I’ve been thinking about this idea for a long time, and finally I took my time and set up a blog, a small portfolio and a Twitter account for my new web design business – The portfolio web site is coming soon, but meanwhile you can check out

Palm Pre Reviews Round UpAlexander CommeriPhone vs Pre (photo by Engadget)

Thu, 08 Jan 2009 23:05:14 +0000

  I think this is the day that we will all remember Palm in a way we remember Apple when they introduced the iPhone back in 2007. Today Palm introduced their new smartphone that has indeed the potential of being and iPhone-killer. It is undeniable that the number of innovations that Pre has brought with […](image)

A few new gadgetsAlexander Commer

Fri, 04 Jul 2008 07:42:16 +0000

As a photographer and a tech geek, any new purchased pricy gadget feels like a party. A little update on a few things that I got lucky to own recently. Lens: Canon 16-35mm f/2.8 Super-wide angle lens – something I needed for quite a while. Now I can boast a wide range of lenses, that […](image)

Umbrella lighting shooting sessionAlexander Commer

Thu, 05 Jun 2008 05:10:09 +0000

Everything started back in February when I got an extra canon Speedlight flash. Wireless off-camera lighting seemed fun and my portfolio was glaring with some new great additions. A few months later I got a chance to play with three 580EX flashes and a Gary Fong diffuser. Even without reading about or studying off-camera lighting, […](image)

iPhone is no desktop, it’s a phone!Alexander Commer

Thu, 27 Mar 2008 18:54:18 +0000

“iPhone is no desktop”, says John C. Dvorak. And I say that I don’t even see Apple trying make iPhone as a desktop replacement. If they were, I think Adobe would be pushed on hard to make a Flash available at launch, Mail application would have all sorts of filtering options, Photos application would allow […](image)

iPhone development – Where to start?Alexander Commer

Mon, 10 Mar 2008 20:15:18 +0000

After struggling for quite a while to find a good documentation on iPhone SDK I decided to come up with a set of tutorials that I’m gonna do while learning the iPhone OS API myself. Official documentation found on Apple’s web site still suffers from being not clear enough and it’s not very obvious where […](image)

A bright wedding (day)?Alexander Commer“Yeah, it’s my day!”Awww, so cute!

Mon, 25 Feb 2008 21:17:09 +0000

Yes, I do love bright weddings, but when it comes to the bright and sunny wedding DAY, the level of excitement of any photographer substantially goes down :). Especially when your built-in camera light meter shows overexposure at 1/4000 shutter speed even when you’re standing and pointing to the shade area. Very exciting, I know, […](image)

Cold February shooting sessionAlexander Commer

Thu, 21 Feb 2008 03:47:27 +0000

First of all the word ‘cold’ in the title of this post carries an important message for all of you, my fellow photographers. Never go shooting with a model on cold days! A few days later I found out that my gorgeous friend Victoria almost caught a cold, and it was because of me who […](image)

Some wedding shots from Fall 2007Alexander Commer111101620930100121077097908840800067303150379019910061062

Tue, 08 Jan 2008 07:27:13 +0000

I put together some edited images from various weddings I shot this fall. The images are hosted on Flickr and most of the still have EXIF data. I was using primarily the Canon 5D. Equipment also included Canon 20D, 24-70mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, 70-200mm f/2.8, 70-200mm f/4. All lenses are Canon lenses, because I’m not […](image)

Got my own 5D!Alexander Commer

Tue, 18 Dec 2007 22:10:45 +0000

Finally dreams became reality :). Now I got my own 5D, my first full-frame sensor digital camera. The lens that I used on 20D, 24-70 f/2.8, became a much better wide-angle lens thanks to the so much bigger sensor of the Canon 5D. Months before, when I was working with my friend’s Canon 5D, I’ve […](image)
