The Nomadic Camera Project

Sunday, July 29th, 2007

Ami Ben Basat – a journalist, a writer and a friend has started an amazing project – he sent his miniature Sony T7 camera on a photo-journey. Each week, this jewel of a camera spends a week with one photographer documenting his or her life and afterwards it’s passed on to the next photographer in […]

Announcing Flickriver – my latest project

Sunday, July 1st, 2007

I love Flickr. I use it almost daily – I post my own photographs and view photos my friends are posting. I search Flickr for specific locations, events, objects or people. Sometimes, I explore Flickr and discover amazing pictures and great photographers. I think Flickr has great user interface, but after using it for a […]

The Art and Science of Photography

Friday, June 22nd, 2007

Quite a few years ago, during my undergraduate studies, I took a course named “Science in Art”. The course explored various scientific subjects such as light and symmetry as reflected in famous paintings, sculptures and other artistic creations. For my final course paper I decided to explore both artistic and scientific aspects of photography. I […]

Italy posted to Flickr – India’s next

Friday, May 18th, 2007

I’ve finally finished working on the photos from my 2001 trip to Italy and uploaded them to Flickr. Next are the photos from my trip to India, Nepal and Thailand in 2000. I have more than 1,200 photographs from that trip, out of which I’ll need to select the best ones and post them to […]

My JPG Mag submission: America

I just singed up for JPG Magazine and submitted my first photo. JPG Mag is a website, a photo community and a magazine. Unlike Flickr, they encourage uploading only your best work. The great thing is that it’s also a real magazine published 6 times a year which consists entirely of user contributed photos. Time […]

Posting old photos to Flickr

Sunday, April 15th, 2007

A few years back I decided to have all my photo films scanned, in order to complete my move to digital photography. I got a few friends and family members organized and got a great deal on having several hundreds of film rolls scanned at a pretty high resolution. Anyway, I started to post the […]

Flickr Post Event Networking

Friday, April 13th, 2007

I read a blog post by Jeff Pulver about using Flickr for connecting with new people after attending an event together. Jeff had a simple and elegant suggestion – we need a tool that given a conference or an event tag will show me all the people who posted photos on that event and who […]

MIFI series: Most Interesting Flickr Images by tag

Sunday, March 25th, 2007

I had this idea for a while now, and today I finally decided to do something about it. The idea is very simple – I often play with flickr to find out what’s the most interesting image that corresponds to a specific tag – for example: what’s the most interesting image on ‘music’ or ‘love’? […]
