365/2 291. Double rainbow.
365/2: 290. Lily.
365/2: 289. New Mexican autumn color contrast.
365/2: 288. Warm enough to sit out under the portale this evening. Nice sunset, too.
Later: Aforementioned sunset.
JUMP FOR JOY! Photo Project: Roland Tanglao #jumpforjoyphoto of the day!
I still maintain Roland has the best smile on the interwebs.
365/2: 287. Diving straight into sunset.
No chemtrail comments please. I’ll rip you a new @%#$@%$$%.
Italian Ways: The Temple of Valadier, a refuge for the soul.
The New Yorker: Copywrong.
I expect better of you, New Yorker. You’re on my watch list now.
365/2: 286. Galisteo Basin Preserve, late afternoon harsh light.
Photoshelter Blog: How this London Photographer Got 70,000 Followers on Twitter.
“I try to be intelligent in the way I build my following by targeting the people that I follow who will then follow me back.” But that’s the whole secret. Look at his follower/following ratio. Almost 1:1. Choosing people who follow back is not difficult. I could hire a kid to sit and lure followers eight hours a day for a week, and have a huge following - completely unrelated to the quality of my social posts or photography. No doubt there is an advantage to big follower numbers, but at what cost?
The Appendix: Photographing the Guillotine.
“... this will be and this has been.” Yes, exactly. Good article.
365/2: 285. Playing with light and software again.
Sorry I’m late with some of these 365’s. Still trying to plough through all the shots from Concorso ... last thing I want to do is deal with *another* photo. Editing is eating up all my creativity.
DP Review: Ferrania to restart film production in still and movie formats.
“Initial production will be for 35mm and 120 roll formats for stills, and Super 8 and 16mm movie film. The first batch of film, pledged to Kickstarter backers, will be an E6 process transparency film based on the 100 ASA ScotchChrome from the late 1990s, but the company says it wants to go on to produce color negative and black and white emulsions in a wide range of sheet and roll formats. ”
365/2: 284. Should have posted yesterday, but was feeling a bit under the weather.
Decided to do nothing more complex than reload my flash gear bags.
365/2: 282. Aspeniferous.
Rretronaut: WWI - Smiling for the cockpit camera
“Most of the pictures were taken by the pilot of the second man in a plane, usually the flying instructor; a few of the images were taken by the pilot.” Okay, any site named ‘retro’ should know that the rear position was the location of the pilot-in-command - unless it was an observation plane with a gun mounted aft. Whoever’s in the front, is taking a photo of the most important person in the plane.
365/2: 281. This crazy robin ...
... in the midst of a cold, COLD rainstorm, decides she wants to sit in the skanky bowl I put out for the coyotes to drink from. She did a little bathing, and sat there for at least ten minutes in the cold water. Weirdsville.
The Luminous Landscape: Two Weeks With The Olympus E-M1.
Hmmm. That photo comparing the Oly to Nikon with comparable length lenses. After taking a hit in the Range Rover at high speed while holding a conventional DSLR with 2.8 70-200, the weight savings is looking more attractive by the minute.
Paris Review: Inside the Offices of Therapists and Analysts.
Brilliant theme; quite revealing.
NY Times: For Photographers, the Image of a Shrinking Path.
“Can an amateur take a picture as good as a professional? Sure. [snip] Can they do it on demand? Can they do it again? Can they do it over and over? Can they do it when a scene isn’t that interesting?” Exactly why media buyers are ... crowdsourcing. They don’t need one professional when they can effectively search a million photographers’ portfolios for the right image.
Doesn’t work well for assignments or photo essays, however. Not yet, anyway.
The beard makes him look 20 years younger.
365/2: 280. Late again, but still blustery out.
Italian Ways: Furore - a hidden pearl on the Amalfi Coast.
What is not depicted, is that the little canyon there is dark for most of the day.
Hyperallergic: What Happens When National Geographic Steals Your Art?
“I mean, why not take the risk that the artist will never find out, and hell, if the artist does find out, what’s the likelihood that they will have registered their copyrighted artwork with the US Copyright Office? What’s the likelihood that the aggrieved artist will have access to a blog such as this one, to the NY Times, or the Huffington Post?”
365/2: 279. Unsettled weather.
Autumn’s here, for sure. Gotta get the boiler repaired soon.
