Photography News: Found, Bitter, Fashion, Pinball

  • The Bitter Photographer is a bitingly sarcastic new blog that is off to a hilarious start
  • Here’s a huge time-saver for WordPress users — the WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin. Thanks to Scott for the heads up! I backed up my blog database and upgraded WordPress in about 2 minutes.
  • I worked for photographer Jay Watson on a clothing shoot a few months ago. There were 13 pieces of clothing and 57 images on the shot list for a one day shoot! Jay is extremely organized — we had three lighting setups — while Jay was shooting one setup, I was pre-lighting the next one. Read more about this fast paced clothing shoot, including Jay’s strategies for post-processing and client file delivery in his article over on the Lexar website.
  • If you’re in the San Francisco Bay Area, get yourself over to the Pacific Pinball Expo at the Marin Civic Center. Michael Schiess of Lucky Ju Ju has teamed up with The Pinball Revival Co to bring you hundreds of pinball machines to play from the 1930′s to present. I’ll be there on Sunday evening taking some photos and playing some pinball.
