RETINAS

Photo by Olivier Bekaert

Not sure if any of you noticed, but I always noticed that on mobile screens our site looked “fuzzy”. Images weren’t as sharp as they should be. I knew it was because this site, which runs on WordPress, was trying to optimize images for all screens and just pure failing and that there was nothing I could do about it. But upon further research I found out that this theme we are using is also optimizing images AND the uploader we are using is optimizing images. Everybody trying to optimize images when they don’t even need optimizing since I do that when prepping in Photoshop. Anyways, I unplugged a bunch of plugins and it seems like everything is as sharp as it is supposed to be on all screens starting today. Don’t look at the old stuff. Just look at today and going forward and we should all be super sharp. Ok thanks.

REGULAR

Photo by Bouwe Brouwer

I just read that 80% of your website traffic is brand new, like they never seen your site before. Maybe that is referring to websites with no new regular content and no audience because 80% seems very high? But I do agree that a good chunk of you who are reading this have never heard of us before. I know because questions show up in my emails. So today, I’ll answer the main question right now. All the photos on this blog and on our Instagram feed are photos from past issues of Hamburger Eyes, so if you would like to submit then you should submit to our magazine. It is very easy. Just email us a link.

BUBBLES

I was thinking of possible Youtube series’s for the Hamburger Eyes channel and came across all the new Nikon and Canon mirrorless videos while researching camera and photography channels. Ok no one even owns these cameras yet because they just announced them and they aren’t shipping these cameras for months. But, all these people are making videos of their reactions to this particular news. Basically they are reviewing cameras that aren’t even out yet. I guess it is not that crazy but wow you can do anything on Youtube.

Seems like the big photo channels are camera reviews and how-to’s, or at least that’s what the algorithm is feeding me in my research. I think we could make something different and cool. What do you think?
