Wise words on pet portraiture...

The Five Biggest Photographers on the Internet...

Photo District News (PDN) have an interesting article where they attempted to identify 5 photographers that they think dominate the 5 most popular photographic platforms; those being blogging, Flickr, YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

They also tried to ensure that they were photographers only known for their online work.

Very interesting read and don't forget to look at the comments as well... personally I think the list is a little short at five and heavens know why facebook and twitter are considered to be photographic platforms..!......

.....and they should have looked at smugmug as well, for sure we would have got a mention.. ;-)

Anyway, take a look at the article here on the PDN website.

Clay Enos and Street Portraiture...

Above is an interesting video which would have come in handy while preparing for the 'People' theme recently.

Here we have Clay Enos showing how he sets up a street studio then invites passers by to have their picture taken.

You can see more of his work on his website here.

He's also the photographer behind all the images for the film 'Watchmen' by the way.
