Canon put everything onto the tapbe at CP+ expo in Japan so I really love their display. This well composed and aesthetic view is a good example to follow for all the event organisers especially in Hungary but not only on the field of photography.
The 65 year old James Nachtwey still goes to the most dangerous places on Earth. At the moment he is pressing his luck in Thailand. This weekend he has been shot by a bullet. The war photographer who has been the subject of the documentary bearing the same title is okay now however and he continued work after his wounds have been taken care of.
Photo editors at Hungarian news website Origo found a photo that seems to be retouched before publication on the website of one of the radio channels operated by BBC. A portrait of one of the musicians has been cropped out from a group shot and some details in the background have been cloned out. BBC claims it is not a faking of the photo because the photo is not used as a news image.
I disagree with the statement in the title but the recurring photographer layoffs and many comments suggest this. This time a journalist expressed his quite similar opinion.

UK publisher Johnston Press fires all their photogprahers working at their titles in England. Chicago Sun-Times had a sticky example followed by other companies – money…

Today is the official begining of winter. The search giant celebrates this with a new animated Google doodle.
A beind the scenes video about the making of a nature documentary that presents how a nature photographer works. In other words watch it how the documentary was made that shows the work of Bence Mate.
Another photographer shows some close up lion photos. He is not the first one who takes nature photos with remote control and probably he is not the last one as this technology becomes more and more popular.
Not so long ago I had a debate on my Hungarian blog about some comments stating that photography is not a profession – or at least many consider it that way. Not so long after it I ran into this funny comic strip. I think What the Duck nailed it again.
