Here in the U.S., we have a big holiday coming up this week: Thanksgiving. Serendipitously, this holiday also happens to fall when a few neat things are happening around the community, and what better time is there to recognize some folks and to give thanks of our own? No time like the present!
I realize that I’m a little late to this, but photographer João Almeida has created a wonderful set of film emulation presets for darktable that he uses in his own workflow for personal and commisioned work. Even more wonderful is that he has graciously released them for everyone to use.
The Journal of the Photographic Society is the journal for one of oldest photographic societies in the world: the Royal Photographic Society. First published in 1853, the RPS Journal is the oldest photographic periodical in the world (just edging out the British Journal of Photography by about a year).
So you can imagine my doubt when confronted with an email about using some material from pixls.us for their latest issue…
Anyone that has spent any time around me would realize that I’m particularly fond of portraits. From the wonderful works of Martin Schoeller to the sublime Dan Winters, I am simply fascinated by a well executed portrait. So I thought it would be fun to take a look at some selections from the “father” of environmental portraits - Arnold Newman.
I’ve been writing about high-quality photography workflows on my blog. However, I felt the community could use a good website dedicated to F/OSS photography that wasn’t just about me. (Well, mostly).
We have all of these amazing projects creating fantastic software, and we could use a place to help everyone realize their full potential (theirs and the software).
I am working hard to get various parts of the site up and running (as well as writing and editing new content).
I finally got an About Page setup to give you a little more information about the site and who’s involved.
I just got the basic framework for the blog posts set up. You can follow along the blog here to keep up with the site status.
I’ll be updating there as I build out more of the site. If you would like to contribute in any way, please feel free to reach out to me (I promise I don’t bite).
A list of various F/OSS projects related to photography and digital imaging.
