Well! Have I been saving up some good stuff for you all! In case you missed any of these while wandering the interwebs for intriguing photography related stories, never fear!!
–Amazing GIGAPIXEL photography! A gigapixel image has one billion pixels…can you even fathom that? If not, or even if so, the photos should help to give you an idea! The Yosemite example might be the coolest, because it allows you to click and see the nearly hidden hikers, giving the best sense of scale.
-Some great tips on black and white photography! Basic, useful, insightful, and great reminders if you already know the stuff, too.
-A really well illustrated explanation of how focal length affects depth of field, and images in general.
-A crazy story about a stolen photo! If you’ve ever had one of yours stolen, you’ll be especially interested I bet!
-A really interesting criticism/article about nostalgia in our culture and in photography. Discusses Vivian Maier, records, and our return to film: “What if all that talk about analog photography being more real is just a form of nostalgia? Nostalgia for the good old days when men were still men, and photographs showed you the truth?” What do you think, guys? What are your thoughts?
