Monday 27 June 2011

I left Beirut midnight on Saturday and didn’t arrive to Helsinki until midday Sunday, so was way too tired to start doing blog updates yesterday. Besides, wanted to see some friends. But here is June’s fourth instalment of Photojournalism Links…

I’m back from a two day flat hunting visit to London. I have really enjoyed the last few months in Brighton and going to miss the sea, but it makes more sense to live in the capital work-wise.. So gonna be moving yet again… hopefully for the last time in a while…Tired of packing and unpacking boxes… anyway, just to give you guys a heads up…from mid-March onwards your blog host will be London-based…Can’t wait… I guess now have to start planning some kind of a promo offensive to coincide with the move there…

World Press Photo of the Year 2010 reduced to marketing spiel?

“Photo settings: D3, AF-S NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4G, ISO 800, 1/40 at f/3.2″

I always thought the Bieber shot was 645, as the dimensions aren’t 6×4/35mm…(more like 6×7 actually), and also because I seem to remember seeing a video of her shooting 645…Anyway…Looking at a photograph such as this and then to be talking about the equipment, doesn’t quite feel right to me, whether it’s the Nikon blog or me doing it…So I’m not going to dwell on this…
