Photo Charlie Sorrel iOS 5 is here, and with it iCloud. ICloud is the biggest step yet towards cutting the cord with desktop computers, and it arguably does away with the old-fashioned idea of files and folders. One of the best parts of iCloud is Photo Stream which, in combination with the new Photos app, lets you forget about the computer completely. Almost. Camera First, and most noticeable, are the new Camera and Photos apps. You can also call up a grid overlay, lock the exposure and autofocus before recomposing (iPhone 4 and 4S-only), and pinch to zoom as you are shooting. Once you are viewing you photos, you can now edit them. The edits seem to be non-destructive: You save your image, but if you choose to edit it again later you can still revert to the original. From here you can also share images (email, Twitter, Messages), assign to a contact, print, copy or choose to use as wallpaper. Photos Photo Stream

Photography's Longest Exposure - household name : : : blog [click +] Six months. That's right. This dream-like picture shows each phase of the sun over Bristol's Clifton Suspension Bridge taken during half a year. The image was captured on a pin-hole camera made from an empty soda can with a 0.25mm aperture and a single sheet of photographic paper. Photographer Justin Quinnell strapped the camera to a telephone pole overlooking the Gorge, where it was left between December 19, 2007 and June 21, 2008––the Winter and Summer solstices. 'Solargraph' shows six months of the sun's luminescent trails and its subtle change of course caused by the earth's movement in orbit. Quinnell, a renowned pin-hole camera artist, says the photograph took on a personal resonance after his father passed away on April 13, halfway through the exposure.
