Here’s round 7, and it’s been a pretty good week. I missed last week, because quite frankly, there was very little floating around on the internet that actually interested me. Be sure to check out the hue recognition test this week, it’s good to know, and fun to take.

French organisation launches controversial ad campaign for photographers’ rights

“Each day, a photographer’s work is used without his consent,” reads this new campaign poster by French organisation Union des Photographes Professionnels – Auteurs.

The campaign, launched this week, was created after the organisation found that photographers’ rights continued to be abused. “It’s obvious that professional photographers are not being listened to,” says a spokeswoman. “So, for the first time, we’re speaking to the photographic community with an image. We hope to raise awareness among the public, as well as the media and the government, about photographers’ problems. Each day, photographers are faced with decreasing rates. They are forced to compete against image libraries that are offering vile prices. These practices are infringing on photographers’ moral rights.”

Clever Photography Makes These Tiny Lego Rooms Look Like Full-Size Spaces

A technique known as tilt-shift photography can turn everyday scenes into miniature wonderlands. But at this point the trick is as tired as vintage filters, so photographer Valentino Fiadini did just the opposite with these miniature Lego rooms—photographing them to look like life-size locations.

At first glance you might think this looks like a large marble room, possibly in an art gallery, with sunlight streaming in through the windows. But it’s not. It’s made entirely of tiny Lego bricks, meticulously photographed to look like you could just stroll right through it.

Garbage men portray their city – with its garbage – Binhole Cameras

This. Is. Awesome. Now, it’s in German, so I’m using Google translate, but the photos really speak for themselves here.

Hardly anyone knows his city as good as the hamburger garbage men, every day, traveling in all weathers are. They express their love for their city now in a special way: with converted trash they photographed favorite places they have discovered on their tours through all parts of the city.

“It is the oldest and simplest camera design in the world,” said garbage truck driver and amateur photographer Hans-Dieter Braatz principle. “To turn a garbage can into a camera, you only have a tiny hole drilled purely forward and hang a large sheet of photo paper inside the back. Is finished, the huge, rolling pinhole camera”.Screen shot 2012 04 22 at 14.20.03 Most Interesting Photography Links of The Week 007

Online Hue Recognition Test

How good is your hue recognition? It’s important to know, because 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency. I personally scored a 4, but I wasn’t trying all that hard, and hey, give me a break, I’m a busy man. The aim is to score as low as possible, so it’s a pretty good result. Take the test yourself and share the results in a comment below. Screen shot 2012 04 22 at 14.24.23 Most Interesting Photography Links of The Week 007

Balloon and kite imagery in Google Earth

“Here at Google we publish a lot of imagery, most of which comes from the satellite and aerial imagery providers with whom we partner. Last week we published something a bit different: images collected from balloons and kites! The resolution is amazing, and it’s something that just about anyone can do themselves.”1 Most Interesting Photography Links of The Week 007
