The difference between art and porn
There's a fine line one treads when people wearing anything less than the sort of clothing one might wear to a formal dinner are involved in art: Where does something cease to be art and start becoming un-artistic pornography?

I got up in the middle of the night to take some pictures of the eclipse. Here is some video I made out of some of the digital shots I took. I also took some film pictures, but those need to be developed. first.
Five rules for working with models
Five simple rules for working with models. Not being creepy is only number two...
Having another person involved in a shoot.
I was talking with a photographer at one point and he asked why I bother with models. See, it is a huge time sink for me to find models to work with. My lightpaintings are often limited by exactly how long I can get a model to stay still, so sometimes I get back film from a shoot and find that the model is very blurry. And sometimes, I set up a shoot and the model never shows up at that appointed time and place which really wastes my time.

Somebody's writing a documentary about the TFP modeling community, some more thoughts on image theft, and a Leica M8 is shown to be pretty awful for real use in Iraq.
What it's really like to spend time photographing mostly naked women
