It’s Friday! As much as I like making photographs I also love searching and sharing awesome photography. Every week I share some of the things that caught my attention or inspires me.
- Online Color Challenge – How well do you see color?
Who doesn’t like a challenge? Apparently 1 out of 255 women and 1 out of 12 men have some form of color vision deficiency. Want to know if you’re one of them? Take this hue recognition test by X-Rite. Not that want to brag but I got the “You have perfect color vision!” result. The lower score the better, and again, I got 0 as in perfect score! Ok I’ll stop now.☺

Oh one day I’ll be able to say I’ve been to all those places!
- TIME ZERO: The Last Year Of Polaroid Film The death and rebirth of instant film photography are the subject of photographer Grant Hamilton’s documentary TIME ZERO: The Last Year of Polaroid Film. As you know Polaroid discontinued its instant photography products in 2008 but the instant film is still alive today thanks to Polaroid’s lover Austrian Florian Kaps who bought the Polaroid factory in the Netherlands and restarted production with the awesome Impossible Project. The documentary will have its world premiere at the Independent Film Festival Boston this Saturday April 28th, 2012. Coincidentally, Boston was the home of Polaroid’s headquarters. Synopsis from the website: “TIME ZERO” starts as a eulogy to Polaroid instant film and cameras, sharing with viewers the magic of Polaroid through the perspective of a few Polaroid artists and former employees of the corporation. After documenting the fateful day when Polaroid announced it would cease production of instant film, “TIME ZERO” shares the intense emotions of several photographers as they recount hearing the news…and focuses on a few passionate photographers who decide to start a grass-roots effort to keep instant film alive. The documentary chronicles the passionate efforts of a small team who – against all odds – tried to keep instant photography alive.
Couple Pays £750 for “the Worst Wedding Photos Ever” (via Petapixel)
This isn’t an inspiration but this story got all over the internet this week. Seriously, who’s to blame? The photographers who provided crappy pictures or the couple who clearly didn’t bother to make some research? Didn’t this photographer have a portfolio? $1200 is a lot of money but it remains cheap for professional wedding photography. Prices for a good professional photographer usually range from around $2000 – $6000. You always get what you pay for. In this case I agree the photos don’t even worth a penny.
