jcmarfilph: none of the above..
Those silly ideas of attaching lens to a mediocre camera phone with sensor smaller than a pinhead are worthless.

Also, attaching a lens bigger than a phone itself defeats the purpose of mobility.

I'd rather see more travelzoom or bridge cam with WIFI or 4G capabilities than make my self look like a dork with a slippery brick in one hand and another hand holding the lens.

It's not often that I agree totally with an opinion on these comments.
But I do now. All of this (except for a real camera but with connectivity) looks just silly.
And there is no way that it will yield GOOD results.
"Interesting" (as in "weird"): yes maybe. But GOOD, no.

I like his photography.
Good, simple concepts and well executed.
No overdone PP but just enough.

That video was interesting.
The app is more of the same.
(But I must admit that Koloid is corny fun.)

That first is mildly interesting, but the animation is necessary to make the image interesting...
That second just makes me dizzy. Help, I want to get off this ride!!

jm67: From the viewpoint of a wedding photographer...
Yes I know it doesn't quite fit all five but #s two and four do so frequently.

'It will mean great exposure for you.'
--No, it won't. I'm on the wrong side of the camera to be exposed.
'If you don't want to do it for free, I know other photographers who will.'
--Then why are you asking me?
'We could just find a stock photo if you're not interested.'
--I can recommend a few companies if you'd like to save time.
'My cousin has a DSLR and I think I can get him to do it if you don't want to.
(My personal favourite, the cousin, aunt, uncle and I get this alot),
--You'll cry when you see the results so I recommend hydrating first.
'If all goes well, it could lead to paid opportunities with our company.'
--I love betting on "maybes" and "ifs". Sign me up. I mean, pass.

For a wedding photographer, the last one would me:
"I'm sure to divorce at some point and then maybe I'll pay you to shoot my next wedding."

Ventil: My favorite, although not a quote asking images for free:

"Wow, great cameras, sure they have to take good pictures!"
-- "Yes, of course, we've taught them everything we know..."

People seldom talk to a painter like this:
"Wow, great brushes - they must make splendid paintings"

In reply to:

SemperAugustus: The new loaded word is "donation"... amounts to the same with the same arguments:
- Good exposure, good marketing
- Networking, etc.
My answer is "not interested", if you donate or work for free you are marketing yourself as cheap/no cost resource. Your work will be appreciated as such.

I do not agree, at least not totally.
See my later reply to the article itself.
I don't think using those conditions "cheapens" my work.
And I can tell it is highly appreciated.

I do the occasional pro bono job, but under my conditions:
* only for good causes that I support and know don't have the budget
* editorial and creative control
* no fees, but expenses reimbursed
* copyright remains with me: only a licence for a well specified use that is exclusively for the good cause (all commercial use excluded)
* guaranteed exposure (no images for internal use : they must be used for specified publicly distributed ends (book, brochure, exhibition, ...)

Approached like that, pro bono work can open doors and be a win-win.

RoelHendrickx: Corny but fun...

I did give it a try.
Quick pic of my daughter here:
Using this thing has a kind of "craft" feeling to it (which is a strange thing to say with anything digital, I guess), and it is also a bit random (like Hipstamatic) but in a fun way.
I'll leave it on the Phone for a while I think...
