Speed Links for 05-09-2008
Today’s speedlinks comes a little bit before the usual monthly time for the speed links. The reasons for this is that there are several links that I wanted to share and that will have less relevance if they were not published today. Specifically, I am talking about the monthly TimeShoot project which will expire today.
I tried to get a little bit of everything on today’s post and cover studio, digital workflow, photography fun and heavier articles discussing copyright issues. Enjoy the mix.
- The Wall Street Journal lifted my image!
Leggnet Digital Capture
The guys at the Wall Street Journal provide a beacon on how to use photographer’s intellectual property. Rich tells the story of how one of his images was published in the Wall Street Journal without him knowing.
- 35mm pinhole camera
Jim Talkington put up a rocking video showing how he makes his pinhole cameras. It is never a bad time to take some analog shot the old fashioned way.
- Orphan Works bill introduced in US
Orphan Works is kind of a new type of copy right for works that their owner can not be found. Photodoto provides a full premier on the subject. Chase Jarvis thinks the bill is not great, but provides some damage control over what this bill might have been.
- Monthly TimeShoot – May 9th @ 12pm ET!
Shaw is doing his monthly timeshoot project again, and this is a good reason to take the camera out of storage and go out and take some pictures. This timeshoot target is today at 12pm. I like this project, as it can creates a shared work among fellow photographers from all over the world.

Zack is running a segmented tutorial on creating and using white seamless backdrops. The first three parts deal with setup and gear, Light management (+ part two) and Black backdrops. A great read for anyone who is doing a home studio.

- An Approach to Street Photography
The Online Photographer
Mitch Alland shares the story of how he became a street photographer. A great read in my mind as Mitch shares his reasons, his motivations and more. I found that I could really relate to the story, as I am sure many aspiring photographers can.
- Digital Workflow with Adobe Lightroom
Kerry from L7 photo is doing a series of video Lightroom tutorials. He covers the workflow as well as some tips and tricks. If reading the Lightroom e-book was not enough for you and you want more Lightroom, this is the place for you.
