It seems like Google want you to set up 'pages' for your business - so for a quiet life I've done this (Google are offering no API access to private accounts so social media tools like HootSuite which I'm evaluating at present will only work with Google+ pages). As such I will post any photographically oriented thoughts on that page now - which is here: https://plus.google.com/+SilvercanvasPhoto - if you are interested in photography please go and follow it to stay updated. If not then non-photo stuff will continue to be posted here. For a while I'll post one line summaries here to anything I post on the page but will stop doing that after the page has some followers...

Silvercanvas News Update: For those interested in my photography I've recently reworked the galleries on my site to use smugmug - allowing for gorgeous full screen browsing on desktops - or painless mobile browsing on your phones. Of course you can order prints if you are old fashioned that way too :)  http://www.silvercanvas.com/ - I've also started a silvercanvas twitter account for those inclined to tweet - https://twitter.com/scanvasphoto - yes, a social media marketing effort. Not really with much aim other that to make it easier to get my stuff out there and for anyone interested to stay connected. I have little time to work on non-social media efforts due to other commitments - hence need all the help I can get exposure wise :) If you are really desperate you can go and like the facebook page too: http://facebook.com/silvercanvasphoto. I quite dislike all these big government friendly monitoring stations - but it appears to be necessary nowadays. For those who feel the same I'm thinking about a Silvercanvas Diaspora account too - I like Diaspora. Reminds me of FidoNet a bit. Any interest? http://www.diasp.org/

Well from a individual perspective whether you think what you are doing is "Art" or not just determines how you approach your work and how you present it. In terms of the wide world out there - you don't get to decide if it's "Art" or not. Other people do that by way of their response to it (if any)...

This is good news for those of us who aren't impressed with the permanence or reliability of magneto/optical based storage mediums... I expect it will be very slow to start with - but nevertheless an archive medium with a potential life expectancy of a few thousand years is much better than what we currently have... http://bit.ly/S7vP5X

If you haven't heard (I've been far too busy so I hadn't): Adobe have a special offer on Photographers Creative Cloud (Photoshop CC + Lightroom 5). £8.78 a month until Dec 31st. With creative cloud you can lease the software for as long as you need it. Another advantage is you always have the latest and greatest. Not for everyone (some are quite happy owning old versions) but worth looking at if you are in the photo business or just like to have the latest code... - https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offer/photoshop+lightroom?store_code=gb&locale=en

DISCLAIMERS: Hmm I should add they say in the small print when you go to join it's a one year contract - so really £105 for a year. I did think of saying it might be a good toy to play with over Christmas and then cancel within the 30 days acceptance period they give you - but I think you can download a free trial if you want to do that so don't need to join up just to mess around with it. ALSO be aware you need recent OS's to run Photoshop CC - i.e. Windows 7/8 or Mac OSX 10.8/10.9... Windows XP will not hack it - neither will older versions of OSX.

Ok well it is Black Friday when everyone goes shopping mad in the US so I suppose this is sort of appropriate. Although I am selling to the UK so maybe not that appropriate (if you are not in the UK and want one message me). I have a bunch of new shrink wrapped "Fetish Goddess: Dita" books I am selling via eBay UK at £13 UK a go including postage (that's why it's UK only). That's cheaper than any other way of getting them in the UK currently. So if you don't have this yet or want it as a present for someone - now's your chance. In case there is anyone in the universe who doesn't know yet - the book contains images by me (15 pages + the back cover) and also by many other "first wave" Dita photographers: Sean McCall, Chris Cuffaro, Peter W. Czernich, Danielle Emerick, Steve Diet Goedde, James and James, Chas Ray Krider, Christophe Mourthe, Pierre and Gary Silva, Trevor Baker and Jim Weathers. If you are interested in a copy then: http://ebay.eu/18ciG1o - if you are not apologies for the interruption to your stream!

There's some truth to this Internet meme which is circulating at the moment - although I suspect more than 5 photos were taken on the moon. After all they took a Hasselblad up there which uses 120/220 film - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/120_film - which at 6x6 gives you 12 shots per roll. But in spirit we know what it's saying.

Taking millions of photos all of which are mediocre seems to have become the norm. I don't object to lots of photos being taken, sometimes it's necessary. But it can make you really lazy at times when it's not necessary and then you become sloppy because "one of them will do".

So for any new photographers reading this and just starting out and looking to improve their skills - here's a little exercise you can try for fun to see what you learn from it... But I think it also applies to those of us more experienced too - you can never be too good at recognizing what does/doesn't need to be captured.

Use a small memory card (or limit yourself to x shots only where x is less than 30). Try and make each shot count. Try to photograph in such a way that there is minimal sorting needed of the results. Just as an exercise - to see what you learn from the experience. Of course do this on a non-critical assignment - perhaps when you are visiting somewhere taking snaps.

BENEFITS: Your compositional skills will improve. You will save time not having to sort millions of pictures. This means when one day you get to photograph something really important but only have a few minutes to capture it - you will be better prepared to nail it! RISKS: Until you become good at it you may miss shots. But far fewer than useless shots you would have taken just mindlessly snapping. DISCLAIMER: Some types of photography need many pictures and rapid shooting - photo-journalism, sports photography etc. obviously this does not apply then.

Nikon's D800 38 megapixel DSLR not high enough resolution for you? Phase One 80 megapixel backs still lacking? Maybe Zeke at Spectral Instruments has a solution for you with his 112 megapixel camera (they also do a 268 megapixel version in their 900 series range). http://youtu.be/6gEu3T8DcrI
