Interesting reading on the ‘net

By Robert Hanashiro, Sports Shooter Newsletter

Controversy surrounding a high-profile contest? Say it isn’t! Call me old school --- or just old --- but digitally altering an image for news coverage is still a no-no to me. Do the ends justify them means? Read photographer Chip Litherland’s take on his personal blog:

Copyright and getting paid for your work is always a strong topic on the SportsShooter.com Message Board. What does Shakespeare have to do with all of that? Read this piece from the NY Times op-ed page (thanks for sending this to me Epp!):

HBO’s fun series “Taxi Cab Confessions” has always been a favorite of mine. Check out this very cool video by my buddy Myung J. Chun on Johnny Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten) being driving to their office for an interview:

I love looking at newspapers. When the Sports Designers website closed down last year I was very sad --- where else could I see the sports front from the LA Times and a paper in Brazil in the same place? Well SportsDesigner.com has been resurrected via the “social network” on Facebook (where else?):

I look at a lot of photographers’ websites, especially ones featuring my friends’ work. When I look at my buddy Matt Mendelsohn’s cool site I always think back to when I was sitting in his apartment watching an early morning World Cup soccer broadcast, eating bagels … with peanut butter. Matt’s work is amazing. His insights … insightful and thoughtful:

There isn’t another newspaper shooter out there that can cover football like Dan Powers. You can check out his work and his thoughts about the work at a blog at his newspaper’s website (dude we missed you in Dallas!):

All photographers love to tinker. My old Apple iPhone 3G is on its last legs power-wise. Before I “gift it” to my daughter, I need to change the battery. You can find everything you need to do that at iFixit --- step-by-step instructions, tools and parts:

And we finish up with a fun video at Phillip Bloom’s cool website:
