#756. Monday Post (13 Aug 2018) – Messing with attribution

It’s bad. It’s a problem for many photographers who have found their work used on the web without permission or credit. Something in the proliferation of ‘free’ data has somehow spread the idea that it was OK to take something given freely and use it for personal profit. Well, just

#754. The Monday Post – refusing to let go

There was a mild flutter in the DS hen coop last week. Seems film director’s Wim Wenders’ opinion that phone photography had sucked the life out of “real” photography, leaving it for dead, yet here he was seeking new nomenclature to describe this art.   That said, he did admit

#753. The Monday (Guest) Post – Kirk Tuck’s take on Nikon’s mirrorless plans

Why I will absolutely rush to buy the new mirrorless Nikon but will probably never take possession of one…   Breathlessly waiting for the big announcement of Nikon’s mirrorless delivery date. I can’t eat, I can’t sleep, I can’t even drink coffee because I’m so excited to finally be able

#745. (Monday Post 02 July 2018) – Further Adventures in La La Land

It was a fairly normal day.   I continued to argue* with the good bad folks who host (sic) the photos on my website, whilst preparing some event coverage quotes for a couple of perspective clients   *apparently that my photos no longer display because they rolled out an improved

#732. Monday Post (4 June 2018) – Confessions of a repentent slut

  First of all I have to confess, I was a slut. A bokeh slut. See post https://www.dearsusan.net/2017/05/20/596-bokeh-slut/ To the question: but why? my first 2 answers were: “because my mum taught me not to use the word w***e”, and “because I can”. A self-professed, unapologetic slut.     How

#686. Monday Post (8 Jan 2018) – Peak photo?

  The pundits continue to wrangle; have we reached Peak Oil, or passed it. Does it matter any more as new deposits continue to be found and slowly declining demand keeps the price around $60/bbl?   Consider that the world’s bovines fart and belch infinitely more in the way of

#681. Monday Post (25 Dec 2017) – Eclecticism

  I sense that there are a few readers that have been with us throughout 2017, tasted our erudition, benefitted from our skills, learned from our experiences, tutted at our photographic expenditure and excess, yawned at our willingness to repeat ourselves, shaken their heads as we’ve tried, tested and fawned

  December. Christmas is already the elephant in the room and as I’ve been out of the DearSusan loop for a couple of weeks road tripping, my thoughts turn to the penultimate Monday Post and what I can contribute.     A quick check to ensure my facilities remain largely
