Vox: Someone successfully used a drone to breach the White House security perimeter.

Drugs over the border, visiting the President ... if you wondered why the FAA was dragging its feet, these seem to be good examples.

Mashable/Report: Sports Illustrated lays off all staff photographers.

I imagine satff photographers have gotten as lean as they can, and yet they still can’t win against freelancers. When these transitions happen, I find consistent quality goes down.

Dazed: Drone carrying six pounds of meth crashes at Mexican border.

New commercial use. Not quite what anyone expected, I’m sure. Border Patrol’s going to get real good at ‘wing shots’.

Photography Criticism: Sadakichi Hartmann, “On Plagiarism and Imitation.”  [1900]

Link ‘o the day. “Heine is right, borrow as much as you like. But be certain that you master the accumulations and accreted experiences of others to such an extent that they have become your own, only that you can rear on the understructure of precedent accomplishments still higher and more imposing monuments of beauty.” Great. As you know, I’m constantly on the search for decent photographic criticism.

The Luminous Landscape: Gimbal/Monopod use with long lenses.

Of interest. You know I was unimpressed with the sharpness of the Tamron 150-600. Sigma has a new lens at the exact same mm’s, and I look forward to a rental.

PhotoShelter Blog: Why Photographers Aren’t Artists.

The successful photographer is, as Deresiewicz’s friend explained, now an entrepreneur who values having 10,000 contacts more than having Malcolm Gladwell’s mythic 10,000 hours of professional development.” That contention makes me twitch somethin’ awful. I understand the point, but don’t agree with the result. Paraphrased: “You don’t have to be good, just popular.” What do you folks think?

Low key grid.

Screwing around with lighting. Last selfie, I scared the hell out of half the internet. Hopefully this won’t break the interwebs.
