Photographers

Cardiff

I am always inspired (and humbled) as a photographer as I cull through the Photography Bay Flickr Group each week. As I was checking out some of the additions to the group this week, something stood out a little more than usual.

That something was Flickr user andyathlon‘s additions to the Photography Bay Group Pool, which included the HDR time lapse videos below. [click to continue…]

If you have read any photography websites this week, then you have probably seen this poster already. I first saw it over at Carlos Miller’s Photography is Not a Crime blog.

Somehow, the TSA has managed to take a general warning for everyone to “be on alert” and depict photographers who photograph planes as terrorist suspects.  Newsflash to TSA: planes are fun to photograph.  Ever hear of Airliners.net?

Maybe you’ll be ok though if you don’t wear a hoodie.

Draper Mountains

It’s time for our weekly break from the gear for a few minutes so we can enjoy another round of reader photos from the Photography Bay Flickr Group.

One of the things that I really enjoy about these sifting through these photos every week is seeing all the different kinds of cameras that people use – from point and shoots, to iPhones, to DSLRs and medium format cameras. This all just goes to show that it’s really not about the camera. That lightning photo at the top from sumoetx? Shot with a compact Canon PowerShot A720 IS.

As much as we all love cameras, lenses and other gadgets, it’s not about the gear.

Check out the rest of the photos below. [click to continue…]

Uncle Earle

As a follow-up to the buzzing story from earlier in the week, a California woman has come forward with a rather convincing claim that her Uncle Earl Brooks shot the $200 million+ Ansel Adams negatives in 1923.

She has original prints in her possession that are strikingly similar to negatives from the Ansel Adams garage sale collection.
