Frankly, I don't care about the controversy.
When the results look THAT bad, why bother?
It seems almost like the controversy is sought, to make up for lack of inherent interest.
Like the photos from the photographer who installs a trapeze everywhere in the vicinity of landmarks and then shoots while doing a sommersault (I am making this up, but I am sure someone will pick up on the idea).
I would be willing to take (a certain amount of) risks or be provocative for the sake of art, but not for the sake of such boring and random results.

Great story, and it was pleasant to see that that first frame was apparently shot on stock from Gevaert in Belgium. My late father-in-law used to work there.
A bit of trivia with regard to the second photograph featured here (Hemingway is in the full article): listen to the song "Taro" by Alt-J.

RoelHendrickx: I would NOT want my every move to be recorded.
Seriously.
The Truman Show, anyone?
What amazes me most about all those evolutions, is that it is not some extraneous power (the proverbial Big Brother) that wants to control people 24/7 and annihilate their privacy, but that the lemmings are doing that themselves, and willingly.
Big Brother is watching you? No.
All those Little Brothers are allowing themselves to be watched.

Yes, you are right of course.
Him too.
But NOT ONLY him...

For me, "the best vacation photos possible" would be those that are original and reflect the way I experience a site, NOT a replica of photos made before by other people.

Mssimo: Can't wait for the "using fisheye for wedding photography" article.

Look here for fisheye shots (not all of them of course) at a wedding:

My two first Splice-slideshows are here:

Paris Streets:

Volleyball: http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p1046028174/h5854a698#h5854a698

I'm always interested in constructive feedback. Thanks.

I found the above slideshow a bit underwhelming (good music and some, though not all, good images; but the sequencing and transitions were sketchy at best).

Nevertheless, I took a look at the app. Glad I did.

I'm currently in the process of uploading my own very first efforts : a B&W slideshow of Paris images and a colour slideshow of volleyball action shots.

Stay tuned.
They will come in this gallery: http://roelh.zenfolio.com/p1046028174

Cheers

Took a look at your video/slideshow.
Pretty cool way of presenting the images.

The most optimistic/inspiring aspect of this story IMHO is that it was pro bono personal work that prompted the photographer to follow his own vision, and that is what made him stand out.

seems like we are almost back to the daguerrotype: photography is coming full circle.

Unreal, dude!!!

I can see the potential here:
a remake of "Jaws" from the POV of the monster !

Excellent samples that illustrate obvious guidelines.

In reply to:

40daystogo: That's an outrageously high proportion of "keepers" from one 36-roll of Kodachrome. Shows the quality of Steve McCurry's ability to see -- although, I guess, using the last roll of Kodachrome might have heightened the sense of gravity before clicking the button.

OK, pre-shooting with digital explains why he gets settings spot-on for every exposure and it has undoubtedly helped with composition. So yes, that makes it a little less magical.
But still : amazing use of the exact moments in a few of those images.

Direct link | Posted on Feb 10, 2013 at 14:30 UTC

Let me add one more thing: the roll yields at least one image that is truly fabulous; that the portraits are excellent is to be expected from McCurry, but that one with bridge-like constructions, and the persons and shadows and chandeliers and ...., is breathtaking.

a lot of good shots from one roll of film: that is probably the most amazing aspect of this experiment.

I think that watching "Minority Report" will definitely give somebody else another great idea.
Helicopter Cams are so 201X!
I want my own personal thing that moves on its own to crawl through a living environment and scans people's irises!
