What a fun time we had in San Francisco at the FrotoWALK. As you can see form the picture below there a ton of people who joined us. I have not had a chance to count them up just yet but if you do please let me know the tally.
I would really love to do more FrotoWALKS around the country so we can get to meet more of the FroNation in person.
Where would you like us to have a FrotoWALK, please leave a comment below.
You can post your FrotoWALK photos right here in the FroForum.
The age old question every time Nikon and Canon put out a similar camera is which one should you buy. This time around we have the Nikon D600 and the Canon 6D.
I have done a full review of both of these cameras and during the video you can click the top left or top right to go see that review. Some people like to see two cameras shot in the exact situations and than review the sample images. To me thats just not real, its not shooting in a real world environment which would be almost impossible to replicate the settings and situations.
We are back!!!!!!!! For more than a year I have been holding the weekend THEME and it is time for a change. The themes have been going very well but from time to time you have to make some changes to keep things FRESH. Before I explain the new simple rules for the Monthly Photo Contest, please be sure to VOTE for last weeks TOP 5 to help one of the photographers WIN a BlackRapid Strap.
A photographer was killed when photographing Justin Biebers Ferrari. This paparazzi was crossing a highway when he was struck and killed. You can read the full story here on CNN.com
Let me say first that I am really really sorry that someone was killed, I feel for their family, friends and anyone involved in the accident.
Is any photo like this worth dying over? Will that snap shot of Justin Bieber be the greatest photo ever or will it just be another snap shot?
We have to look at this closer though. Are these paparazzi photographers or people who push a button in hopes of getting a big pay day? I know some of these photographers, I have been in the pit with them at concerts and we have conversations about what they do and I question it. Most of the time the answer they give me for why they do it is because its a paycheck. I get that, I understand people have to make a living, we all make a living at something. But chasing around a celebrity, sometimes putting yourself and other people in danger is just to much.
Is any shot worth dying over, especially one of Justin Bieber in his car????
What do you think, should there be tougher laws against chasing celebrities around to try and get s snap shot?
I also understand that many of the celebrities tip photographers off and invite the coverage because it helps them. I am honestly not a big fan of those snap shots capturing someone somewhere doing something, thats not the decisive moment.
