You have failed me for the last time!

Dear Nissin Di622,

Your shambly TTL system almost ruined my assignment yesterday.
We had some manual fun in the past, but now you're going to be my 4th choice and last resort.

The SB-24s are WAAAAY more reliable, fast and useful than you, despite being almost as old as me.

But let's still be friends!

Best regards,
JFM Photo

PS: So, does anyone have a cheap SB-800 willing to sell?

...So, I kinda got dismissed from my previous "job", wich means I'll be (finally!) dedicating some time to post here.

Just a heads-up.

School time: Megapixels

Following Photofocus' great article/rant about the megapixel madness that camera manufacturers have fallen to, I thought it would be useful to make an article explaining exactly how a GREATER mpx count is BAD for your pictures.


Continue, after the jump.

Far away, but close to mind, a REALLY cool place to find some of the best photojournalism being made today, just published pictures of a toxic flood in Hungary.

So, thanks to the news sharig power of twitter, I found out today of the aforementioned spill, in the village of Kolontar.

Usually, people tend not to be too worried about  stuff going on on countries far, far away. But I've met friends for Hungary. And suddently I realized that every overseas disaster means that someone I know may be greatly affected.

And that, boys and girls, is how you become aware of world's problems!

Neither Sh*tting, nor getting off the Pot! (slightly NSFW)

Or: "How I got screwed thanks to YouTube!"

Arraial do Caloiro 2010 XIBeing a freelancer is a hard-time job.
Brian Ach's featured article on JPG Magazine offers a good, down-to-earth view on what it takes to be one, and you should read it.

It can be rewarding, but sometimes you kinda get screwed.

More, inside.

Expanding Business

Economy is progressively rising again, and new business opportunities are surfacing.

Henceforth, and if you haven't noticed yet, the frequent contact I have with Erasmus students in my city have led to the broadening of what JFM Photo has to offer.
Namely, novelty souvenirs!

Expanding Business

These license plates are the first step.

If you care about the strobist info, peer in...
