Here it is, the first photography links roundup for 2014.
Again citizen journalism, the argument that anyone can take a photo nowadays, which made photographers redundant is as valid as saying anyone who has learned how to write can be a journalist. The root of the problem hasn’t been solved, media still hasn’t found a business model that fits the digital age.
I’m a great fan of disabling focusing with the shutter button and using the dedicated AF-ON button instead:
-You have more control over the camera. The camera does not have to re-focus every time you lift your finger from the shutter release.
-You can instantly switch between AF-single and AF-continues by deciding how long you are pressing the AF-ON button.
-You get great control over stationary objects and landscapes as the camera does not try to autofocus once you recompose.
The circular train, one of my fondest memories of Yangon and Myanmar. Myself, Â Ruben and Rita spent half a day with circular train, between the few hours of the trip itself and the hours spent at the train station before going on board.
