Monday Photo Roundup - Dec. 17
Basketball season is in full swing, and already, the problem is finding unique places to shoot from. For basketball and other court-sports, timing and catching emotion or expressions becomes key....
Gigapixel-sized panoramas are not new, but this one of Mount Everest is surely impressive. Zoom in for a sense of scale.
Since you obviously like blogs with links... here is a list of Photoshelter's best blogs of the year.
Once again, a non-attentive photog gets killed, this time by a train. A Union Pacific police officer made it pretty clear to me once (for a newspaper story) that if you are on the tracks anywhere other than a safe road crossing, you are trespassing. And most of the people killed by trains are trespassers. It happens more often than you would think, too. 23 fatal and 29 non-fatal trespasser/train incidents in Texas this year.
Dan Winters is one of the photographers I want to be when I grow up. Here is an LA Times piece with him.
Still Christmas shopping? There is still time...
One more basketball shot.. as with any sport, you are constantly dodging referees...
Have a great week!
