Some news and interesting photography-related stuff I’ve stumbled across…

  • First of all, I know I haven’t posted much lately. Here are my excuses: end of Summer doldrums, work, and, uh, *mumble* new guitar.
  • I got an email from Zilok.com—we rent anything!—this morning about their renewed enthusiasm for renting lenses and camera equipment. Anyone rent here? How’d it go?
  • David Griffin, the photo director for National Geographic, gave a talk filled with amazing photos at TED about the power of photography to connect us to the world.
  • In case you were living under a rock, last month Flickr and Getty Images announced a partnership. You can read the official FAQ here. Basically, Getty is going to curate a collection from Flickr and invite those photographers to participate. When? “Soon.”
  • Mobile Computer Magazine ran an article describing how to recover images from corrupted memory cards. Could come in handy. Also, try this Google search for more information.
  • Life Before Death: Portraits of The Dying is an exhibition featuring people whose lives are coming to an end. It explores the experiences, hopes and fears of the terminally ill. All of them agreed to be photographed shortly before and immediately after death.
