Psssst! F295 announces new Cameleon App coming soon for IOS 5+

From our friends at F295 comes Cameleon… it doesn’t want to be your novelty toy camera app of the week, but is looking for a serious long term relationship. It doesn’t rely on kitsch filters or novelty toy lenses, film packs, or in-app purchases, instead you’ll find an almost infinite amount of control over the picture’s most important parameters.

Like their Facebook page and watch for more info on this new App coming soon!

Ansel Adams work in iBooks though iTUNES

Well, it’s a far cry from Ansel Adams drying prints in a microwave!  But check it out!  Little Brown and Company has just announced four new Ansel Adams iBooks in the APP store! They are ANSEL ADAMS IN COLORANSEL ADAMS IN THE NATIONAL PARKS, and ANSEL ADAMS: 400 PHOTOGRAPHS. They are available to purchase for $9.99.

LOOKING AT ANSEL ADAMS also includes a Gallery feature that allows you to view the book’s 20 key images as though strolling through an exhibition, while secondary photographs, letters, postcards, and other visuals included within the text can be enlarged by tapping – and then closed, returning the reader to the text. They can be downloaded to your iPad with iBooks or on your computer via iTunes. Pretty cool! Here is the link.

 

   

 

 

 

Wayne Martin Belger on Oddities TV show on the Science Channel!

 

Yama Camera. Designed for the study of exodus and for the research of modern incarnations of historical iconic figures, this camera is named Yama, the Tibetan God of Death. In Tibetan Buddhism, Yama will see all of life and Karma is the “judge” that keeps the balance. Yama’s eyes are cast from bronze and silver with .9999% pure gold pinholes in each. A divider runs down the middle of the skull creating two separate cameras. A finished contact print mounted on copper is inserted in to the back of the camera to view what Yama saw in 3D.

Wayne Martin Belger, who was featured in a recent issue of photo technique (in an article written by Robert Hirsch) was just on the TV Show “Oddities” on the SCIENCE Channel with his Yama Skull Pinhole Camera. Check the website for info on a re-broadcast- the preview on the show’s homepage looks very neat! Watch or set your DVR for the full 30 minute episode called “Skull Camera Obscura” Saturday March 9th at 11:30pm.

April 12-14, Photographer’s Retreat at Peters Valley with Tillman Crane

We just ran an article in the current issue about the last Al Weber Rendezvous. You might not know about a similar event that takes place every April at Peter’s Valley. Writer, teacher and photographer Tillman Crane leads this one with Photo Department Head Andy Schmitt at Beautiful Peter’s Valley Craft Center in Layton New Jersey, and all photographers are welcome. It’s a great way to meet fellow photographers and get to talk about and make new photographs. Attendees will receive a copy of photo technique too!

I’m hopefully going to stop by for a day- I can’t wait to get out of the office!

Here are the details:

Fourth Annual Photographers’ Retreat

April 12 (Friday) – 14 (Sunday), 2013 Peters Valley Craft Center, Layton, New Jersey All Photographers Welcome! Cost: Room including Continental breakfast (Friday & Saturday night) $150.00

What is a Photographers’ Retreat? This one is an opportunity for photographers to meet together over an unstructured weekend to talk, share work, see what others are doing, make new photographs, and in general, “hang out” with people who speak the same language as you. How does it differ from a workshop or conference? There is no agenda, lectures or classroom teachers. At this retreat we all get to be students and we can all be teachers. This is an informal gathering and you may attend all or part of the weekend. There is no registration charge.

 

InkAID Video- Great “How to”

If you caught my article on digital printing on metals in the current issue, you know I am quite the fan of InkAID for hand-coating various substrates. The folks at InkAID just released a how-to video that might be of interest to you.
