The Luminous Landscape: Vision 13 - Photographer’s Block.

Good advice. I’d add skim through Newhall’s History of Photography.

DP Review: Sony announces Alpha 7 II full-frame mirrorless camera with 5-axis IS.

Ah. Because of the MPs, this is still the most intriguing of the mirrorless cameras (IMHO). This may finally spur a rental.

Photo Attorney: Forest Service Chief Issues Directive on Photography Permits.

Cut to the chase: “I also want to emphasize that commercial photography only requires a permit if the photography takes place at locations where members of the public are not allowed, or uses models, sets, or props. Commercial film and photography permit fees should be primarily viewed as land-use fees. If the activity presents no more impact on the land than that of the general public, then it shall be exempt from permit requirements.” My italic emphasis.

Roads & Kingdoms: An Indian at Auschwitz.

Looking at the carnage on display in Auschwitz, my mind jogs back to all the casual references made about Adolf Hitler in India. ‘India needs a Hitler,’ is the most common of them.

BBC: Topless sunbather photographed by estate agent drone.

Mandy Lingard, who was sunbathing in her back garden wearing just a thong, said she realised only when she saw an advertising board near her home.” Would turn into a liability or harrassment suit in the US.  Wait for it.

365/2: 319. Mixing things up a little, sunset in B/W.

365/2: 319.

If you look close, underneath the bright clouds, you’ll see small ‘wisps’ of brightness. Not sure if those are airplanes or just a squadron of UFOs. Probably UFOs. I’d better pack some clean underwear and socks just in case.

PDN Online: Photographers’ Rep Julian Richards on Why He Abruptly Quit the Business.

Digital changed the landscape. Before the pixel, craft was still an elemental component of the narrative. A process that involved trusting strips of cellulose in a mysterious dark box was replaced by instant, impeccable rendering, in situ on vast monitors. The photographer’s role as sorcerer and custodian of the vision was diminished: The question ‘have we got it?’ became redundant. Now it was the photographer asking the art director asking the client. Which is a big deal.”  I want to pullquote more, but it’s against my religion.  Go read it, seriously.

ArtDaily: French photographer and Pablo Picasso confidant, Lucien Clergue, dies aged 80.

The best-known works from Clergue were his nude images and landscapes, which led to him being the first photographer to be admitted to the elite Academie Francaise, the guardian of the French language. ” His daughter has a portfolio up, here [NSFW; tasteful nudity].  RIP, good sir - often copied, rarely referenced, never equalled.

DP Review: Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM becomes a reality.

[Throws hands in air] YES! YES!  One of my favorite lenses, but the push-pull was a problem. Sucked dust like a Dyson. This new one’s a serious contender for my bucks before Xmas.

Museum of Selfies.

Funny once. Other than that, I can imagine people shoving to get near valuable paintings.  No offense to those who started it, but I hope it dies as a meme soon.  There is also something frightening about forcing modern smartphone narcissism on images of the past. Psychs, analyze away on that one ...
