  • [twitter]presentation slides ‘n links http://cogdogblog.com/stuff/nv11[/twitter]\n\nFor some, photography seems hard.\n
  • [twitter]So what is a photographer? Only for pros to say “I Exist”?[/twitter]\n\nBut this guy looks happy. He is a “professional” and as a pro-- he has the Big Lens, he is on some exotivc location... as a pro his photography says “I Exist”\n
  • Bullshit.\n
  • The only thing about being a professional is that you get paid to do something everyone else can do if they choose. Think of the oldest profession in the world...\n
  • This photo is not be a quote/unquote professional. It makes a statement. It says I Exist.\n
  • She’s not a pro, but look at her expression. Do you question her assertion of existence?\n
  • This guy to exists... in pain. Maybe the pain is because he is not a Professional?\n
  • [twitter]NYT article on rise of paid “non-pro” photographers http://nyti.ms/e6mE3p[/twitter]\n\nSharon Pruitt’s photos on flickr garnered enough attention for her to make supplemental income; she started with a $99 camera\n
  • [twitter]Instagram creating new niche of photographers http://bit.ly/gF7mdA[/twitter]\n\nMobile photography is opening up creative opportunities for people who might not have considered themselves a photographer. Photos like these from my colleague Kim Flintoff are casual, in the moment, intimate.\n

  • [twitter]Photos shared should end up on http://flickr.com/photos/cogdogroo[/twitter]\n
  • On Making art in photos- it is going way beyond just pressing a button.\n
  • [twitter]Used slow shutter speed, layering to create six word story http://flic.kr/p/9FSfvk [/twitter]\n\nEasy to take a snapshot of this interesting photo gallery. But more went in to it, wanted to explore perhaps creating a scene ot story. With camera knowledge, I forced a slow exposure to make cars blur, and thought the arrangement of people made for layers. In post (I tossed 4 that did not work) I decided to make this a six word story.\n\nhttp://www.flickr.com/photos/cogdog/5702001885\n
  • I want to make a case that there is a complex relationship between ourselves and the world when we look through the lens, and consciously create something new in our mind’s eye.\n

  • “... a#er a vacation to Hawaii in 2006, Ms. Pruitt uploaded some photos — taken with a $99 Kodak digital camera — to the site Flickr. Since then, through her Flickr photos, she has received a contract with the stock-photography company Getty Images that gives her a monthly income when publishers or advertisers license the images.”flickr photos by Pink Sherbert Photography http://www.flickr.com/photos/pinksherbet// “For Photographers, the Image of a Shrinking Path” (New York Times, March 2010) (http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/business/media/30photogs.html)
  • “Also interesting is that the shots that people seem to post toInstagram – graffiti, flying pigeons, stuff around theneighborhood – are not the kind of photos you see onFacebook. Instagram has created a new niche – makingphotographers out of people who were not photographersbefore.”“More On Instagram (or why Facebook hasn’t won everything)”(http://thenextweb.com/location/2010/12/30/more-on-instagram-or-why-facebook-hasn%E2%80%99t-won-everything/)

  • “When it comes to the artistic value of images and proclamations of self importance, let me be very blunt: where there is no artist, there is no art. No matter how beautiful or powerful the feats of nature you photograph, if all you do is record them using photographic media without introducing your own sensibilities into the final product, they are not art! Your images should provide viewers with an experience they could not have had, and would never have seen or felt, if it were not for your sharing it with them.” cc licensed ( BY (http://guytal.com/wordpress/2011/05/dont-be-an-idiot/) Guy Tal, NC ND ) flickr photo by jónr:http://flickr.com/photos/jonragnarsson/280131282/

  • “It has changed me more as a father than it has as aphotographer. There are lots of difficult things yougo through as the parent of special needs child. Yetto see his photo showcased prominently onsomething I care deeply about, such as Flickr, and tosee him being praised by my friends and colleaguesgives me a sense of pride for my son. Also his imageshas been used for campaigns and posters for Autism.This photo has produced some redemptive andendearing qualities since I posted it online.”Kris Krug from “Story of a Portrait from flickr Homepage”(http://madaboutportraits.blogspot.com/2011/02/story-of-portrait-from-flickr-homepage.html) cc licensed ( BY ) flickr photo by kk: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kk/14443265/

  • The Lusitania
  • “Without a caption, without a context, without someidea about what the picture is a picture of, I can’tanswer. I simply cannot talk about the photograph asbeing true or false independently of beliefs about thepicture. A captionless photograph, stripped of allcontext, is virtually meaningless. I need to knowmore.And yet, this idea that photographs can be true orfalse independent of context is so ingrained in our The Lusitaniathinking that we are reluctant to part with it.”Errol Morris, “Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire”(http://opinionator.blogs.nytimes.com/2007/07/10/pictures-are-supposed-to-be-worth-a-thousand-words)

The DailyShoot is a simple daily routine to motivate and inspireyou to practice your photography, and share yourresults! It’s not a contest and there are no prizes. It’ssimply about encouraging you to pick up your cameraand make photographs.That’s it. There aren’t any other rules. You aren’t goingto get demerits if you miss a few days, nor will you getgold stars for doing every assignment. We’re just hereto help you with a little nudge every day.

  • “‘Forcing’ yourself to take a photo every daymeans you have your camera with you at alltimes and you start to look at objects andevents with a more artful eye.

  • “I remember walking around campus that day thinking about preparedness,looking for preparedness, wondering what preparedness was. No luck.That evening, though, I was thinking about how Leatherman’s were an example ofpreparedness, and then I remembered an old pocketknife my grandfather hadgiven me.I tried to think of how I could make it interesting. It needed… atmosphere. Itneeded… lighting. But just shooting it with a flash turned out bland, so I figuredout how to get the flash focused on a small area of the scene (it’s called a snoot).It’s clear, I think, that absent the constraint of needing to take a certain kind ofpicture that night, I probably wouldn’t have ever headed down the path whichresulted in the picture, nor would I have gained further practice in photography.”Galagon Wagon, (http://galagonwagon.com/2011/02/the-daily-shoot-and-creativity/) cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by Galagon Wagon: http://flickr.com/photos/galagonwagon/5429505007/

  • “Despite knowing that photographing water isdifficult, I walked around our campus a#er schoollooking for it; I should have been looking for liquids.Then I saw it.Beautiful, dense, thick buckets of mud. A blend ofearth and water and gas and everything mushedtogether. I have always loved mud, so with greatpleasure I snapped a round of shots. I am glad I didn’tgo with a more traditional glistening form of liquid,and I tried something a bit different.”Jabiz Raisdana, (http://intrepidflame.blogspot.com/2011/01/state-of-matter.html) cc licensed ( BY NC ) flickr photo by Intrepid Flame: http://flickr.com/photos/intrepidflame/5348740810/
