Flickr member fingerprinz shoots with a Leica M3, a 50mm f/2 lens and Tri-x film. His work is some of the best I’ve seen in a long while, excellent eye for light and detail and of course, exposure.
The [Canon Hack Development Kit (or C.H.D.K. for short)] software has allowed photographers using more than 50 models of Canon PowerShot cameras to reprogram the time lapse instructions to record construction projects or to use motion-sensing programs to capture animals in the deep woods. It can also be used to alter the camera’s exposure control to produce imaginative images in difficult lighting.
Wow, fantastic piece by Peter Wayner on a loosely knit group of developers who write and share firmware hack scripts for Canon PowerShot cameras.
This is a fantastic documentary film on the history of pixel art, both digital and analog. Very well done.
Sara Krulwich’s incredible images of New York theater.
This is a nice compilation post over at PetaPixel. I’ve seen them all but if you haven’t they’re worth a look.
A full length version of Nike’s “Write the Future” advertisement. Absolutely spectacular. Watch full screen, turn it up.
Between blogs like Peter Nencini’s and Lisa Congdon’s A Collection a Day I’m finally seeing a focus for my ongoing interest in both collecting and attempting to document my collections. There is also a connection to scrapbooking here.
In short, it’s not just the collecting, it’s also the connecting and arranging (and photographing) for both meaning and visual interest.
