Some might argue that retouching photos is part of the jobs. Others would say that it’s an entirely different trade altogether.

We’ve covered this topic before, but it’s always worth a second mention. RAW photos. Specifically, why photographers don’t share RAW images with clients.
In one of her latest videos, photographer Jessica Kobeissi shares a collection of anecdotes and analogies explaining why it’s beyond reason to expect photographers to hand over their RAW files.
Sorry, Jared Polin, it looks like Reuters photographers won’t be shooting RAW anymore.
In an email sent out to freelance photographers, Reuters says it will no longer accept photos post-processed from RAW camera files. Instead, the international news agency says it will only accept JPEG images with ‘minimal processing’. [Read more…]
No matter how cheap I am, I always bear in mind that sometimes you get what you pay for. However, a recent bride doesn’t feel that way about a £40 (~$60 USD) camera she purchased to use on her honeymoon.
Kirsty Fuller, a bride from the UK, wanted to be able to have photos of her honeymoon to cherish for years to come. With this in mind, she purchased an 18 megapixel Polaroid IE826 from Argos to take along with her to Brazil. Upon loading the photos onto a computer at the end of the trip, she was ‘heartbroken’ to find that almost all of them were blurry very low quality. But, it’s when she went to return the allegedly defective camera that the real fun began.
This effective photo series by American photographer, Sage Sohier, provides a remarkably beautiful storyline to her latest book, At Home With Themselves. The 122 page book documents the lives of same sex couples living in America in the 1980’s, a time shrouded by fear as a frenzied public struggled to better understand the AIDS epidemic that had just began sweeping through the gay community. It was the pain of the AIDS crisis that inspired Sohier to embark on the project in 1986. After watching more and more gay men fall victim to the disease, Sohier began seeking out same sex couples that would allow her to visit their homes and take candid photos of them where they are most at ease.

I barricaded myself in my office this past weekend, hoping to face off against one of my demons. I fought off the usual distractions. No calls or email. No Facebook or Twitter. No YouTube, memes, or cat videos. I was a man on a mission and nothing was going to stop me. If this demon was to be truly be expelled from this dimension, it would take all of my concentration. After all, it’s not every day you admit to yourself that your internet favorites/bookmarks are glaringly and alarmingly out of control. I felt pretty good when I sat down and launched my browser. Admitting you have a problem is the first step, right? If you’re anything like I am, your favorites list is filled with links to articles and websites that grabbed your interest when you really didn’t have the time to fully explore them. With one well-intentioned click of the mouse I’d been adding mountains to my digital clutter on a daily basis. When I clicked on Firefox’s bookmarks icon, I was greeted by literally hundreds of entries– relatively few of which had actually been organized into folders.
The project involved shooting 12 of the common moves done in football (soccer if you live in the USA) by gorgeous models.
Tim shares that “The challenge was to create dynamic images of the women in action but still have a high level of female sexuality. There was a balance between being true to the “move” but at the same time showing the best assets of the models” [Read more…]
Graphic designer and illustrator Alon Avissar is putting a new twist on double exposures. Avissar was inspired by the dieing winter and wanted to experiment with seasonal portraits:
With it being the dead of winter and having been snowed in for the past couple days now, I starting thinking about what designs I could create based on the theme of ‘seasons
The result is a series of wonderfully delighting double exposure portraits each made to a season theme, with colors to match. [Read more…]
