Vivian Maier’s Work in Question

Yep!

Copyright!

It’s an area that most artists don’t understand and is almost as confusing as knowing your rights as a photographer.

Very good article from the New York Times:

“Under federal copyright law, owning a photograph’s negative or a print is distinct from owning the copyright itself. The copyright owner controls whether images can be reproduced and sold.” – From the New York Times, Sept 5, 2014

Another interesting article on the financial reality of being an artist today:

Year Of No Sugar

A very funny and informative book written by my wife Eve O. Schaub on our family’s grand adventure to go a year with no added sugar in our diet. A Year Of No Sugar ok… a Year Of No Film… no way!!

New Leica T System Camera

Here are my thoughts: meh! I’m not even going to post a picture. Why? Because it depresses me too much.

Give me my M4 any day. This new T System  is yet another example of Leica tying to compete with Fuji and Sony, which is a very bad idea long term.

Now back to making pictures which is what you should be doing instead of reading this post… enough already with the endless camera upgrade drool…
