Around The Web: Tuesday 10/05/2010
In case you don't have much time to keep up with the news, here are a couple of the great postings from around the web published today.
- Pop Photo has a feature on photographer David Becker—he's got a fascination with eyes and photographing them. Becker created his own ring flash and is able to capture details and complexity to the human eye that we don't typically notice. I'm a personal fan of the Orbis.
- Todd Owyoung shares with us a tutorial on how to sharpen in Lightroom for professional looking photographs. Todd's concert photography results are simply amazing. For all the students out there, you may want to check out some of Todd's other tutorials.
- Luminous Landscape has a feature on how he has been able to shoot certain things with medium format despite others saying that it wasn't possible. Examples are street photography and macro images.
- Like LEGOS®? Well, LeicaRumors via Mocpages via Petapixel has a story on a Leica M8 created out of the much-loved building blocks and with a 3MP sensor. It's a photogeek's dream; now if only they could put a Noctilux on it.
- F Stoppers has a very special video showing how America's favorite sports games are broadcasted into our television at home. Sports fanatics may be really interested in this. Those interested in how these cameras are operated will learn a thing or two as well.
- The Manfrotto School of Xcellence is hosting a free webinar on, “Handy Tips to Improve Your Photography. From Automatic to Almost Manual.” The Webinar will take place on Friday, October 8th from 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT. The host is Italian photographer Marc De Tollenaere. You can register here.
