Spent the last couple of days making the leap from PC to Mac. While setting up the browsers, I did some link cleaning. Some are worth sharing — a true grab bag:
* Get Gritty: Scott Kelby tells us how to get that “cool, gritty look.”
* Find Some Release: A page of model releases from the National Press Photographers Association.
* List of Lists: This buy has made a list of 87 photo sites he consider great.
* Talking about Seeing: Pixchannel has interviews with great photographers — like Eddie Adams and Ruth Bernhard — on why they do what they do.
* Obama Rama: The New York Times as a zippy compilation of readers’ photos of the Obama inaugural (told you I was doing some deep cleaning!).
* Foiled Again: David Hobby, aka The Strobist, tells us how to use aluminum foil for shiny table top photos.
* For Laughs: Get your eyes out of the histogram and onto xkcd, a web comic. Here’s a panel about photography.
Link-gathering while I’m on hold with Adobe:
* Woodstuck: Magnum puts up a slideshow of photos by Elliot Landy from Woodstock. And, yes — since you asked — I was there.
* Crazy, man, just crazy: Dirck Halstead at The Digital Journalist gets asked, “Why would you be a photojournalist today?” And answers, “You have to be crazy.” Then adds: “I have always considered being crazy as important to a photographer as being curious.”
* Taking the biz out of news business: Jack Shafter says at the Slate that what’s bad for business just might be good for journalism: “If the downside of the battered-down barriers to entry is less pay and lower status, the potential upside is that a flood of new entrants into the field could portend a journalistic renaissance.” Now, let’s see about getting paid.
* Putting the bizz into journalism: National Press Photographers Association has a toolkit of business practices.
* Eddie Adams reviewed: Sportshooter has a review of “Eddie Adams: Vietnam.” One quote from Adams: “Making pictures in Vietnam is easy…Things are happening all around you and you just have to press a button and not get killed.”
