Tweetups, Twittersphere, Tweeps, Twitworking, Twestivals & Twitter Comments Off

These are some notes and homework to serve as a guide for my New Media and Web Development at BCIT – Class 2. :)

Coincidence? Hmmm....Before we embark on this adventure I’d like to warn you about a couple of things.

First, the land of Twitter otherwise annoyingly referred to by TwitterHeads as the Twitterverse or Twittersphere… is awash with used car salesman, get rich quick dudes, snake oil peddlers, hacks, loudmouths & know-it-alls. Don’t let it turn you off. Don’t think that’s an ok way to act online. This however shouldn’t be any reason to not engage in the medium but instead probably some sort of proof point that there is in fact something new and special happening here.

Second, I want you to know that Twitter isn’t just people talking about mundane things. People all over the world are right this second sharing knowledge, ideas, stories, intimate details, connections, and emotions – to audiences known and unknown. Not just miscellania but real intimate discourse. By participating in some little corner of the Net, you are contributing to the organic growth of something much larger – a collective consciousness of info, art and emotion — and by doing this we are contributing to the overall health of the public domain and our culture.

Top 20 Vancouver Twitter Peeps Based on Klout Score - Comments (26)

BarCamp Vancouver - Wall-O-Love

Someone turned me onto a new tool called Klout that more or less manages your reach and influence on Twitter. They’ve got a fancy methodology for doing so… it’s very detailed. I only understand the basics and realize that these kinda things can be hard to measure and that a tool that ranked people based on their kindness or touchiness or hawt sexy awesomeness would be a lot more interesting… nonetheless I’ve tinkered with the Klout tool a bit and generated this list of Top 20 Vancouver Twitter Peeps Based on Their Klout Score.

Social Media Tools & Strategies for Event Planners & Organizers - Comments (3)

I’m giving a talk tonight in Calgary to a group of event planners. They want to know how they can use new tools and strategies to plan and manage their events. I’m gonna start with a lil philosophical talk about citizen journalism & media making as well as particpatory group culture and principles and move on to a bunch of tools and tactics people can start implementing today. Here’s a copy of the slides I’ll use.

Gastown Photowalk Crew

Over the past 5 years I’ve been involved in various event planning and management activities as a part of my community development work. I’m on the organizing committee of Northern Voice & BarCamp Vancouver. I plan regular PhotoWalks and PhotoCamps for photographers in Vancouver and around the world. I helped organize the first BarCamp in China with Robert Scales and others in 2006 and advise and consult to a variety of other events from the Canadian New Media Awards to South By Southwest in Austin, TX.

Internet Visibility – Moving From a ‘Web of Pages’ to a ‘Web of Streams’ - Comments (8)

Last Week The Vancouver Sun and NowPublic posted a list of the ‘Top 20 Web Visible’ people in Vancouver. I was number 4 on the list. Their methodology was questionable, but I’m always stoked and humbled to be included with the likes of the other 19 on the list. Thank you thank you thank you! :)

Good TimesSome people who seem frustrated to have placed below me on the list have questioned my position considering I haven’t posted on this blog since August. True guys. I haven’t. But the list wasn’t called ‘Highest Traffic Blogs’ it was called ‘Most Web Visible’. News flash: We’re moving from a web of pages, to a web of streams. Buy me a beer and I’ll tell explain what that means. ;) In the mean time you may want to check out some of the places I’m visible on the web that aren’t this blog.

  • Twitter – my daily microblog updates from my mobile phone. My Facebook status messages also get updated automagically via Twitter.
  • Flickr – 20,000 Creative Commons licensed photos and growing.
  • YouTube – I love Videoblogging and have posted about 200 episodes. Wish I had more time and better gear!
  • LinkedIn – I currate my CV here. 114 endorsements and recommendations from customers and partners and employees and 1000+ professional contacts.
  • Dopplr – I’ve been travelling a ton and use Dopplr to publicize my comings and goings and see who will be at the same place at the same time. It’s rad. Check it!
  • FriendFeed – Next level geek shit. The way to follow the web of streams.
  • Delicious – I still post interesting links and pointers here though I have gotten a bit lazy and sometimes just ‘Share of Facebook’. :(
  • Facebook – A good catchall for my less media savvy friends and family. I point all my streams there. Ends up looking like I spend a lot more time on Facebook than I actually do. ;)

