A slightly longer links roundup than usual, in the previous month my trip to India messed with my schedules. So this month we’ll have the October and November links in the same post.
Our full coverage of this year’s, with a special focus on the great interviews of six of the event’s speakers.
It’s that time of the year again.
Nick Â Brandt talks about his conservation projects.
About the upcoming (at the time) release of Nikon Df and the trend of cameras with a retro look and feel.
Like everything, there’s no camera for all situations and scenarios. This is the reason why I ended up replacing one of my DSLRs for a mirrorless camera.
Another opinion on the future of DLSR, but this one lacks the “are you still using a DSLR??!” tone found in most articles online, a tone that really annoys me. And the timing is perfect, with the recent release of the Sony a7/a7R or the Olympus OMD-EM1, cameras that could take mirrorless outside the realm of street and travel photography, the natural environment of most models today.
Technology changes and I’m not fondly attached to one or other another. DSLR’s are certainly in decline and I honestly think I may have bought my last DSLR (mostly because I plan to keep this one for a long time) but they’re certainly not dead yet.
Generally speaking I loathe self portraits of girls in front of a mirror. Not in this case.
Sometimes a great photo project takes years to finish, I can easily remember the Gypsies photos by Josef Koudelka. In this case it took five years.
Yahoo is testing a new Flickr Beta page. I haven’t received the opt-in link, but if you have share your feedback to make it better. UPDATE: Yahoo addressed most of the issues from these first versions and now works and looks much better.
I guess for “really” important issues there’s no government shutdown…
People, go easy on the filters.
I’m a great fan of Nick Brandt and his wildlife photos, but this is one step beyond: taking dead, calcified animals from the harsh Lake Natron and posing them as alive. With little surprise these photos became viral in the last weeks.
Some humor on the film vs digital debate.
