85 Great Photography Blogs, Galleries and Sites You Can't Afford to Miss WOW! I love DIYP readers! A week ago I asked DIYP readers to introduce yourselves by sharing your photography with the rest of DIYP readers. A total of 85 (that’s almost triple my age) photographers and bloggers accepted the challenge and stepped up to share their blog, gallery, site or flickr stream. I was happy to get familiar with 85 photography sites, blogs and galleries. During the course of the week, I have paid a visit to each of the sites and blogs, learning a bit about each of you.

What You Need to Know About Photo Stream If you have a new enough iPhone or iPad, you can now edit photos on the device. Photo Charlie Sorrel iOS 5 is here, and with it iCloud. ICloud is the biggest step yet towards cutting the cord with desktop computers, and it arguably does away with the old-fashioned idea of files and folders. One of the best parts of iCloud is Photo Stream which, in combination with the new Photos app, lets you forget about the computer completely.

seeking selection and good prices... in London Tsingtao says: Just near the junction of Brick Lane and Whitechapel High Street (officially, Brick Lane's called Osborn street at this point if you look on google maps) there's a small shop selling batteries, blank CDs, digital media - and film. Cheaper than the high street. Not sure what they have in stock, but they difinately did have Ilford and Fuji products when I was in there about 6 months back. i think they shut early on a saturday.

It’s entirely conceivable that life’s splendor surrounds us all, It’s entirely conceivable that life’s splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away Underwater digital photographs by Mark Mawson Title: Kafka via Blind Pony "It's entirely conceivable that life's splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away. But there it lies—not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If we call it by the right word, by the right name, then it comes. This is the essence of magic, which doesn't create but calls."

120 film in London England, where to buy? - Medium Format Forum Edward Burlew , May 05, 2008; 07:27 a.m. I am traveling to London and I need to purchase several dozen rolls of 120 when I arrive. I am staying near Hyde Park and would appreciate knowing of a vendor near by. As an aside Do I have to worry about being mugged? If so I would take the old Hasselblad not the new 203fe.

In total, the swarms of butterflies will travel to 100 different homes, hopefully landing in all seven continents.

Photography resources in London: the cheap lab near Shoreditch High Street – UPDATED I still shoot film because I love it, but it so damn expensive to get it developed and scanned in London! I’m trying to force kindly convince my lovely uncles to team up and buy me a decent flatbed film scanner as a graduation present, but till then I’m pretty much dependent on photography labs. I have to thank Ruvan (see this post to read about him) if I haven’t gone bankrupt while snapping freely with my Olympus Mju, because he showed me this lovely (and cheap!) 99 Extreme Examples of Bokeh Photography The quality of the blur has come to be known as “bokeh”. Bokeh in terms of photography referring the area in the photo which are out of focus light to increase beautiful and dramatic image. The origin of the term is from the Japanese word “romaji” (english characters) is spelled “boke” (pronounced bo-keh) and which means “fuzzy”. For good Bokeh, ideally points and lines would blur smoothly as they fell out of focus, in the manner, for example, of a smooth Gaussian blurring. When it comes to inspiration then there is no limitation on resources. Photography is one of the key sources of inspiration for some of our past work.