Photography Video from Northern Voice Post Everywhere on the Web Comments Off

Here’s a video of me talking about photography at Northern Voice earlier this year. It was taken by Robert Scoble of PodTech and has been posted all over the web including over at Digital Photography School where there is an interesting pissing match going on between people who think my video is a good informal intro to photography and the people who think I’m lame because I don’t know where in Germany the glass in my lenses is ground. *smirk*

To All You Wannabe Fashion Photographers Comments Off

Fake it til you make it!In the past 2 years I’ve getting more and more into fashion photography. I’m involved in a couple photography and fashion online communities and subscribe to a few blogs and am generally trying to familiarize myself with the industry and scene. I go to meetups, look at other photographers work, assist different photographers when I can, but photography books and tear them apart, and book lots of lil creative shoots for practice and experience college football lines . Anyway, today over at Flickr in the Fashion Photographer’s Discussion Forum I came around this awesome post that I thought was so insightful that I wanted to copy it here to my blog.

“there are few exceptionals for sure. but my “personal” experience are here:

dont go to the expensive photography college,they are a ripoff for the posh kids. the most important thing i ve ever learned in college was the zone system, u can learn it in one week for under 20£. i spend hours and days in the darkroom. u can build a make shift darkroom for less than 300£. it cost me 6000£ in the end and delivering pizza with my lomo.

dont assist (specially those famous one)photographer or you will be shooting like him, only if u like to be copycat , or a short cut to the dosh, but believe me u will never be happy( maybe assist several diferent photographes, but then when are you going to do your own stuff??).

to learn how to light things up, just spend time dazing under the sun, you get a good idea about lighting for sure. the rest you will find a way to get it. i build a £50 kino flood or get a flood 500w tungsten light from a construction site, legally.

dont buy any fancy equipments, my £10 seagull twin lens works great with landscape. digital camera and computer are terrible inventions if you dont have the discipline to use it. shoot film first, black and white film and make some mistakes. absolutely no retouching, buy a computer later when u have a client.

have a very very good relationship with as many model agencies as you can…..be nice to your crews and let them create something for you as well. you should have a good feeling in the beginning who you are working with. feed them even just an apple and a banana. charismatic personality get you very far.

dont copy trends or up and coming stuffs or u will always be the one catching up with everybody else. find inspiration in some unlikely resources. if i dont have to, i prefer not to use models, instead my fav. are dancers, actors…..but some great models just had it all…

dont give a damn on what everybody said, photorgaphy comes first, fashion second then the model to fit in the shot, NOT vice verse, maybe equally important sometime but not more important than photography******(only if you want to create a picture with an unique signature of yourself and create a niche of fans and clients, then follow this path)

these are everything i did for the last 8years, and i realized its a long(*)road( not so hard and painful if you are passionate about photography and have some nice pictures sometime) .

make sure you have enough to pay your rent and food, or get your frineds and families to pay for it …. just for a while and dont piss them off, they are a life saver…

and keep on shooting and no retirement plans. “

Photoshoot Tips for Models Comments Off

Best Team of LifeI recently stumbled on this great list of photoshoot tips for models (or anyone who is having their portraits taken). Thanks to Vancouver editorial and people photographer Dawn Stenzel for the list! :)

I'm sure every working photographer probably has their own list. What's on yours?

  1. Make sure you get a good night's sleep prior to the shoot. This will help prevent the un-wantedbags under the eyes as well as help give you the patience and stamina that is needed during a shoot. After all, we all look and feel better after a good nights sleep!

