Here we are at Tuesday again, and it’s time for our roundup! What’s been going on in photo news? Let’s take a look….
1. Famed architectural photographer Julius Shulman dies at 98. Some really stunning images have surfaced this week as a result. See a selection here.
I’d live here, surely. Where did he put the tripod?
2. Interesting photo world news; three prominent nature photographers cede from major stock agencies and create their own– Wild Photography. Included in the bunch is a favorite of mine- National Geographic shooter David Doubilet.
Read about their new business plan here. And yes- these are two nudibranches, as well as a shot of David at work.
3. Chris Bickford’s images of surfing on The New York Times Lens Blog. (His first time shooting in water!)
4. Also on the Lens Blog- a young David Burnett captures moon spectators in 1969. Tell me you’ve gone this week without seeing some awesome anniversary shots of the moon landing, and I won’t believe you.
5. Just for fun: check out some strangely beautiful liquid suspension still lifes here.
6. They had a tripod, but something went wrong with the flash:
Washington, D.C., circa 1919. “Mrs. John Nolan, children’s party.” A good if eerie example of what happens when the shutter opens before the flash goes off. National Photo Company Collection glass negative.
Have a great week!
