Yes! In case you wondered, I’m still alive and I’m back after more than a year without updates of this website.
Circumstances of life made it almost impossible for me to take care of my website during the last year.

I want to apologize for this silence to all readers but especially to the users of my WP Supersized plugin who have sent many questions left unanswered.
If you are one of them, note that I am busy preparing an update of the plugin to solve some issues that appeared since the last update. A little bit more patience and the new update will be ready for download.
Also, if your questions about WP Supersized are still unanswered and you still need help, please send me these questions again (first check the new version when available) as I will most probably not have the time to go over all the questions/comments that I had received during the last year.

Among others things, I am currently working on a brand new and improved version of my website. Still in development but I hope to have it ready during the summer.

In the meantime, I invite you to visit my next exhibition, entitled “When nature plays architect“, during the Randonnée d’Artistes de Rixensart !

I often get asked how to use WP Supersized to build a full screen gallery of images within a WordPress theme.
Here is a simple way to do it.
If you have other ideas on how to do this, share it with other users by using the comments.

First of all, check out the demo.

OK! How is this done ?

Happy new year to all!
Here is the image I had chosen for my paper New year cards. I have taken it during my trip to British Columbia in September 2011. There was already snow during my stay there. I called this image “Symetries” for obvious reasons (I think) but it also had another appeal to me: move your mouse over the image to see what I had seen in it ;-)

This last Sunday, the morning looked grey and rather cool: perfect weather for a bit of mountain biking. I thought: “no need for a camera, the light is not good”. And so I went away, with nothing but my bike for a ride in the neighbourhood. After only a few km, I spotted a mailbox drowned in a group of flowers against the wall of an old farm in Rixensart. I hesitated a bit: continue with my bike ride or go back to get my camera. The light looked like it would soon change with clouds becoming thinner, so I rushed back home, hoping that the wind would not increase and that the cloud cover would not break too fast, to keep the even light that was perfect for the image that I had in mind. Back home, I picked up my equipment, jumped in my car (to get there quicker ;-)) and went back again to the old farm. Here is the result!

A few weeks ago, I bought a new tripod (Manfrotto 055 CXPro4) and ballhead (MH054) and I was looking for an opportunity to test my new equipment. A few days later, on a (very) early Saturday morning, I could not sleep anymore and the weather was looking perfect for some mist low on the ground: it had rained for a few days, the night was relatively cold and the day was supposed to be sunny. So I jumped out of bed, picked up my equipment and drove a few km to be around the village of Perk just in time for sunrise. You may have already seen an earlier image taken at the same spot but I think that this one is better. The mist and colours were just right. This time, I also had enough time to build a panoramic image by taking a series of 7 vertical pictures that I later combined to give an image that would be 150 x 50 cm if printed at 300 dpi!
And, by the way, the tripod and ballhead are a pleasure to use once I got used to the ballhead.
