Cool Photography Round-Up

• Universal remotes aren’t inherently interesting, but I find New York photographer Penelope Umbrico’s collection oddly appealing anyway. [Penelope Umbrico]

• Do we gain anything by seeing crime scene photos? Public’s right to know vs. victims’ right to privacy. There are no easy answers. [CNN]

• Robert Caplin started The Photo Brigade to showcase and connect a vast network of photographers who blog and use social media. Caplin explains the submission process: “The best way to be chosen is to have a blog, as our mission is to encourage blogging. In your blog post we’d like to see a number of strong images with a well written explanation about the photography.” [Resolve/LiveBooks]

• Everyone’s taking photos of their food nowadays. “Evidently aware of the trend, manufacturers like Nikon, Olympus, Sony and Fuji have within the last two years released cameras with special ‘food’ or ‘cuisine’ modes.” [New York Times]

• What recession? Take photos for the City of New York  as a full-time staffer. The job is being filled for the first time since 1991 and it pays $37,519. [NY Daily News]

    The right to privacy dies when a person dies. Just like the dead person’s debt, which the living family members would argue that they didn’t have to pay back. This decision has already been decided in the court system.
