“Road movies are what brought me to the cinema,” Brazilian-born director Walter Salles said in his introduction to his film adaptation of Jack Kerouac ‘s generation defining novel, On the Road. That being the case, he has had the luck of bringing the most iconic road novel perhaps of all time (with exception of Cervantes’ Don Quixote ) to the big screen. First published in 1957, On the Road seemed unfilmable due to its wild content then considered too taboo for American audiences. Francis Ford Coppola snapped up its rights in 1979 and hoped to bring it to the screen himself, filming in black and white on 16mm.

…and how can you spot one? The Fauxtographer/Photographer debate has been going strong for a while now in photography circles. Everyone has a different opinion of what makes someone a ‘professional’ and what makes one a ‘hobbyist’. By definition, a ‘professional’ is someone who earns a living, or at least a portion of their income, from their chosen career. Most people would also agree that a professional has established a legal business in their chosen line of work, or is employed by a legal business. A professional also pays taxes on the income made from their work.
As a fan of the Mac I find it hard to avoid news of the constant sniping, litigation and general blazing that is going on between Apple and Samsung over alleged patent infringements, new developments, new products and amazing improvements to existing iDevices. However, in a way, I see the Apple vs Samsung barney as a good thing, with the eventual outcomes arriving as radical new devices and/or useful advances in many products. So, it is in this environment that I am reviewing a newcomer from the Dark Side! Move over Microsoft, there’s a new boy in town. As Samsung says: This is the first Galaxy Camera, featuring Wi-Fi connectivity and Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) software.
Although this problem may not happen to you exactly, I think a similar-to-some-extent scenario happens to every photographer at least once. You send client an e-mail about gallery or slideshow being ready to view and you anxiously await the e-mail response filled with joy and tears at the amazing session and how much the client loved it. But instead, you get an e-mail that is not happy.
Over the last few months a number of respected photographers have released some quality e-books and e-resources for photographers. We thought it might be a great time to do a wrap up of some of the e-books that we recommend the most here at DPS. Here they are, listed in no particular order of quality or preference as each will meet different photographers needs in different ways.
You may not know it from your friend's Facebook updates, but there's more to iPhone photography than Hipstamatic and Instagram. In fact, you can take a class in it. For the past year and a half, photographer Dan Burkholder has been travelling the country teaching iPhone users how to turn their phones into a full-service darkroom. Taking an image like this:
If there was a prize that could be given out to the most creative father, I'd hope that it was awarded to Jason Lee. A wedding photographer by day, he's used to capturing some of the most important moments in a couple's lives. As a longtime fan of Jason's photos on Flickr however, I think the real magic happens when he turns the camera onto his daughters.
share We’ve just finished our four part series on low light photography. Low light photography is something that we all must deal with as photographers. Whether you’re taking photos with a point and shoot during an evening out, shooting a wedding party or capturing a landscape at dusk it’s important to understand the basics of shooting with low light.
The folks at Hubble just released this fantastic image ! OK, duh, that’s Saturn. But you can see four moons crossing its face at the same time!
Stonehenge is impressive, but pales in comparison to the massive stone pillars Mother Nature gave us. The real stories of how they came to be are as fascinating as the legends that people use to explain unusual rock formations. England: Brimham Rocks The Brimham Rocks near Nidderdale, Yorkshire Dales, England are said to have been carved by druids, but they date back to around 320 million years ago when the Yorkshire area formed from sand and other materials washed down from Norway and Scotland, leaving an area known as the Millstone Grit. Later glaciers carved the land down, leaving the strangely-shaped stones exposed, in the period from roughly 73,000 BC to 10,000 BC. The rocks now stand at a little less than 30 meters tall.
Some of them are made by nature and some by people, but these holes in the world never seize to amaze. 1. Udachnaya pipe Udachnaya pipe is a diamond deposit in the Daldyn-Alakit kimberlite field in Sakha Republic, Russia.It is an open-pit mine, and is located just outside the Arctic circle.