  2. Your normal diet should include the daily recommended consumption of water. This alone will add greatly to the look and healthiness of your skin.
  3. Striking different poses with the same facial expression does little to enhance your portfolio. Spend some time in front of a mirror learning and developing a variety of expressions. You may want to consider studying the expressions and body language of the top models in your field for examples and ideas. If you are just starting out your photographer will be able to share ideas with you.
  4. I can appreciate those models, dancers and people in the talent industry that prefer to wear as little make up as possible. However, I prefer to have a make up artist and even possibly a hair stylist on set whenever I am shooting, although this is not always possible due to the pricing package the model has chosen. I am going to include a few make up tips for if a make up artist is not present for your photo shoot.

    If you leave all your other make up at home never go to a photo shoot without your facial powder. The freshly scrubbed face will undoubtedly present undesirable highlights in the nose and forehead. If you are intent on the natural look you can find a translucent powder that will tone down the highlights (consult a make up artist for recommendations). There is only so much your photographer can do with high key lighting and you certainly do not want your images to project a shinny or oily looking skin.

    A matte look can make a big difference in the quality of your headshots. By using a solid foundation evenly blended well into the neck and upper chest area we are able to avoid changes in colors.

    Your eye shadow should be a lighter shade to avoid the "raccoon look". A lighter shade gives a flattering appearance of bringing the eyes forward rather than the unflattering deep set appearance from a darker shade.

    Be sure to carry your hair brush, hair spray, and/or gel to the shoot. Keep hair and jewelry accessories small. Hair styles can make a drastic difference in a model's look.

  5. Try to avoid sun tanning just before your shoot. Start tanning weeks before to avoid sun burn and tan lines on the day of your shoot.

The Zen of White Balance Comments Off

The real purpose of white balance adjustment is to compensate for the color temperature of the prevailing light source so that your image will show accurate color. Whether you do so by making adjustments on your camera before you shoot or on your computer after you shoot, the objective is supposed to be the same. But rather than stopping there, let’s look at some other, more creative uses for white balance adjustment.

How Can I Use RSS to Become Better, Smarter and More Attractive to the Same or Opposite sex? Comments Off

Haha.. a great new post from Alex Samuel called 10 steps to RSStocracy. If you’re not reading people blogs via RSS you really should read through this aritcle and the one called What is RSS? in my lefthand navbar.

Here are the 10 simple, painless steps to becoming an RSS user:

1. Go to Bloglines.com, which is the site I use to read news feeds. (This is where other people will object that I should be steering you towards Newsgator or Pluck or some other newsreader but let them write their own damn guides to getting XMLiterate. But if you don’t trust me, you can check out CNet’s review of some of the leading RSS readers, which covers both web-based options and readers that you download and install on your own computer.)

2. In the upper-right of the Bloglines main page, click on Register (or you can cheat and click here to go directly to Bloglines’ registration page.)

3. Complete the very short registration form.

4. Check your e-mail for an e-mail from Bloglines. Click on the validation link in that e-mail message.

5. Clicking the link will take you to a Bloglines page that says “account validation complete”, and lists a bunch of optional ways to use Bloglines. Scroll down to the paragraph titled “Finding and Subscribing to Blogs” and click on “easy subscribe bookmarklet”. (If you’ve gotten distracted en route, you can click here to go directly to the Bloglines easy subscribe bookmarklet page).

6. The bookmarklet page gives you a little bit of code that you stick in your browser’s bookmarks bar (the line just under the back and forward buttons) to make a “Subscribe to Bloglines” button. Follow the Bloglines bookmarklet page instructions for your web browser, and add the “Sub with bloglines” button to your bookmarks bar.

7. Now you’re ready to subscribe to some news feeds. Go to some of your favourite blogs and news sites (maybe the ones you have saved in your browser’s “favourites” bar) and subscribe to their feeds. (See below for details) OR

8. Use my list of feeds to get started:
* While logged into Bloglines under your own username, go to my public list of Bloglines subscriptions; click on folder titles that interest you to see which feeds I subscribe to.
* In the left-hand sidebar, click on a particular folder or feed title to preview the latest news items it contains. If you find a feed that interests you, click “subscribe” in blue button bar on the upper-right-hand side of the page.

9. Once you’ve got some subscriptions set up, go to your Bloglines feeds page to read the news as it comes in.

10. Make sure that you check your feeds regularly so you stay up-to-date. Your best bet is to add a bookmark for your Bloglines feeds page to your browser’s bookmark bar, or (my approach) make your Bloglines feeds page your web browser’s home page by entering this URL: http://www.bloglines.com/myblogs as your home page in your browser’s preferences.

