The Fuji QuickSnap Marine Waterproof works great in a pinch. I had to write this camera review, because I am very impressed with the results of this Fuji one time use underwater camera
I had been planning for this trip to the Caribbean for some months in advance and knowing this coral reef from previous trips I had time to check my under water equipment. Well as it turned out in the rush at the last minutes I forgot my underwater cameras. So with great trepidation and fear I bought a Fuji Disposable Under Water Camera. I was concerned with the quality of said camera and the ISO seems too high at 800 and I thought it would have lots of grain. Well to my great surprise this camera preformed better than I had thought possible. I am sure it helped it was an extremely clear day and no a lot of people were visiting this off season day. So if you are in a pinch and forgot your head and need to shoot in a coral reef or a bath tub and forgot the cameras you know work well under water, give this camera Fuji onetime use under water camera a try. It worked better than I believed possible.

In April of this year I had the chance to test the Petzval Lens and to write a review on it for the German photography forum Kwerfeldein. The lens excited me from the very beginning, at the time it was introduced on Kickstarter. I was afraid that once I had tested the lens, I would want to have one of my own! Well, that’s what happened; a year later, I finally bought my very own Petzval lens.
The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white. To write this tribute, I used my Holga to take some pictures of amateur sport activities around my city. Take a look after the jump.

Herein is the first of his series that chronicles his adventures, highlighted by a selection of breathtaking images of the Sri Lankan countryside and the locals, among many other images, captured with his trusty photographic companions: the Leica MP, Lomo LC-A+, and an assortment of films including the LomoChrome Purple.

Stephen Shore introduced to the 70s art world an unadorned image of American life. He captured littered restaurant tables as other photographers would immaculate vistas. For the opening of “American Surfaces”, he even taped unframed snapshots on gallery walls. In these videos, Shore talks about objects that have “no pretention to art” and the things he learned from Andy Warhol.
