Round 4, lets go. Jailbreak your camera? That sounds interesting. Insights from one of the leading photography bloggers on the internet? Sure sounds good. An hour long interview with Henri Cartier-Bresson? Have a laugh, that sounds too good. It’s all here…

Jailbreak for your Canon Camera

If you haven’t seen this before (and I hadn’t before now), then you need to check it out.

That’s where Magic Lantern comes in — it turns your 5D Mark II into a 5D Mark Free. They’ve written extensions and widgets that fix many of the annoyances in working with the 5D Mark II on a film or video set. Our first set of fixes are targeted at the audio limitations of the camera, but there are some video enhancements included, too:

  • On-screen audio meters
  • Manual gain control with no AGC
  • Zebra stripes (video peaking)
  • Custom Cropmarks for 16:9, 2.35:1, 4:3 and any other format
  • Control of focus and bracketing

Seven Things I Wish I’d Have Known When I First Became A Photographer

Scott Bourne’s website has a ridiculous number of blog posts if you’ve not seen them before, and this one in particular really caught my attention.

“They say you master something once you’ve made 10,000 mistakes doing it. If that’s true, then I must be a Grand Master at photography because I seem to have found a way to make 20,000 mistakes. As I talk with young people about photography some of the same misconceptions and questions come up over and over and I realized – I wish someone had taken the time to sit me down and share a few things with me when I first started out that would have saved me at least 5,000 of those mistakes. So here goes nothing. I’m going to let you know what I would have liked that advice to be.”Screen shot 2012 03 25 at 12.38.57 Most Interesting Photography Links of The Week 004

Nikon D800 gets a 95 on DxOMark

For those that don’t know, a DxOMark is the trusted industry standard for camera and lens independent image quality measurements and ratings. And a 95 is a very high score. The new Canon 5d MkIII has yet to be reviewed by them, but I should imagine it will only add fuel to the fire over which one is best. Most Interesting Photography Links of The Week 004

Henri Cartier-Bresson interviewed by Charlie Rose

Henri Cartier-Bresson is one of the century’s icons of photography, and here’s a rare glimpse into the man behind the camera. This is an hour long interview which had me glued to my screen, following Henri’s view of the world, which Charlie just can’t seem to understand. He’s an amazing man and an amazing photographer, and provides some wonderful insights to himself and his work. It’s an hour long, which is a long time to pay attention to anything on the internet, but truly worth it.

A Banker Who Unwinds by Photographing Prostitutes

This is the story of a 46 year old male banker, who makes a good income, and chooses to spend some of his spare time taking photos of prostitutes. He says he hopes his photos and descriptions provide a platform for some of the most marginalized New Yorkers to tell their stories, but this story is about him. He pays his subjects a small fee, whether they’re male or female, hooked on drugs, or just doing it for the money, but he spends a total of around $500 a month on his hobby, mostly to pay for the large prints he gives to his subjects. It’s a really interesting story, and it makes you wonder who you would take photos of yourself if money wasn’t a problem.
