- You often hear about percentages, sometimes in statistics, like 75-percent of all statistics are made up, which often leaves you wondering about the accuracy of such numbers, but when it comes to photography, one percentage that is accurate is the 90-percent rule of lighting. It’s not just a rule, it’s a fundamental and principal of photography every photographer should comprehend, after all, lighting is the lifeblood of an image and without light, there is no photo.
“No one could have known that when a Tunisian fruit vendor set himself on fire in a public square, it would incite protests that would topple dictators and start a global wave of dissent,” the magazine writes. “In 2011, protesters didn’t just voice their complaints; they changed the world.”
Over the past year, “the protester” has voiced dissent against authoritarian leaders, first in Tunisia, and then in Egypt, Libya, Syria,Yemen and Bahrain. The protester in Spain and in Greece, which even had its own protest dog, struggled with a floundering economy. The protester voiced anger over possibly rigged elections, in countries as diverse as Russia and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the U.S., the Occupy Wall Street protester began demonstrating first in New York, and then in Washington, Chicago, and cities as small as Trenton, N.J.
In this year’s report, Time pieced together what all these revolutions have in common, why they protest, and what the legacy of the year’s protests will be. The magazine profiles a citizen journalist who started the live stream for Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park, and aprotester in Mexico who has had enough of the drug violence in that country.
The video of the making of the portrait pictures was released earlier this month, let’s thake a look at how these wonderful pictures were taken and explore what goes behind the minds of the photographers.
The guys over at Adobe posted a sneak peak video on the upcoming Photoshop CS6. The two-minute long video showcased the new Camera Raw functions, the new interface of CS6 and the rich cursor support. The interface now feature a choice of color themes apart from the original CS5 interface, three -stops of blacks and greys that is, much like the Lightroom and that’s pretty much it from the sneak preview and I do hope that Adobe will churn out a few more sneak peak videos for us to drool on soon.

Herre are this week’s top tweets -
- Instagram is rumoured to be close to launching for Windows Phone 7 (WP7), after sources told FastCompany that an app for the hugely popular photo sharing service may even be finished for the Microsoft operating system (OS) ahead of its planned arrival on Android.
19 Jan, Book Review: Joe McNally’s “Sketching Light” http://zite.to/z5DLSt
- From what I’ve seen of the Beta (minus the occasional crash) I really enjoy the improvements Adobe has made and will gladly plop down money to upgrade. I believe the improvements will give me better results faster. The increased speed in processing and moving between images from Library to Develop alone is worth the expense to me as time is money for me when it comes to play with pictures.
- The bottom line is that Snapseed, like its iOS predecessor, is a fun, useful tool that should help those who take photos for fun get even more enjoyment out of them. Unlike more full-featured editing suites, it won’t require you to dedicate time and effort to becoming not only a good photographer, but an expert on editing software as well.

13 Jan, Side by side: Nikon D4 Vs. Canon EOS 1D X – which should you buy? http://bit.ly/yrp4wz
- I’ve been intrigued by some of the chatter I’ve seen where people say the Nikon D4 trumps the Canon EOS-1D X, but in reality, I see that it comes down to maybe one or two features that people see (like the uncompressed HDMI output and/or the headphone jack) that seem to sway things toward the newNikon. But it again depends on your needs.
- And, if you look up and down the specs, it seems there are quite a few interesting things that people ignore or forget when comparing – specifically, Canon “wins” on the megapixels (18 ‘beats’ 16 right?), burst (fps), ISO is 2 stops better (without expansion), timecode, multi-exposures, dual axis leveling, and others. Nikon “wins” with timelapse support, HDMI output, headphone jack, in camera zoom, possibly autofocus (we’ll have to see on that!), and others.
What is the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day (WPPD)?
This is an international event created to promote and celebrate the art of pinhole photography.On this unique day, WPPD encourage people throughout the world
- to take some time off from the increasingly technological world we live in and to participate in the simple act of making a pinhole photograph.
- to share their visions and help spread the unusual beauty of this historical photographic process.
When is the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day?
The Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is held each year on the last Sunday in April.The next Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day is on Sunday, April 29, 2012.
Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day, Pinhole Photography, and… YOU!
Why Pinhole Photography?
A unique personal experience!
- Pinhole photography allows you to make a photograph that requires only a light-tight container (box, can,…) with a tiny hole in one side (as a camera) and any photo-sensitive surface in it. You can adapt an existing camera, or make the camera yourself . The experience of image-making becomes a little more special when created with your own hand-made camera; so, we provide different instructions in making your camera on WPPD Support page.
- With your own camera, infinite depth-of-field, skewed perspectives, and slower exposures, you may ultimately become more creative and more selective about what you choose to photograph. Magical things happen in pinhole photography…
Why Participate in the Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day?
A stimulating collective experience!
- WPPD encourage you to become involved, to not only experience that magic, but to share it with the rest of the world here on this web site.
What We Can Do To Help You Participate?
WPPD have set up this web site to help you
- make your camera,
- make your photo,
- join in the exhibition of others from around the world.
