  1. Zno - next gen photobooks, Layflat Photo Books…

    Because I came across these a couple of weeks ago and then forgot the name, unsurprisingly. (via The Online Photographer)

  2. The Online Photographer: How To Buy Lenses

    A nice summary of a series of posts about camera lenses, for future reference when/if I’m feeling flush.

  3. The Online Photographer: LR Replacement Photo Editing Software

    Lots and lots of thoughtful comments discussing replacements for Lightroom. The closest to a consensus might be Capture One, with Affinity Photo as a Photoshop replacement.

  4. Adobe unveils all-new cloud-based Lightroom CC, rebrands old application ‘Lightroom Classic’

    This doesn’t make me feel good. Wondering if I should jump from Lightroom now (to what?) before becoming stuck in something harder to get out of. (via The Online Photographer)

  5. Abandoned States: Places In Idyllic 1960s Postcards Have Transformed Into Scenes Of Abandonment : DCist

    I’m a sucker for lined-up “now and then” photos and these of holiday spots in the Catskills are nice. (via The Online Photographer)

  6. Gerhard Steidl Is Making Books an Art Form - The New Yorker

    Profile of the German book-maker, a description that undersells this article. (via Russell Davies)

  7. Cody Cobb

    Lovely landscape photography. (via The Online Photographer)

  8. Strobist: Lighting 101

    How to do photography lighting. A really nice, clear introduction.

  9. continuum | Flickr

    Although I love Chris Dorley-Brown’s photos, I hadn’t seen this series he’d done before. Photos, both by him, of the same London locations years, or decades, apart. Nicely done.

  10. Interview with Chris Dorley-Brown | The Great Leap Sideways

    Lots of interesting things about his great photography, and about London, in this 2012(?) interview. “London is really still cleaning up after a war that ended in 1945.”

  11. Headshot Hunter | Compare Actor Headshot Photographers

    I’m not sure why I’m surprised this exists, but it does. The search/browse form’s a bit confusing, but still.

  12. I’m Google

    Lovely Tumblr of photographs, each one similar to the previous, but slightly different, gradually changing.

  13. chris dorley-brown

    Some lovely photos of mostly east London. Good colours and more. (via The Online Photographer)

  14. A Visit to the Treasure Vaults

    Some good stuff about how Kodak was often too early with digital camera technology, not too late, and was no good at marketing it.

  15. Rightmove.co.uk - Featured Collections

    Sure I’ve said this before, but I hope Rightmove, Zoopla, and/or estate agents are archiving photos. It’d be an amazing resource for historians.

  16. Reading Right-to-Left | booktwo.org

    James Bridle on form. “I know people don’t read books like they used to, and they don’t think like they used to, but I struggle to care. … I’m feeling more sure of [the internet’s] cultural value and legacy, and more assertive about stating it.” Also, that reading a landscape right-to-left stuff.

  17. Timo Arnall - People using phones, today in London.

    Some lovely animated gifs from Timo. Hypnotic.

  18. Teju Cole (@_tejucole) • Instagram photos and videos

    I’m really enjoying his series of images about the Mona Lisa.

  19. Light, landscape, lives, Kate Kirkwood

    Really lovely photos from the Lake District. Simple but gorgeous. (via The Online Photographer)

  20. Freelance Jun14: How I paid my mortgage by chasing internet sites that stole my work - meeting report

    One photographers’ experiences of successfully chasing down copyright infringers, online and off. (via @mildlydiverting)

  21. The Online Photographer: The Culture of Photography

    Both for the topic – about how the different kinds of photography are changing – but also as an example of a blog with routinely great (moderated) comments. It’s also wonderful that Mike Johnston pulls out the best comments at the end of each post.

  22. BLDGBLOG: 100 Views of a Drowning World

    I love these images; click through to the Tumblr for more, but linking to this for the nice commentary too. Love them.

  23. Kiev’s fatigue

    Really good photos of people in Kiev. Maybe taken before the recent fighting. Just waiting, tired. (via The Online Photographer)

  24. Photography, hello — Software ate the camera, but freed the photograph by Craig Mod

    So many quotable bits. And it’s about more than cameras. About the uncomfortable but fruitful position of straddling technological shifts. About the value of a new product that simplifies only a tiny number of steps. About the importance of the network to story-telling.

  25. Photo scanning made easy. We collect from you | Vintage Photo Lab

    They scan your old photos. Not extortionate, given how long it’d take to do yourself. (via Noisy Decent Graphics)

  26. Time travel on Behance

    I rather like these, the artist inserting herself taking a photo into old photos. (via Kottke)

  27. HINT.FM: The Art Of Reproduction

    I like this idea - making a famous image out of a mosaic of different versions of it found online - but i hate that needless faux-3D tiled effect. Odd. (via The Online Photographer)

  28. Implications

    “Andreas Gursky allegedly makes ten pieces a year. Ansel Adams said twelve good photographs in a year was good production.”

