In education right now, it is not the end of the world. But we can see it from here. In Texas, they are talking about cuts to everything, even football if you can believe it. That’s how you know it’s the end of the world. If it is education, then they are looking to cut it back – cost wise, yet “provide the same high level of quality.” As P.T. Barnum once said (or didn’t) “There’s a sucker born every minute.” OK, enough soap boxing – let’s move on to the links.
1 – Thanks to PetaPixel for this video about an animal photography close encounter.
2 – PetaPixel was full of great stuff this last week or so, I love this shot. Cameras that are well used. Thank goodness our cameras are usually not in this bad of shape.
3 – And finally from PP again, an interesting mashup of computing power and photography – the “average” face of a woman in 40 countries. Not sure how they did this, but it is interesting.
4 – Former Guardian editor Tim Radford has 25 commandments for journalist. They are superb – my favortite: 10. So here is a rule. A story will only ever say one big thing. AND 20. English is better than Latin. You don’t exterminate, you kill. You don’t salivate, you drool. You don’t conflagrate, you burn.
5 – As a photojournalist, you can’t not know about the Afghan girl with the amazing green eyes. This is a short (52 min.) video about the search to find her again after the liberation of her country.
6 – The 10,000 Words Blog has a collection of new Valentines cards for journalists. Fun.
7 – Gizmodo is a tech blog, so it is interesting when they have an article about photography and sports photography at that – how to shoot football. Good stuff.
8 – In a related post, Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay quarterback owes photographer Scott Kelby a monopod.
9 – And again – football, Silber Studios; how to set your camera up for action.
11 – I have to agree in principle with The Innovative Educator, except that it is a Race To the Bottom.
12 – All media professionals need a web site and that means buying a domain name and getting web hosting.
Well, that’s all for today. Have a great week.
