There is a wonderful visual and visceral joy to abseiling. Congratulations to Ben Von Wong for doing what is essentially a fashion/lifestyle shoot by incorporating an urban set and an extreme sport sensation. I love the energy and enthusiasm. Bravo!

Love Mathieu's passion and energy. And, he took some lovely shots.

Camera5: Last close-up of Jennifer Lawrence's face is a wonderful shot. Emotionally compelling and transcends the fame to unlock something of the sitter as a human being, a good strong photograph! One of the best ever taken of her. Stylistically it subtly references the 60's and there is something of the sixties ingenue about Lawrence.

Hi Clay, I am glad my comments reached you. Stick to your guns and be bold with your ideas. You produced a good shoot in a tiny time window. Jennifer Lawrence and the kid interacted very sweetly and naturally, that was a bonus. Platon was telling me how he had just moments with dozens of heads of state at a UN shoot for The New Yorker, and he also came back with great portraits. Constraints - including time - can be creative fuel, Sam always used to say that.

Clay Cook is an ambitious young photographer and his hard work placed Jennifer Lawrence in front of his camera. There is something I learned from years of watching young aspiring photographers show their portfolios to a master photographer, encouragement has more power than negativity ever will. Articulate your observations and encourage.

sapple: First thing I learned in my copyright class is your work is already protected by copyright without registering and has been for decades. This is a service that gives peace of mind to people that do not understand the law.

Gather up your best images and publish. A publication puts you in a very strong position. People will steal good images - always have and always will. Once there's a copy lying in the Library of Congress with your name on it, you will have a much easier time suing.

On article The photography of Stanley Kubrick as a teenager (43 comments in total)

Kubrick always was a master of stills. Seen many of these before, they are masterful and impart timeless gravitas, the X-factor of emotional conviction that is soaked into all good art.

Magical. You ventured into the wild, had a great experience, did no harm and came back with inspiring photographs. Bravo.

Wonderful to see DPR featuring masters at work. For another master class in lighting see the shoot that Sam Haskins did for Harper's Bazaar in Sydney a few weeks after his 80th birthday in December 2006.

Camera5: Guys, in future, please use logarithmic scales and make the use of colour more contrasty on your charts.

Good chart design is a 'numbers discussion' amongst other things, and as I said, scaling is not the only problem here.

I am a DPR fan. These guys do a great job but data design is my field and this chart is just a clumsy silly design. It might be a bit of fun but the data is interesting and this rendition does the interpretation no favours. The scaling error is not the only problem with this design.

What a charming video. Just human and lovely. Bravo.

vscd: It's not about exchange rate... it's the normal business to increase the fee if all dogs are on the dog leash. ;(

Creative Suite is just software. Things change. Remember when Microsoft was going to annihilate Apple? Let's just watch and see what happens when the new iOS versions of Affinity are running on iPad Pro. Procreate on iPad Pro has already pulled plenty of digital illustrators away from Photoshop on their laptops.

Adobe need to keep an eye on Affinity

Jack Dykinga is an excellent colourist and a patient craftsman. The 'Resource Travel' article also reveals a warm and unembittered maturity in the man. I always like hearing master photographers reiterate the lesson of careful planning superimposed with reactive serendipity leading to strong work.

Good work and in many instances all the better for the constraint of using only one lens. Bravo.
