A Grab Bag
Hey look, it’s an “E”! Speaking of E…
This week I launched the fourth in the my eBook series. Chasing The Look is now available. Still for $5. More information HERE.
Canon Blogger did an interview with me last week and it’s now live. The audio is a bit low, so you might need to crank it, but it was a conversation that took different directions than many of the interviews I’ve done. You can listen to it HERE. (If you have issues, download it directly from THIS LINK.)
Joe McNally, a man I admire for both his words and his images, posted an article on his blog on Monday (Nov. 09) that was particularily good. Read Letter To a Young Photographer HERE.
Freelance Switch has an article called The Part Time Photographer in this weeks archives. I admit to not having read it, it was a busy week, but it’s still open on my browser and if you want to beat me to it, you can read that article HERE.
Think Tank Photo, of whom I am a huge fan, released a new bag this month. It’s the Urban Disguise 70 Pro and it’s much like the already-large Urban Disguise 60, which I have and love, but it fits a pro-sized SLR as well. As if it were’n't already huge enough. I don’t use my UD60 for shooting, just as a carry on, but like all things Think Tank they hold tonnes of gear and are extremely thoughtfully made. More info on the Think Tank Photo site HERE.
The feedback from yesterday’s post was great, thank you. Looks like I hit a nerve. So to take us all into the weekend, a couple quotes that remind us of the weightier matters.
“We don’t take photographs with our cameras, we take them with our hearts and our minds. They are a reflection of ourselves, what we are, and what we think.” ~ Arnold Newman.
“It is not art in the professionalized sense about which I care, but that which is created sacredly. as a result of a deep inner experience, with all of oneself, and that becomes ‘art’ in time.” ~ Alfred Stieglitz
