Photography Links March 2014

My monthly list of photography links to articles, photo essays and reviews I find interesting, inspiring and worthwhile to read.

– Zack Arias: DEDPXL Dispatch Dubai
“Keep working. Keep doing what you are doing. Keep transmitting signal even when you think no one is listening. Keep getting better. Be driven even when it’s dark. Stop the pity parties and get to work.”

– Steven Pressfield: Writing Wednesdays – Keep gnawing
“What happens to us if we don’t pursue our dreams?”

– Luminous Landscape: What Matters
“It doesn’t matter what camera you have if your photography has nothing worthwhile to say.”

– David DuChemin: Chains All The Same
“We keep buying stuff we don’t need, purchasing against our future, in hopes it’ll get better. It usually doesn’t. And still we have too much stuff.”

– David DuChemin: Fill Your Canvas
“Fear is a junk artist. It creates something of our lives that we never intended, molds us into the same mediocre shape as everyone else. And like any artist, it asks What if… with alarming frequency.”

– Smogranch, Daniel Milnor: Dosage
“The truly elite in my mind are NOT sharing every moment of every day and begging for attention. The elite are making work; real, honest, deep work and they are waiting like a visual virus. They are waiting for that work to be complete. They are editing, they are sequencing and they are packaging. They are waiting for the moment when humanity, NOT just the choir, is ready is receive and then they make their move.”

– Smogranch, Daniel Milnor: The Social Photographer
“Instead of reading or talking or browsing the world they find themselves sitting at a dinner party reaching for their phone to check their Facebook page. They mumble through their conversation. They seem distracted, agitated because they can’t focus on ANYTHING. Their thumb moves up and down, trained to flick at content like a nervous tick. Their vocabulary suddenly takes on things like “wow,” “amazing” and “unreal”, words now firmly planted in their brains from their social feedback, words used to deflect conversation because they weren’t really paying attention in the first place.”

– Smogranch, Daniel Milnor: The Pipeline
“Over the past few weeks I’ve been contacted by several folks who are searching for greatness, but they have all realized that scouring the web for good photography isn’t helping them. The pipeline is putting so much content in front of them it is not possible for them to consume it all.”

– Smogranch, Daniel Milnor: Eighty-One Above the Fold: A Love Letter to Journalism

– Smogranch, Daniel Milnor: I Like Old
“68,484. The number of views for Sebastiao Salgado’s TED Talk. Can you guess what these numbers correspond to? 305,482 – 363,366 – 402,343 – 652,118. Yep, you guessed it. Camera reviews.”
