I would love to see something like this actually work - https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1374923168/film-35-innovative-photography-experience/comments
I'm pretty skeptical about this specific project, although I'll be keenly keeping an eye out on it. One of these projects will end up pulling it off eventually...
@pjonori The dilemma I have is that a lot of great photos (the ones that gut punch you) are often great in part because they live in this ethical gray-area. They’re not the sort of thing that’s often photographed because of the social discomfort.
That in no way sways me to take those photos - we all need to have a code and be able to stand by the rationale of our output - but I’d like to peer into the decision-making process when great photographers are going put in front of that situation.
I would love, love, love to hear from documentary/journalistic/street photographers on the subject of code/ethics. I think all three would have different answers - but I’d be curious what their respective “line” is.
I run into this dilemma *at least* a couple times whenever I’m out shooting. I see something that would be a major shot and I just won’t take it due to an ambiguous “line” I’ve drawn for myself.
I meant to post this a while back, but this one of the only lucid opinions I've heard from the whole mirrorless camera reveals.
Nearly every camera on the market is remarkably great in terms of technological feat. The technology isn't limiting you. No excuses, just go out and shoot.
Twelve up-and-coming photographers from Africa, Latin America and the United States are featured this month at Photoville, the temporary village of galleries in converted shipping containers underneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

More experiments with the diffusion filter. I didn't get as noticeable results at first. This time around I put the filter lens with an older optical design but one that I still considered "too sharp". The results more significant, but maybe still not as much as I'd like to see. Still, I'm liking where this is going.
Left is my main lens without filter. Right is my backup lens with filter.
William Eggleston is a unique dude that has taken some really amazing photographs - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jZ_HkaTXh8
