Is Photography A Performance-based or Post-processed Medium?

In thinking about the future of photography, I’ve been wondering how the craft will evolve as post-processing tools become ever more powerful and our skills at conveying emotion through the use of color, tone and contrast match the sophistication and subtlety of the available technology. I found some interesting parallels between photography and music in […]

A Three-Party Publishing Ecosystem

I came across this little gem embedded within a longer post about new Yahoo!

When I opened the box to assemble my new Olympus E-5, I noticed the battery and charger is gray, not the traditional black. Since I’ve amassed a collection of the standard black batteries over the years, I wanted to find out what was behind the switch. I contacted Rich Pelkowski, Product Manager for the Olympus […]
