Mike Ware

Mike Ware's website is great resource for those interested in the 'old' alternative photo processes. Argyrotypes, cyanotype, palladium and a lot more. His gallery of photographs is beautiful, and he also has pages dedicated to the history of alternate processes, some essays, and instructions and technical information.

In the mood for some shopping? The Photography page at art.net.au is a good source for the purchase of contemporary Australian photography. It has a good mix of relative unknowns and established artists, such as Polixena Papapetrou, Robyn Stacey (pictured here) and Anne Ferren, to name but a few.

Happy shopping!

Camera Toss

Now for something completely different. The camera toss craze has hit big time. Ryan Gallager's gallery of images is a great series, and his blog can be found here. The flickr group, where anyone can contribute is here. Camera Toss is exactly what it sounds like. Set the timer on your camera, make sure it's on a long exposure (small aperture and/or low light) and, yes, toss it into the air. Probably not recommended for your precious new and/or uninsured camera. At least pop a couple of cushions below if you want to try this out.

An oldie but a goody, Magnum has been around since 1947, and their site showcases a good deal of the photographs created under the Magnum umbrella. Be sure to check out their Podcasts, and register to gain access to their archives of 350,000 images.
"Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually." Henri Cartier-Bresson

I've started this blog to highlight the great photography sites I stumble across on the net. There's so much to sort through, so I hope you'll keep coming back to have a look at the few I've filtered and posted here.

I'm going to start by shamelessly promoting one of my own.Fine Art Photography Classes is free (that's the kick) and aims to provide exercises that will help to really see the world around you, and create your own vision of it.
