Photoheadlines will run a series on the Photography Olympics, the first installment covers three events: Postcarding, Branding and Bragging. I’m looking forward to the rest!
Jill Greenberg’s infamous photos of children crying and upset are in today’s Sunday Times magazine in the article “Taking candy from a baby”. It’s unfortunate that such a reputable publication chose to publish the photos and I can only imagine the horrified response from parents as they sat down to breakfast with the newspaper this [...]
Photodoto published Making Portraits this morning which got me thinking more about my street photography tomorrow. I wonder will people pose on the street for me? Do I have the nerve to approach complete strangers, make them feel at ease, connect with them and take their photo? I know I won’t need it when I’m [...]
Digital Photo School’s latest posting is about the eternal question, RAW Vs Jpeg? It’s a really good read and goes through “what a RAW file is .. compared to a Jpeg” which can be a bit mysterious if all you’re used to is uploading images straight from your camera! The article was written in response [...]
Deviant Art member +cweeks has put together a book entitled Street Photography for the Purist from the photographs of several DA members. It also includes forwards and commentary from those people and looks like a great read. It’s a 160 page tome, downloadable as a PDF and weighing in at just over 10MB. I’ve skimmed [...]

The extra 2 million pixels only adds a small border worth of pixels around images so [...]
David (I think, there’s no author information on the post) of Digital Photography School has rediscovered his wide angle lens! He has a few examples, and the kids shots are particularly good. The two at the bottom of the page aren’t anything to write home about however. I’d have got closer in on the violin [...]
This thread on boards.ie ran a bit out of control. Mention the words “naked” and “girl” in the same sentence and you’re bound to have a whole bunch of testoserone filled males jumping in to offer their advice and opinions. Anyway, someone is looking for a photographer to do her first “Suicide Girls” shoot. Read [...]
David at Strobist has linked to all his flash lighting articles in one place. It’s a really good place to go if you want to get the most out of your flash. Another great resource is Photonotes: Eos Flash for users of Canon cameras and flash units. There’s some great bits of info there.
