Grandmother today…

I received this by email today and it is simply too good not to share !


Sorry I have no idea who did it so I can’t give proper credits


Time to run or time to shoot? [Poll]

If encountered a risky situation with your camera at hand, would you run or would you stop and shoot ?

A long time adidap reader and friend MIR is interested to know how far would a photographer go or how much would you risk to take a picture.

So if trapped in a hurricane, fire, war or other risky situation would you first think of fleeing away or grab some picture first?

Have you already faced this choice?

What would make you run? what would make you stand and shoot? is it the money? fame? sharing and transmitting the "moment" that otherwise would be lost ? …

please share your thoughts and experiences

Photographer of the week: Marc St. Pierre

Marc was scheduled to be featured last Friday but due to my unexpected travel I had to postpone it till today.

Marc is a professional photographer and I’ve had the chance to see various shots of his and I can tell you he has a lot of talent. However, Marc has chosen to share with us this week one of his favorite subjects: Aviation Photography.

As someone who has tried and failed to capture birds in flight, I can only imagine how hard it is be to be able to nail a shot of a high speed plane, but Marc has impressive ones even when the plane is coming straight at him.

For more of Marc’s work I will invite you to visit his gallery and, as a bonus, a video of Marc at work. And now the selection
