I love the contrast in these portrait pairs by LA Times photographer Jay L. Clendenin of a selection of Team USA’s Olympic athletes.
Each photograph on the right of the pair is photographed digitally using a Canon 5d Mark II while the photograph on the left is done traditionally using a 4-by-5-inch field camera and a 100-plus-year-old Petzval lens exposed onto black and white photographic paper, and processed in a darkroom, before being scanned into a computer.

If I was an actual photographer I would more than likely be backing this kickstarter project to get these bags made.
It’s the Langly camera bag that has a pretty cool vintage feel, it’s waterproof, and would be a good travel bag with compartments for clothing, cameras/lens, laptop, and four other accessory pockets.
Find the kickstarter page here if you’re interested.
I love behind-the-scenes style videos/TV shows/photography so this is right up my street.

An archival photo from The New York Times shows news pictures being sorted in the newspaper’s photo “morgue,” which houses millions of images. Here they are — several each week — for you to see. Welcome to The Lively Morgue. Photo: The New York Times
This is a very cool idea by the New York Times, and a great way to put photographs from their archives, which could have been locked away and never seen the light of day again, to great use.

I took this picture last year at Glastonbury and i’ve only just had the time to sit down and edit it properly this week and I’m dead happy with how it has come out.
It’s up there as one of my favourite pictures I’ve ever taken, just because of the people in it and their history. On stage with gorillaz, it’s Mick Jones, the former guitarist of The Clash, and Paul Simonon, the former bass player of The Clash (you may know him better from Pennie Smith’s photograph of him smashing his bass across a New York stage, that kind of defines the Clash).
