On Get the story behind the photograph news story (11 comments in total)

What a great idea! The Internet is a hybrid medium. I always welcome what photographers intended to achieve. I care about what I SEE and READ.

In reply to:

KodaChrome25: The negative commenters might, if they have not, visit the link above [Via: Prison Photography] for a fuller explanation of Mr. Tourlentes' work and why he creates it.

Thank you Mr. Britton for posting this. Much appreciated.

I think you've stated the problem eloquently. Attitude, in place of an open mind. Thanks.

Wye Photography: Producing photos like these the photographer should be inside, it's criminal! He's obviously stir crazy and uses an Olympus Penitentiary.

I see an odd likeness between Mr. Tourlentes' photographs and some of yours, particularly CHEPSTOW AT NIGHT.

I like them both, in my opinion. And I miss Tri-X. Wonderful film.

KodaChrome25: Eerie.. nice job.

I'd like to see a daylight, color series now with the golf courses adjacent to these same prisons.

Au contraire. In Lousiana you have

http://prisonviewgolf.com/

And there's a large golf course next to Stateville Prison in Illinois as well.

I believe that is how they get the drugs into the prisons.

On Hungarian law bans photos taken without seeking consent news story (324 comments in total)
In reply to:

armanius: This is rather disturbing. Take Hungary out of my list of "to visit" countries. Just imagine the scores of tourists that will be in violation of this law.

@qianp2k - so you took a photograph of her so that you'd really really never forget, right?

On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores news story (193 comments in total)

I've read <$50,000 is assets and >$1,000,000 in liabilities. And I've read between $50-$100 million in assets and $10-$50 million in liabilities. Not sure which is accurate.

On Chicago-based Calumet Photographic closes U.S. stores news story (193 comments in total)
In reply to:

fredphotog: It's kinda funny - a lot of you on here think that B&H is the only place to buy stuff (online), and they are not, so try to hold down the free advertising, please.
Also, Amazon IS having an effect on ALL retailers - that's why you see many places having contractual agreements between all retailers - the price you pay for something at B&H, Adorama, Wal-Mart, Best Buy is the same as the price at Amazon.
Calumet was always the highest price place around, but they also catered to a special market - large format - 4x5 or higher, Horseman, etc.
Soon almost all 'camera only' retailers will be gone, they cannot sustain profitability, but camera stores are not alone, I don't see many hi-fi stereo stores today, either.

I do all my research online. I buy from both Amazon and B&H. I don't buy much from brick and mortar. No reason to. Used to be they had knowledgeable employees. No so much anymore.

On Judge strikes down fine against drone photographer news story (127 comments in total)
In reply to:

jkoch2: Amazon will cease dreams of drone use for deliveries, considering the costs.

Battery life is short. Payload is limited. The fate of most drones is to get stuck in trees or power lines. Others descend who-knows-where after the navigation or GPS functions fail. Heavy vibration mars video shot with the smaller contraptions. They are not as easy to control as some people think. Any drone robust enough to deliver multiple parcels on a planned route would have to be as big, fuel hungry, maintenance draining, and noisy as a small helicopter.

jkoch2 - well aren't you mr. negative today!

In reply to:

E_Nielsen: By the way, I'd love to see some of the videos and photos that Mr. Pirker took with the drone over the University of Virginia. That is one of the most beautiful campuses I've ever seen.
DPReview: can you do a follow-up article?

I think it is more likely an attorney advised Pirker to pull down all such videos. They will probably reappear after the FAA appeal fails, if it fails.

@purelightglow - Thank you. It's the lighting that makes it look that way. The sunlight is bouncing off the New Water Tower behind me.

On Fujifilm X-E2 Review preview (283 comments in total)
In reply to:

Pippo50: Ho acquistato da poco la fuji xe1, la qualità delle immagine è molto buona anche a 3200 iso, la messa a fuoco è un po' lenta rispetto alla mia Nikon D90,
quando mi segnala il verde la messa a fuoco corrisponde , ho acquistato successivamente oltre al 18-55 il 55-200 una buona ottica, ma ho rilevato un po' di gioco nell' incastro dell'ottica nella sua sede, nel complesso sono soddisfatto.

per google... for the spanish challenged:

I recently purchased the fuji XE1 the quality of the picture is very good even at 3200 ISO, the focus is a bit 'slow compared to my nikon d90, when I noted the green focus is, then I bought the 18-55 over the 55-200 good optics but I found a little 'game in the' interlocking lens in place, overall I'm satisfied.

Michael Ma: Too bad they can't just share these images for people to look at. They're just rotting away. I hope someone at least scans them.

@flysurfer - Thank You!
