In any family, herd, pack, pod, etc. there’s always someone to lean on. These young Bison calves (Bison bison bison) were having a good time in a Yellowstone National Park meadow. Clearly one was trying to lure the other into some activity other than resting by leaning on him/her. Here’s to family and those you can lean on. Have a great weekend!

The 28th episode of EXIF and Beyond has been released (duration 1 hour 9 min.) David Riecks a professional photographer and metadata expert is well known for his Controlled Vocabulary keyword database, has played an active role in developing industry metadata standards, and was a founding member of the Universal Photographic Digital Imaging Guidelines coalition (UPDIG) and serves as the Chief Technical Advisor to th
An often unspoken component of photography is image selection. How and why are certain photos chosen over others when reviewing results of a photo shoot? I’ve received questions on this in the past and D. Travis North (Self-Editing to Concentrate Your Workflow – Part 1) has asked me to share my insight to this topic with Kevin Oki (Editing and Workflow – Part 2) as part of a multiple-blogger series. There are t

With all the “free” information out there its time for you to determine if Chris Anderson is selling the Emperor’s new clothes or not. A conversation with Chris Anderson of Wired Magazine – Charlie Rose Chris Anderson o
In the lowland rainforests of Costa Rica it’s not an uncommon sight to see Chestnut-mandibled Toucans (Ramphastos swainsonii) and more times than not you’ll hear them long before you see them. They’re extremely loud and like to travel in small flocks. If you see one you’re bound to see a second. They are fascinating animals and as I have time I’ll dig up some audio recordings I made on
Continuing my thoughts from my previous post The Marginal Cost of Creativity & Free… One of the more interesting concepts that a creative can easily lose track of while reading “Free: The Future of a Radical Price” is before going through the decision process of how to employ “Free” tactics, one should assess if they’re aiming to take part in a market of abundance or scarcity.
Continuing my thoughts from my previous post Assumptions of “Free”… One of the strongest arguments made in Free is that in a competitive market (namely the Internet for sake of discussion) all prices are driven towards Zero or Near-Zero Marginal Cost. In economic terms I completely understand the principle, but as a creative I find the notion disconcerting on multiple fronts. Back in 1993/4 I was a research ass
