LG G4 Hits A High Note At This Year’s V Festival by Sean Hayes

September 16th, 2015 by LG UK
 
I was delighted to receive an invitation from Virgin Media to be the Instagram photographer for their ‘live feed’ from the V Festival music feast held in Chelmsford this summer. I was equally delighted to be given the opportunity by co-sponsors LG to shoot the festivities over a two-day period with LG’s new G4 smartphone. Music festivals present many challenges for photographers where the light can change dramatically in the blink of an eye. From photographing music fans in bright sunlight one minute to overcast conditions the next, to shooting the headliner acts on the main stage bathed in brilliant sunshine;...

Well, if we had a pound for every time someone asked us that, it probably would have paid for our tent! The LG G4 takes selfie making to a whole different...

You’re in for a treat with the LG G4′s camera

July 20th, 2015 by LG UK
 
The 16-mepagixel camera from LG’s G4 is at the cutting edge of technology The camera on the LG G4 brings you the best of both worlds: fun innovations and intense, accurate photos.   The lens has an f1.8 aperture, which sucks in 80% more light that the lenses on conventional smartphones, while the sensor is the biggest ever seen on an LG phone. How big is it? Really big.   The Optical Image Stabalisation is even better than the one found on the G3, and allows you to take perfect shots even if you’re running, dancing or rollercoastering. It uses a three-axis stabalisationm, which is...

Worldwide Photowalk

June 24th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
I recently became aware of the Worldwide Photowalk, it's a brilliant idea - Photowalks are "a social photography event where photographers get together, usually in a downtown area or trendy section of town, to walk around, shoot photos, and generally have fun with other photographers" they are free to take part in and open to anyone - although, for practicality all walks are limited to a maximum of 50 people per walk. Q. How many cities and people participated in last year’s Photo Walk? A. We had: 1. 8.324 photographers register for local walks 2. 47 Countries had participating cities 3. 44 States in the...

Andy Goldsworthy

June 16th, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 
I've been a big fan of Andy Goldsworthy's sculpture for many years, and have recently rediscovered his brilliance. Goldsworthy is a British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates outdoor sculpture that manifests a sympathetic contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they disappear, Goldsworthy records his work in photographs. Goldsworthy deliberately explores the tension of working in the area where he finds his materials, and is undeterred by changes by changes in the weather which may...
