Being a photographer can sometimes be a lonely prospect. Even photographers that often work with people as subjects or on crowded streets will have to put in countless hours alone, editing their work. This fact only makes it even more important for photographers to actively reach out and form communities, if not for the sake of their work then at least for the sake of their social lives and sanity.

Yesterday, Flickr announced new changes that included a free, ad-supported terabyte of storage for all Flickr users. When I heard the news, I believed that Flickr Pro account users would be given an opportunity to stay Pro going forward. I thought this because this, in fact, was my understanding of what was told to me by a Flickr Senior Manager in a briefing earlier in the morning before the announcement.
Unfortunately, I found out the hard way yesterday that this is not the case.
The Google+ Photos team along with photographers Thomas Hawk, Trey Ratcliff and Robert Scoble are organizing what they think may turn out to be the biggest photowalk in the history of, well, photowalking. Set for next Tuesday May 14th, the event already has almost 700 confirmed guests via Google+. Read more…
MIOPS is a new smartphone-controlled camera trigger that combines all of the features photographers want in a high-speed camera trigger into one convenient device.
4am Project is an ambitious project with a simple concept: have everyone take photographs at a particular time on a particular date, and pool them together on the Internet to share our unique perspectives on the world.
Here’s the description on the website:
The aim of the 4amproject is to gather a collection of photos from around the world at the magical time of 4am. Everyone can take part and join in! All you need is a camera.
The time was chosen because 4 to 5 in the morning is a time of the day when streets are usually deserted, and photographers can have the city to themselves.
The project started in 2008 as a personal project of Karen Strunks, a resident of Birmingham in the UK. Though small at first, it has slowly gained a following, and the tag “4amproject” now has over 2,000 photographs on Flickr.
On April 4th, 2010 (tomorrow), photographers around the world will be organizing photo walks and various gatherings at 4am to photograph together. One lucky participant in the project will be receiving a Nikon D90 DSLR with a 18-105mm lens, and there are additional prizes as well.
If you’d like to participate, shoot something between 4 and 5 in the morning tomorrow, and upload it to Flickr with the tag “4amproject”. Happy shooting!
Thanks for the tip, @me_vareen!
