Friday Resource Roundup

resourcesSorry I’m late with today’s post; teaching a workshop all day and it just completely slipped my mind. Having said that I’m writing this entirely coffee-free this morning so don’t expect lucidity.

Brad Jarvis pointed me to David Tejada’s blog for a post about shooting through a diffusion panel as I mentionned yesterday – link HERE. I use this technique alot and love it.

The Intergalactic emporium of all things gear-related is B&H PHOTO in NYC and they’re offering big savings right now on selected Canon (expires July 19th), Leica (expires June 30th) and Nikon (no expiry mentionned but I’m pretty sure it’s not one of these eternal offers.) The nice thing about this annual B&H tradition is that it gives you immediate rebates without having to wait for weeks for a cheque to come. Or not come. You know how it works.

Steven Frischling, aka Flying With Fish, is holding The Great Mountainsmith Bag Giveaway and all you have to do is relay your worst travel scenario to him for a chance to win one of three Mountainsmith bags.

Travel Photographers take note – the PDN/Nat Geo Traveler WORLD IN FOCUS CONTEST is up and if you’ve not yet entered, the deadline is Sept 08/08. As with all these things, read the rules and conditions and give away only those rights you feel comfortable with.

Finally, a quote:

“When making a picture, the sound of the shutter can “click off” the scene. One immediately turns to look for the next thing to shoot. To avoid killing what you behlod, linger on it. Not merely saving the view for posterity, but savoring it in the now is the only antidote to this subtle occupational hazard.” – Jeff Berner.

Have a great weekend. Take some time to shoot something that moves you.

“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.” - Don McCullin

Quoted: Henry Holmes Smith

“Somebody said recently that the best thing a student could do was to get in some shows and publish a book; but nothing about becoming a human being, nothing about having important feelings or concepts of humanity. That’s the sort of thing that’s bad education. I’d say be a human being first and if you […]

Quoted: Jay Maisel

“It is incumbent upon you to make sure you are getting what you want at the moment you take the picture. It would be best for you to spend more time thinking of the quality of your pictures and less time thinking about the quality of your pixels. The parameters of your vision are more […]
