A full-frame camera like the Nikon D600 requires good glass to really shine. The incredibly cheap Samyang AE 14mm ED AS IF UMC lens received great praise in reviews and after getting one myself I totally agree with them. It instantly became one of my favorite lenses.
This is the place where the Flying Dog Fish presents his photos, manipulated photos, videos, games for Android and PC and any other creations of his that he deems worthy of your attention. A new photo is presented here every day. Click on it to visit it in the gallery, where it is described and available in higher resolution.
FDF's Minefield Adventure for Android has been in development for a long time now. It's about as feature-complete as it's gonna get now, it only requires some final touches, but those often prove to be the hardest. Of course, the game is getting it's own page around here real soon too, with everyhing from instructions to gameplay videos to tips&tricks. Stay tuned for details. You can even contact me through the contact form if you want to beta-test it.
The gallery part of the exhibit is finally back in business. It's got it's own subdomain at gallery.flyingdogfish.com.
The gallery is still being fixed after its transition to gallery3, but I think it's already presentable. The things still needed to be fixed:
The exhibit is back online now. The design still requires some attention though. The gallery shall return in a day or two too, but it unfortunately won't be embedded with the rest of the site as the otherwise awesome new version of Gallery (3) can't be embedded yet. The author apologizes for the inconvenience.
A friend of mine just released his awesome snake game on Google Play (ex Android Market). It's got huge playing fields and nice retro graphics. The snake moves around with incredible smoothness. This is a must for all snake lovers out there and something great to pass your time by when you're waiting for something and only got your phone with you. And I should know it's great, I've been the lead Quality Assurance and a Consultant on this one, at least according to the credits.
In the last 10 days I tried adding a new photo from my extensive collection to the photo exhibit every single day. And, surprise, surprise, I did accomplish that on all of those 10 days.
And from now on, at least one new photo shall be added to the exhibit every single day, except, of course, on the days when I won't be able to get to a computer, but I might compensate for that.
I hope you'll enjoy seeing them all.
A new version of Mine Explorer is in the making. This time the platform is Android so the entire game is being redesigned from scratch, including the graphics. I might not end up calling it Mine Explorer.
Stay tuned for more info as the development continues.
So our insignificant little planet completed another turn around its insignificant little G-type star in an insignificant spiral arm of an insignificant little galaxy in an insignificant little cluster of galaxies in a humongous universe? Why should we care? Oh, you can get chocolate from people for free just because of it? In that case, I wish you a very chocolatey new year.
Flying Dog Fish gets back to vector format by getting it's lines carefully traced inside Inkscape. This allows FDF to grow and shrink seamlessly, which makes the tiny page icon shown in browsers look much better.
After months of waiting for the right weather to be taken the photos from a Hot Air Balloon ride over Ljubljansko Barje were a bit scared to get posted, but they finally decided to join my little photo exhibit.
Sometimes reality just isn't enough. That's when people turn to digital image manipulation (usually called photoshopping after the most known image manipulation program). You might have noticed "Photoshops" in the site menu. Believe it or not, that's where some of my photoshopping attempts shall end up from now on.
I finally got to adding the photos from my last visit to Rakov Škocjan into a new album. It only took me a month :/
I also added a new menu item for the latest images, which was previously easy to miss as it was only visible inside the main album.
Some weeks ago I got myself a Lensbaby Composer. That's a special lens that gives you great control over your focus area. Let's not waste words on it, just look at the video explanation on the official site of how this thing actually works.
Anyway, I just love playing with this thing. I've still got to a lot to learn on how to use it properly, but the first image worthy of showing has been added to the gallery.
I really, really hate daylight savings time. I mean, what's the bloody point of making everyone wake up an hour early?
