  2. 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)

  3. 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)

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.”

  7. 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)

  8. Apres Garde

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

  9. 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 Streetview is going to be an *incredible* historical document.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)

  10. A Room to Let in Old Aldgate | Spitalfields Life

    Some lovely 19th century photos of the area around the City, Spitalfields, Barbican, etc.

  11. Some thoughts on Lightroom Keywords – Chuqui 3.0

    I’m fascinated, amused and horrified that people have to spend so much time on thinking about the kind of thing that was once a relatively obscure part of a small profession. (via John Beardsworth)

  12. Workflow smart collections - John Beardsworth

    I don’t need anything this complicated, but I find this ability to create complicated but very custom workflows fascinating.

  13. The Online Photographer: Mike’s Darkroom

    I’ve been really enjoying these posts about constructing a darkroom. Not because I want one, but because reading about the layout decisions made by someone with lots of experience is fascinating. There’s so much a novice would miss.

  14. The Online Photographer: The Best Photography How-To Books

    Excellent, a short list of practical photography book recommendations by someone who knows their stuff.

  15. Jeffrey Friedl’s Blog » An Analysis of Lightroom JPEG Export Quality Settings

    Even if you’re not directly interested in Lightroom, it’s interesting to look at the many examples here to see how different levels of JPEG compression affect quality/file size.

  16. Chapter 10 - Examples (from Digital Restoration 1st-ed) (PDF)

    Fascinating, close to magic. Second edition of the book is out now and I’d love to do this kind of thing. You know, if I managed to double my available time.

  17. Awkward Stock Photos

    Can’t. Stop. Looking. Just. One. More. Page… (via Kottke)

  18. Historypin | Home

    This is rather nice, especially when you finally get to viewing the historical photos in place in Google Streetview. (via Beyond the Beyond)

  19. Search and Replace metadata in Lightroom

    “A Lightroom 2 and 3 plug-in designed for bulk changes to text in Metadata Panel fields.” Could be handy for some tidying up.

  20. Issues with how Apple Aperture 3 writes metadata

    What a mess. Although some of these issues might have been fixed in the just-released 10.6.4 OS X update which “addresses IPTC metadata compatibility issues” in Aperture 3…?

  21. Know Before You Go: Tickets May Come at a Higher Price Than You Realize | Electronic Frontier Foundation

    If you buy a Burning Man ticket you assign copyright on any photos you take at the event to the organisers.

  22. Photos of my models

    Amazing photos… of *models*… keep watching until you see the little models to scale. (via The Online Photographer)

  23. Looking Into the Past - a gallery on Flickr

    Lovely photos featuring an old photo of the same view held between camera and background. Oh, just look, it’ll make more sense.

  24. The Online Photographer: Panasonic GF1 vs. Olympus E-P1, Part I

    Solely for this quote: “These two [bundled] applications just can’t possibly be as lame and useless as they appear to be … They can’t be—right? Because if faced with a choice of working day in, day out in one of these environments or picking up trash by the side of the freeway with a pointy stick guarded by a fat man with a shotgun and a big wad of tobacco in his cheek, I would need time to decide. They both seem like they’d be torture, but least in a chain gang I’d be outdoors.”

  25. Flogr - Project Hosting on Google Code

    Looks like a nice way to make a portfolio site from your photos stored on Flickr. Example: http://thecarruthfamily.com/michael/photos/ (via Infovore)

  26. The Online Photographer: Tips for Finding ‘1000 True Fans’

    A photographer, six months after starting to fund himself by getting people to subscribe to his work.

  28. The Google Maps Image Cutter (UCL Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis)

    “An application designed to take any image or digital photo and cut it into tiles which are displayed on a Google Map.”

  29. Walton Rocks! - a set on Flickr

    A nice simple set of photos of bits of Walton-on-the-Naze, Essex.

  30. Asian Poses - The Definitive Guide to Asian Poses

    A blog describing all the common standard poses people in that part of the world use in photographs. Fascinating. (via Kottke)

  31. The Online Photographer: The Leica as Teacher

    I like this idea. Despite the follow-up explaining why only a Leica will do, I’ve just bought a decent second hand 50mm lens for my old Pentax K1000 and may give this a go. (via Infovore)

  32. Richard Nicholson Photography - ‘Last One Out, Please Turn On the Light’

    Lovely and sad photos of disappearing darkrooms. A good accompaniment to those photos of Soho record shops that went round a while back. I miss darkrooms. (via Infovore)

  33. Streetphoto :: View topic - G20 riot posed photo

    A good description of how scenes like the two guys smashing the windows of a branch of RBS surrounded by photographers happen. (via Moleitau on Twitter)

  34. Photographic collection homepage from London transport museum

    More than 16,000 historical photos of London, nicely browsable. You can even add comments to each one. Would be nice if they enlarged bigger, but otherwise fab.

  35. 493. South Park, San Francisco.

    South Park around 1860 or 1870. One of many great old photos on this University of California site.

  36. Matthew Johnston’s slideshow on Flickr - Liberty City vs New York City

    Photos comparing bits of New York with their ‘Grand Theft Auto 4’ counterparts. Amazing and beautiful. Sometimes it’s only the quality of the photos that sets them apart. (via Blackbeltjones)

  37. CR Blog » Blog Archive » The Disappearing World of Soho’s Independent Record Shops

    I was on Berwick St the other day, but didn’t go down far enough to see the demolition opposite Somerfield. I so hope they hang on, but then I buy MP3s over CDs whenever I can, so… (via Alan Connor)

  38. Brent Black Panama Hats - Photo Tour: How a Panama Hat is Made

    Fascinating multi-page photo essay. Quite a process.

  39. Russell davies: copy and paste

    Very nice and easily-created rapid slideshow of a month’s worth of photos. Fab idea.

  40. Color Wars 2008 » Youngme / Nowme

    People submit a photo of themselves as a child, alongside a photo of themself today in the same pose. Some of these are awesome. Whole lives in two photos. Time travel. Hope.

  41. Lina Scheynius (MS Logan Photographic Agency)

    I like this photo and some of her others. I hope it’s this one; stupid, slow, infuriating Flash interface makes it hard to link to stuff. Who commissions this crap (the website, not the photos)?

    Handy guide to examples of rates for use of photography. (via Haddock)

  43. Tilt-shift miniature fakes - a photoset on Flickr
