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.

Less about photography and more about tech this one.
For last couple of years I’ve thought about playing around with ardunio tech, wanting to make something both technical and creative. In parallel I’ve also wondered about some day pushing something like this beyond the point of just messing around or doing for fun – i.e. launching into a wider audience by starting a company or similar.
Just come across this video which is really interesting on many of those aspects plus maker community, open source etc – and thought I’d share.

999u.com seems really interesting – will follow their video feed.
Wow – been a while since I posted something to my blog – oops sorry. Been busy doing lots of gigs and such. Not really posted much on that here but does a few bits on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dafowen/
I intend to start a 500px page too.
Anyway – back to the issue at hand – here’s another inspiration video for you. Shows it’s never too late to be / do whatever you want to do.

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 do like my inspirational videos and enjoy sharing them.Well here’s another.
I usually prefer videos which aren’t so targeted i.e. not about inspiration itself but about other people doing what they do, and doing it well sometimes in the face of adversity – but this is a direct one. However if you look at the creators other videos – you see there is a creative pattern there too.

Came across this interesting video about Forensic Photography on the Vimeo Staff picks feed. Thought I’d share.
Fascinating stuff – but don’t think it would be for me – I much prefer photographing people. The little challenges would inspire me though I think.
At the time it struck me as such a simple yet clever idea. Although there are of course logistics to consider like buying and controlling honey, different models etc – ultimately it’s simple and beautiful. The kind of thing where I think “Oh – wish I would have done that”.
I keep wanting to do more creative shoots but the impending organisation usually stops me or to be correct – I don’t event start. I just need to commit some time and just do it.
Recently came across a BTS video of the series and thought I’d blog it tagged as Inspiration.
