Realised I’ve not posted on my blog in over a year! (Well a year yesterday)
Of late I post my photos to Instagram.
And have developed my main website to more of a portfolio site.
So will continue to use this blog just to post items of interest – mostly found elsewhere.
So here’s one – a video trailer for a Music Photography book by Neal Preston.
I first found out about him from a Matthias HTBARP podcast.
Have ordered the book 🙂
Something super interesting/geeky looking on a Nikon Rumors post.
Custom profiles for Picture Control settings.
I think you can upload them to your camera using the Picture Control Utility.
It includes profiles for some classic film stock as well as modern cameras.
A friend used custom profiles to boost his blue skies on Ibiza outdoor clubbing photos on his 5D.
Alas I can’t try them yet as I just dropped my camera off for a service today.
Come across this and thought I’d share.
Seems Chris Hondros was injured/killed in the same incident as Tim Hetherington. Wiki says he was a finalist for a Pulitzer on two occasions.
Just the trailer so far – so hard to tell how good/bad it might be.

Came across another fairly inspirational video – the post title is a line from it.
Take a look.
Like the fact he treated and shot school sports teams like full on pros!

Used to watch New York Times [Lens] videos on a regular basis. But as they’re no longer on Vimeo it seems I’ve missed them – but they’re on their own website.
Here’s a really interesting one I thought I’d share – on James Dean and Dennis Stock – the photographer who took “the” photo of James Dean – the one of him n Times Square in the rain. Rather than a quick snap – seems that there was a two month run up to it. Would be great to do something like this! If only I had the time. Maybe I should make it happen rather than hoping always.
I tried to embedd the video but as wordpress.com doesn’t allow iFrames – here’s a standard link:
Been a while since I blogged anything – mostly as I’ve not had the time – covered (photography) a couple of London Music festivals and have other editing I’m way behind on. Will likely post some of these in time.
During my lunchtimes I often read photography (or related) blogs, news feeds and such like which sometimes include videos. One that’s not usually photography related (iD Magazine YouTube upload feed) has recently featured a video which covers photography and fashion of the 90s Grunge scene. Thought I’d share.
It’s part of a series on UK youth culture:

I’m loving my inspirational videos at the moment. I tend to be going for two kinds really – the “just go out there and do it” type of video and also those showing something so simple and basic yet done so well and beautifully – and this is the latter of those two.
Sure we’ve all seen lots of surfing photos and videos – but this is a video about Ray Collins primarily just photographing waves. Something so simple and basic in concept – yet done so well and beautifully. Suggests any of us could go do something similar with a topic that we usually just take for granted.
Many of his pictures remind me of solid lumps of glass or obsidian.
