Review: The Fuji Instax SP-1 Printer | Ian MacDonald

Review:  The Fuji Instax SP-1 Printer | Ian MacDonald | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

In February I wrote an article about the Fuji Instax SHARE SP-1 Printer called “A photograph needs to be real:  The beauty of the Fuji Instax printer“. In that article I shared my thoughts about “growing up” in the era of digital photography and how, recently, I had come to realize the value of the printed photograph.  I discussed the impact an amazing printed photograph has on me, and also my desire to print more often. While thinking about some upcoming photography projects I was planning, and a photography trip I was about to take,  I realized how valuable the Fuji Instax SHARE SP-1 printer would be.  Thankfully it worked out that I could receive one before I left for my trip. I have to admit that I was like the little kid on Christmas day waiting for the courier to deliver the printer.  I will always be the guy who nerds out on new gear, but this time it had special meaning to me........

Photographing Women in a Sexual Manner: Are We All Guilty of Objectifying Women? | Fstoppers

Glamour photography, fine art nude photography, lingerie photography, swimwear photography — all of the above involve nudity. Sex sells — no explanation needed here. Or, at the very least, it will get you more likes on your page or your Instagram account. Is the sexiness in itself a problem? This is a recurrent debate. The #WomenNotObjects campaign, launched by Advertising Executive Madonna Badger, is calling on the advertising industry to put a stop to objectifying women for marketing purposes. As photographers, do we have a responsibility in this controversy?
Sander de Wilde's insight:

Interesting piece on sex, women and photography

The Cash Cow of Photography - Disphotic

The Cash Cow of Photography - Disphotic | a photographer's life | Scoop.it

I’ve been working for a while on compiling a list of photography grants, competitions and festivals that don’t charge or only charge small amounts for submissions. 


Via Mario Pires
Sander de Wilde's insight:

Exactly what I feel all the time. It's already damned difficult to find all these grants, and competitions, find the time to enter, and now you also have to find the money to enter. Even known sites like lensculture etc. Only photographers with time and money can make an entry and win. Is that fair? I don't know a lot of photographers with any of these!-)

Mario Pires's curator insight, September 16, 2015 10:24 AM

"I’ve also come to question more and more those situations where photographers are essentially expected to pay for access, or to pay someone to do their job. Portfolio reviews seem to me the most obvious and troubling example of this, a situation where we pay to jump the queue and go and see an editor or a curator who might be able to help us with work. In participating in this we are, in effect, paying a premium just to talk to a person whose job it already is to look at photography."

Five Reasons to Shoot Medium Format Film | Fstoppers

Let us venture back in time for a minute. 35mm film was always considered small. In fact, it was developed in the early 1900s as a means to make high-volume shooting and consumer photography possible. If you were a working professional, you were shooting at least medium format (6x4.5-6x19 cm) or even more likely, large format, like 4”x5” or 8x10”. The idea is that the larger the format, the more detail you can see. As we fast forward to digital, full-frame is the ideal format for many working pros in a variety of genres. While full-frame can be expensive and yields incredible image quality, there is something more.
