20121222-232132.jpg Ok so I am a tech nerd and I am always trying for better ways to streamline and get better photos. I thought it was the camera but then the software and then my ability to take photos and then I thought it had to do with extraneous equipment like flashes and light meters and such. It’s too much. I don’t know which camera is best anymore. I started ages ago with a Pentax optio and then got a canon point and shoot and then upgraded to a Canon Powershot g10. The powershot was terrible because I didn’t know what aperture or shutter speed meant. Later I got a canon rebel dsl camera and then another one that did video. I then switched systems to a Panasonic micro 4/3rds. I like the 4/3rds for their size but I feel it’s not as bright as my other cameras. Now I mainly shoot on my iPad mini and my iPhone. I don’t know which is better but I do like that I can get my photos out quickly.

I have played with Instagram most and I love it. Amaro (the first setting) seems to work with all photos. However I just got a SD card reader for my iPad mini so I thought I should import some of my photos from my Panasonic micro 4/3rds camera and do some editing. Here are the programs I downloaded:

Adobe Photoshop express
PE Foto Lr HD
Photo editor
Be Funky
Photo Toaster Jr.
Picshot light
Aviary
Camera!

Adobe photoshop and PicShot light suck. Interfaces are non-intuitive and you can’t grasp the idea of what the image will look like afterwards. The auto enhance on adobe is better than some of the others though. Photo editor and Aviary seem to have the same interfaces, filters, and more. Both are all right but nothing special.

Photo Toaster has some good options and filters. You could do quite a bit without buying the upgrades. Be funky is fun but not so useful and the auto enhance made things look bad.

I really like PE Foto Lr HD. Too bad the lame is lame. It lets you do stuff like type text and color in or make parts of your photo black and white.

Of the, all I liked camera! most. It is intuitive and fun to use. Photos come out colorful and smart. It was a good weekend.

Yesterday I got to explore Gangnam with a coupe of friends and here are some pictures I snapped off during the day. I think the general consensus overall was that Gangnam isn’t as spectacular as the video but the people are generally much better looking. Gangnam is a fun place to explore and eat and I would recommend it to all that are looking for a fun night out in Seoul.

What can you see in one day in Seoul?

A whole lot.

Even though it is dang cold out.

I mean really cold out. So cold that I just want to stay home and lay on the hot spot on my ondol (Korean Floor Heating), but it hasn’t stopped tourists from coming to Korea. Apparently British Airways just started direct flights to Korea and to launch them they are offering super cheap flights.

What this means for me and the tour company I work for is that we have had a lot of tours these days despite the cold.

So people have been asking what they can see in one day in December? Really a lot. Seoul has great sites and shopping, restaurants and museums. There is a lot you can do in Seoul while staying relatively warm. Here are some of my recommendations

The Samsung D-light building
The Kimchi Museum
Gyeongbukgung Palace
The Folk Museum
The War Memorial Museum
Noryangjin Fish Market
Kwangjang Market
Gangnam Station
Gung B-boy Show
Drawing Action
COEX
Bonguensa Palace

And of course you should check out our Night Dining Tours, Korean Cooking Classes and my Ultimate Food Tour at O’ngo Food Communications
