Friday's Resource Roundup

In Resources by David0 Comments

The UPS guy came 8 times this week. I’m worn out with all the gear. So this week’s resource round-up is gear-free. If it wasn’t, and I was ok with showing you THIS, then I’d also be ok showing you THIS. If you ever wanted to see how a photographer packs for the Olympics, these links will make you drool. …

Well folks it’s that time again; time for the Friday resource roundup. Now sometimes this is just an excuse not to come up with something that takes more effort, but that is not the case today as there is also a video tutorial that took me a long time and if I don’t get an “A” for execution then I …

It is time again for another hodgepodge of resource, gathered from the far reaches of the cyber galaxy. First, in the interest of keeping as many photographers from bankruptcy and therefore living the dream as long as possible – check out Freelance Switch’s article 10 Items You Absolutely Need For Financial Security. On the same topic, Photopreneur has a post …

Multimedia + Software

In Resources, Web/Tech by David3 Comments

Multimedia The pundits are all in accord on this: multimedia is where things are going. Not ALL things, but big, important things. They’re going to Multimedia. No idea what it means. But hey, they said the Pet Rock would never catch on and, man, were they wrong. But folks, this shouldn’t scare you. If you’ve already embraced that the job …

The Hawaiian Hiatus: Almost Over.

In News & Stuff, Resources, Travel by David0 Comments

Still in Hawaii. Spent Saturday snorkelling in the waters just North of Kona. Bought a small waterproof film camera and shot my first roll of film in five years. Strange not being able to look at them right away. Spent Sunday snorkelling at Cook’s monument with my students, bookended by a forced march up and down the mountain. If that …

Wednesday's Miscellanea.

The Travel Photographer links to a great article by Vincent Laforet. It’s a lengthy one but for aspiring professionals it’s a must read. The title, The Cloud is Falling, should suggest that Laforet, who I have great respect for, spends the article running amuck and crying “the sky is falling, the sky is falling.” He doesn’t. Not really. But ignore …

Friday Resource Roundup

In GEAR, Quoted, Resources by David1 Comment

Sorry 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 …

Visual Literacy

In Books, Resources, Thoughts & Theory by David3 Comments

I suspect the democratic nature of photography – the fact that anyone can pick up a camera and begin making photographs without the kind of talent or training needed to be, say, a painter – is what is responsible for some of the best and worst of this art. The best because it puts it into the hands of children …
