Here are our 10 favorite photography blog posts from the first week of June. In this week's
round-up, you'll find some egregious errors to either laugh at or learn from (or both!), helpful tips and of course just some flat-out beautiful imagery. Enjoy!
Ellen Seidler of Vox Indie penned a blog for the Copyright Alliance this week on her opinion on Google's response time for DMCA notices on its Blogger-hosted sites. Google thinks it's been doing a great job of streamlining its responses, but according to Seidler, it isn't. Have a read in case you ever come across your content illegally posted to someone else's blog! It's a little long, but very informative!
One day, bridal parties will figure out that docks aren't meant to hold 20 people at a time. Lucky for us, today isn't that day! Watch this group take the plunge. A couple crafty bridesmaids actually manage to escape!
You've got rules and contracts and stuff, but how do you get your clients to actually abide by them? Psychology for Photographers tackles how to lay down the law. It might come down to presentation (and properly setting up expectations)!
Photographer Steve McCurry posted to his blog a collection of harrowing images from a visit to Afghanistan. The images show pain and suffering but also beauty and hope. Take a break from your daily routine and take a look.
The cool thing about exhibits predicting the future of the world is that eventually, you get to look back on them and see how they did! This collection of photographs from the World's Fair, hosted in New York City in 1964, shows just that, particularly those from the Futurama exhibit. Think they nailed it?
That's unconfirmed, of course, but we're going to give Lee Thompson credit for it anyway, and definitely credit for being one gnarly dude. The photographer, and co-founder of The Flash Pack, was in Brazil shooting preparations for this month's World Cup, and somehow found himself with permission to not only photograph, but climb to the top of Christ the Redeemer. Read about his experience and see the results!
25 years ago this Wednesday, the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) violently cleared Beijing's Tiananmen Square of protesters, ending a six-week demonstration that had called for democracy and widespread political reform. While Chinese censors have blocked Internet access to terms like "never forget" in an effort to silence talk of the anniversary, the photos remain. Take a look.
Have you seen these?! They look like GIFs, but they are actually portraits created by photographer Romain Laurent. And not created through an app! Photojojo tracked him down and asked for his secrets. Check them out!
We had you at that headline, didn't we? National Geographic photographer Peter Essick traveled through the Ansel Adams Wilderness to capture images in Adams' style. See the beautiful results!
Don't you wish you had a lens like the Hubbel? I mean it'd be hard to carry around and all, but I bet you've never imagined creating a composite image of thousands of galaxies! Well NASA did just that, so be jealous. Take a look.
And that's that! We did it again. Don't forget to share your own favorite posts over on theLoop
. See you next Friday!
