Michelle Bates and more!

Toy Camera queen, Michelle Bates, was a recent speaker at TEDxRainier in Seattle and shared the video of her lecture that features a few of her images, plus ones by Thomas Michael Alleman, David Burnett, Teru Kuwayama, Pauline St Denis, Jennifer Shaw, James Balog, Nancy Siesel, Becky Ramotowski & Michael Kenna. Congrats Michelle!

Also wanted to share these magical long exposure fire fly images captured in Japan. Found on the site, Escape Into Life.

And finally, Jeff Harris’ amazing collection of thirteen years of self portraits, taken during times of great personal difficulty, and times of great joy. Inspirational to say the least.

Plus, there is still time to submit those camera photo photos to iSpy: Camera Phone Photography!
