To celebrate the new year, I have decided to release all my optic fiber photos under a Creative Commons Attribution – Non Commercial – Share Alike Licence.
This includes those photos that have already been published on this website and any new Fiber Optic photos I will release in the coming days and weeks.
I am adding a Creative Commons category to the blog so that all CC photos can be easily accessed. I will likely consider other thematic photos for CC distribution in 2013.
Madeleine by Benoît Felten For months, I’d been looking slightly fascinated at cyanotype prints. I was first exposed to them through Sinead McDonald, and then via 500px’s Britta Hershman. I loved the subdued and slightly uneven rendition. So when the opportunity arose to take a lesson with Sinead last time I was in Ireland, I totally [...]
Craft & Vision is David duChemin’s imprint of photography ebooks and if you’ve been reading this blog you know that I’ve read a number of them and generally like them (see reviews of Dodge & Burn and Portraits of Earth). One of the great things about these ebooks is that they’re dirt cheap, at $5 a pop (except for their magazine and a newly released Big Book). Well for the next three days, there’s a 50% discount on everything over at Craft & Vision except the aforementioned magazine and Big Book. The amount of useful information you’ll get for $2.50 a pop is honestly astounding, there are way worse ways to spend your money!
I have no affiliation with C&V, I’m just a generally happy customer who keeps being amazed at the quality of their products. Don’t hesitate to ask about specific books in comments if you’re interested. I don’t own them all but I have read a fair few!
A third shot from the Amsterdam Klezmer Band concert in April 2012 in Paris, this one from accordion player Theo van Tol. As a photographer, I love accordion players: the instrument offers such graphic possibilities… From the same concert you can check out photos of trombone player Joop van der Linden and trumpet player Gijs Levelt.
This is a black and white variant of Pink Sunrise. Interesting how the feeling it conveys is radically different, isn’t it?
Michael Freeman’s The Photographer’s Eye is something of a personal photography bible of mine. I’ve done two full page to page reads in about as many years, and I regularly flick through for nuggets of wisdom and inspiration. So this review will be enthusiastic, inevitably. It’s not like this is a confidential book by an [...]
