Photographing the Photographer

Outside_the_Tate_Modern

Recently in London, I saw an exhibition that examined photography's cultural uses from surveillance to eroticism.

After we had finished looking at the exhibition we decided to sit and eat at the cafe in the Tate Modern. While there, I noticed this guy whip out his DSLR, which happened to have a huge Telephoto Lens on it, he fired off a few shots using it, chimped them quickly, then fired off a couple more.

Of course I couldn't help myself and had to whip out my iPhone, then using the zoom feature, zoom in on him taking pictures outside an exhibition that examined Photography's role as a surveillance tool. Now is it just me or is this ironic, or a double negative even? A person photographing, being photographed outside a major exhibition on photography and surveillance?

Two Projects

Today, I have begun the ball rolling for two projects, an application for a PhD, and a show at the CCP. The show application, will focus on a body of work, I shot recently and may form a larger project, over time; one day a book I hope. The PhD, is at such an early developmental stage, I am reading a book that will help me decide where to go., the book is entitled, The Craft of Research. It has already proved to be a great help.

I bought a new camera

I was disappointed, that I missed, buying the Canon G10 in 2008, I hunted high and low for it in late 2009, to no avail. I purchased the G11 early this year and, I'm much happier anyway. Noise levels are reduced in this model, according to the specs and the banter on forums like dpreview.com

[From Canon Camera Museum | Camera Hall - Digital Compact Cameras]

Unfortunately due to the awful lighting conditions this time of year, I've not been able to shoot a great deal, to really get some results from it.

Interesting too, note that Canon, list it in the “Museum;” already?

iPhone/iPod remote

Using your ipod or iphone as a remote for certain devices is well known, but how about a remote control for your camera?

Using the software made by onOne, you can tether a Canon to a computer with the remote software installed, then using your iPod touch or iPhone, control all aspects of the hoot, and preview them 'live']

As gadgets go, this is really amazing, and yes I finally confess to being a gadget geek, but those of you who know me, knew that anyway.

Cameras... again?

I'm often asked what is the best camera to buy.. the answer used to be ...depends, on your perceived needs and uses,; no more.

The best camera to buy is one that you will carry EVERYWHERE, and use ALL THE TIME.

January 10, 2009: Sony's CES announcements include the Cyber-shot G3, which is claimed as the world's first Wi-Fi-enabled digicam capable of uploading photos and videos to web sites through any public hotspot.

The built-in web browser enables the camera to connect wirelessly to free or fee-based hotspots, as well as to secure and unsecured access points.

New Ipernity Set

We are fortunate to have a northerly aspect in our backyard. This means the light sweeps across the yard transforming the view at certain times of the day and an year into something that is a sight to behold. I often use is as test area for cameras, for kinda obvious reasons I guess. As a result I now have kicked off a new small idea.
