And there’s this: “Media seeking credentials to review or photograph performances at the festival must submit their request in writing on media letterhead to dcase@cityofchicago.org. Requests must include whether credential is regular press or photo, indicate the date or dates and provide phone and email contacts. Note: Some artists require approval, and some dictate how many songs may be photographed.”

Pinhole Day Is Coming

We’ve demonstrated a number of times how quick and how easy it can be to make a pinhole camera; we’ve also seen examples of how specialized a camera can be designed. Now is the time to do it for World Wide Pinhole Photography Day.

There are endless links to resources, from Kodak to artists to enthusiast groups to youtube tutorials. Dig in! Here are a few examples from the Huge School.

I Prefer “Decline.”

“Every format has particularities and film renders space, light, color and volume in distinct ways from digital as well as from the formats previous to film’s invention. Those distinctions affect content because of the inherent links between technique, form and meaning: changes in how photographs appear create different readings just as the changes in how the words we choose when we write a text alter meanings as we read them.”

Soderbergh

Steven Soderberg is “retired,” but lives on at his blawwg. One of his more fascinating posts is “Raiders Of The Lost Ark,” entirely monochromatic (izzat a woid?). Watch it scenes over a number of days, as did moi; perhaps the replacement electronica soundtrack is negligible.

P.S. The website shop offers t-shirts which reference films, but only for those who are in the know. They’re on the pricy side. (My birthday’s in June; I take an L. http://extension765.com/products/T018).

Fefo!

Mr. Fefo Velozo is one of a number of excellent pinhole photographers who are producing engaging and graphic pictures.

Look at him for, oh, one second in this trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mynL9aXTxAs
