Birthday photos

Photo titled A milestone in brownies
A milestone in brownies by Corinne S.

I am working my way backward and posted photos from my birthday party (aka 4th of July). They're all in the Corinne's birthdays group on Flickr. S. Ben and others had already posted photos from this year's party there, but now mine are there, too.

I just posted a few Dashiell photos I took 3 weeks ago. I'll take and post some new ones soon. You can see all the photos in the Dashiell and Amelia group on Flickr.

Video can be great (and yummy)

Have a cookie!

I know some people are against Flickr's recent addition of video. I am not. I'm ecstatic and wish it wasn't limited to 90 seconds so I could post things like Maddy's brother-in-law's full toast from her wedding. But for those who still like to think of Flickr as a place that's all about art (as opposed to family snapshots and the like) this video is evidence of the possibilities for video as a worthy addition to Flickr.

A photographer I really like on Flickr, Rachel Devine, was selected to be featured in a Nikon Pro ad. Very cool.

For photography nerds

A photo called Saturday morning by Petteri Sulonen Rob recommends a blog called Petteri's Pontifications, for photography essays and how to's. I just looked at it for the second time ever, and I'm really impressed with the latest article, Simulating Film Effects with Curves. This is a high investment technique that only photography buffs would consider, but the output is so impressive to me. I hope to find some of my own pictures worthy of trying out these techniques on and time to do just that.
