How often do you go through a photo blog’s archives? Not all that often I’ll bet… which means that there are a lot of articles that go unread by a lot of folks simply because they miss them when posted. Thinking about this, here are some great articles that I’ve bookmarked from a while ago. Some of these may be old news to some of y’all but who knows – there may be a missed gem in there!
- From the always-great “APhotoEditor” – an interview with Edward Weston’s wife and muse, Charis Wilson. A really wonderful piece, I am a *huge* Weston fan and this was a nice peek into his life from someone close to him.
- Hiroshima: The Lost Photographs – a powerful and moving account of a man discovering a suitcase full of mysterious photographs, documenting a firshand account of the Hiroshima tradgedy and aftermath.
- Ever wondered what a focal plane shutter looks like in super slo-mo? Check out this piece showing a D3 shutter release down to the millisecond, along with how it was done.
- What does it take to be great? – The inimitable David Ziser’s take on the age old question
That’s it for today, some more golden oldies coming soon.
