Here are some things I’ve run across this week that I found interesting. It’s an eclectic mix, so take a look and see what you think…
Autochrome’s Enduring Allure— New York Times Lens blog piece about this ancient color photography technique. The pictures are really cool and the article is well done.
45 Awesome Examples of Abstract Photography — This is a German web site, but you don’t have to read German to enjoy these beautiful images. Worth a look.
Photoshop Technique: Digital Airbrush from Brian Auer at Epic Edits. This is a detailed tutorial that will show you a way to really soften and control some facial skin retouching without going completely overboard. Excellent.
Oil spill photo gallery at The Denver Post’s photo blog. This is a really nice, really awful photo gallery of the current state of my very own worldwide environmental disaster, just south of New Orleans. This is killing us.
40 Provoking Shots of Urban Decay at PSDFAN—There are some nice images here…some a little too heavy on the HDR for my taste. But worth looking at. But what I DON’T LIKE is no photo credits anywhere for the shooters….what’s up with that?!
Corn Lillies article at 25 Years in Yosemite: A Photographer’s Journal by landscape/nature photographer Michael Frye. These are beautiful images, particularly the frost photograph. Check it out!
Designing a Flexible, Powerful Workflow at In the Moment: A Landscape Photography Blog (this is Michael Frye’s OTHER blog). I was poking around the Corn Lillies page above when I stumbled into this great post. We all could examine our digital workflow and rethink how we work…always worth a few moments’ reflection. Great images in this post too!
This is Why Yosemite is a Photographer’s Nirvana at Lightstalking
More great Yosemite photos, 26 of ‘em, to be exact. Nice aggregation of Flickr images. Take a look and get inspired!
