLovePhoto in 2015. Starting with the decision of adding a special complement to the web site for those who know and love FlipBoard, a powerful way to flip pages on Internet-based magazines. It’s even easier if you chose to use your smart phone: your magazine pages are flipped from the tip of your finger, to move from one post to the next, one image to the next.

View my Flipboard Magazine.

I’ll store there sets of links that I find on the web. I’ll try to make them appear in groups linked by an obvious common subject in the coming months (If I’m good enough at it and if you are interested enough).

I’ll start with a series (videos and posts) about depth of field, a topic central for any photographer.

Tell me what you think of it. I can’t wait to know.

You think your job sucks?

Well! Try applying for this one: “Bath assistant for lions”.

In those recession times, I guess I’ll stick to engineering…

Big Cat Art

(Thursday, December 18th, 2008)

Christina Langman is a painter that does a lot of things around big cats and could well be described as a feline artist. You would think that this leads me to invite you to visit her gallery. Yes, I do. But not only that.

You should check her blog: Big Cat Art Blog. She describes her work and the way a painting comes to life brush after brush.

You should also visit other parts of her web life with such interesting things as her Colored Pencil Tutorial where you will find the detailled step-by-step instructions to go from blank paper to something like the following picture (and it’s much more complex than you’d think at first):

Malaria vaccine coming?

(Saturday, December 13th, 2008)

The GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) pharmaceutical laboratory may have found the right one with a vaccine that is set to immediately enter phase III clinical trials. It has already succesfully tested on American volunteers and on 340 Tanzanian children. It seems to reduce the infection risk by 65% – without unpleasant interaction.

All people traveling to tropical countries will certainly be glad to hear this, for themselves and for the people of these countries paying a dire price to the malaria infection.