  29. Leningrad Siege: Now and Then | English Russia

    Very simple, a blending of old and new photos, but very effective.

  30. 1906 Earthquake Blended with Today | Shawn Clover

    Lovely merging of photos of San Francisco from 1906 and today. (via New Aesthetic)

  31. The Online Photographer: Set Those Expectations Low

    “Photography is a superb hobby, one of the best. It’s when you try to make a living at it that it is so likely to resist you. I don’t think other hobbies have this problem. I mean, consider, say, fly-fishing, or building plastic model planes. Very few people who do those things assume they’re going to ‘go pro’ someday. Very few people try. It doesn’t generally come up.”

  32. User Guide: Getting the most out of the Olympus E-M5: Digital Photography Review

    For future reference. (One can dream.) But also, blimey, are cameras the most complicated and complexly configurable items of consumer electronics available today? With the most clumsy interfaces?

  33. The rise of bokeh photography

    The BBC’s Paul Mason on using SLRs to shoot news footage, and the different kinds of video quality there are now (cf Charlie Brooker’s recent article on news footage quality).

  34. Interpreting Black and White, Part I

    I really like the differences in how people treated the same black and white photo.

  35. Freelance Fees Guide: Photography / Books

    As a guide for when companies email you saying, “Can we use your Flickr photo in our book?” (via Haddock)

  36. Fuji X10 EXR camera, suggestions for optimum performance: Digital Photography Review

    Bookmarking because should I get one of these (a big IF) I won’t remember where this article was.

  37. Street Fashion Photography Is Messing With Me « Thought Catalog

    Ha, very good. My memories of photos on these blogs does collapse into: women in casually very little; women in expensive smartness; men, usually older, in odd combinations.

  38. Twitpic, Twitter, Lockerz, YFrog, Mobypic – good or bad? | Jon Boyes - Photographer - blog

    A comparison of the T&Cs of five Twitter-oriented image hosting sites. Avoid Twitter, Lockerz and Twitpic; use YFrog or Mobypic.

  39. Smithsonian Institution Archives - Digitization Standards for Images

    The Smithsonian’s rough guide for scanning and archiving photos. (via Digital Beyond)

  40. The Online Photographer: What I Would Get If I Were Starting Now

    I like this guide to how to start out in photography, particularly the bit about buying initial equipment and then not even looking at possible new kit for five years. Just do photography, don’t shop.

  41. X100Photo | Street photography in the 21st century

    Quite enjoying this blog about street photography using the new (and barely available) Fuji X100. Super specific, nicely done so far. It’s a step on from window-shopping.

  42. Sohei Nishino - Diorama map London (Detailed info)

    Stunning photographic collage photo-maps of cities. Currently at Michael Hoppen Gallery, SW3 3TD until 2nd April. (via Blech)

  43. Thoughts of a Bohemian » Blog Archive » The fire this time

    It’s not just digital archives that are being destroyed: The liquidator in charge of the defunct Corbis Sygma agency is planning to destroy an archive of 12 million photos. We need a real world Archive Team. Grrrrrrrrr. (via The Online Photographer)

  44. Hundreds of Tourist Photos Weaved into One (18 total) - My Modern Metropolis

    Really stunning images of tourist sites made out of hundreds of overlaid tourist snaps. Beautiful. I want these on my walls. (via Blech)

  45. Barbican - Images | Jamie Smith

    Some nice photos of the Barbican by a student who’s doing a project on it. They’d be even nicer if they didn’t have a copyright statement stamped across their middles though.

  46. New Lightroom plug-in – CaptureTime to Exif - John Beardsworth

    Bascially a Lightroom-plugin front-end for Exiftool. Lets you easily update the Date Time Original EXIF field (eg, for setting the date a scanned photo was taken) but also add other arguments manually.

  47. The Online Photographer: How To Improve Digital Print Tonality

    Simple tip for improving tonal separation: “Pull up Unsharp Masking. Set the Amount for somewhere between 8 and 15% (depending on taste, subject, and printer). Set the Radius for around 60 pixels. Set the Threshold to 0.”

  48. Lu.ma - LoopIt

    Nice camera strap for small cameras. I’ll forget what this is called if/when I ever want one. (via Daring Fireball)

  49. Apres Garde

    Another Tumblr blog of scenes from Google Streetview, this time more “artistic”/beautiful shots, rather than quirky. Stunning. (via Blech)

  50. Jon Rafman (9Eyes)

    Amazing collection of Google Streetview images from around the world. Fascinating. Streetview is going to be an *incredible* historical document. (via Crackunit)