My New Favorite Photographers Comments Off

Nearly every time I go out to shoot I’m confronted with the cold hard fact that I don’t know a damn thing about photography. One day recently I realized the only ‘famous’ photographer whose work I could name and was more than superficially familiar with was Ansel Adams. I’ve decided this is unacceptable and that I need to plug into a few people’s work who I love and who draw me deeper into my own obsession. This is what I came up with…

David Lachapelle
James Nachway
Tim Petersen
Celesta Danger
Lorraine Daley

… I’m new to this so I reserve the right to hate them all next week, but for now these guys have opened my eyes and I’m feeling their work.

Who are your favorites? Who else should I be checking out? How do you expose yourself to new photography?

UPDATED: Ok… a couple months later I have a few more people to add to the list. Flickr people… Brian Milo and Kevin Meredith.

Pantone’s Hot Colors for 2005 Comments Off

The top 10 “new” hot colors according to the Pantone Color Institute.

Pantone's Hot Colors for 2005

Pantone’s Forecast: Saturated color has made a splashy comeback, but to stay ahead of trends for everything from sofas to soup plates, you need to follow fashion. Turns out home furnishings and housewares take their cues from the garment industry in deciding on their palettes. We’ll help you get a jump with the top 10 new hues, according to the Pantone Color Institute. Gloxinia? Glazed ginger? You can’t make this stuff up.

RSS + BitTorrent + Your TV = Torrentocracy Comments Off

This looks pretty interesting, going to play with it later today and will let you know how it goes. Thx for the link Alex

Torrentocracy (pronounced like the word democracy) is the combination of RSS, bit torrent, your television and your remote control. In effect, it is what gives any properly motivated person or entity the ability to have their own TV station. By running torrentocracy on a computer connected to your television, you not only become a viewer of any available content from the internet, but you also become a part of a vast grass roots media distribution network.

This is not about the illegal distribution of media, but rather it’s about enabling an entirely new way to receive the video which you watch on your TV. If you ever wondered how and when your computer, the internet and your television would merge into one seemless device with access to anything and everything, then at this very moment the theme song from 2001: A Space Odyssey (“Also Sprach Zarathustra”) should be resounding through your head..

The geekier part (this is where you find out that this software runs only on Linux and is not really intended for use by normal humans :( )…

So, not only is torrentocracy a way of rethinking how you get your media, but it’s also an actual (free) software product by the same name. It is written to be integrated within MythTV, the Linux based home media server project (think Tivo on steroids). It allows you to join bit torrent (p2p) sessions linked to from RSS feeds so that any person running a capable blog can automatically have many people sharing the media they are trying to distribute. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).

Adobe Buys Macromedia for 3.4 Billion Dollars Comments Off

Adobe Aquires Macromedia for Billions and Billions of DollarsYay for standardized design and develpment tools! This is big news. I’m actually really suprised that they didn’t do this sooner. I bet they’ve been trying for a while. I was always hoping the lil guy would get lucky and that Macromedia could find a way to swallow up Adobe.

“Computer document company Adobe Systems said on Monday it agreed to buy multimedia software firm Macromedia for about $3.4 billion in stock, a move designed to extend its lead in the market for creating and distributing digital documents.”

3 cheers for the Macromedia team. You sure gave them a run for their money for a while. :) Thx for the link Sxates.

So this leaves us with one company owning A BUNCH of overlapping design tools. Which product should they keep and which one should the ditch?

Illustrator or Freehand?
GoLive or Dreamweaver?
ImageReady or Fireworks?
LiveMotion or Flash?

Personally, I’ll take the new Adobe MX CS featuring Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash, Photoshop, and InDesign.

Here is Adobe’s press release: Adobe and Macromedia

Comprehensive Listing of Del.icio.us Tools, Plugins and Add-ons for Social Bookmarking Comments Off

Do you use Del.icio.us? the great new social bookmarking tool that is all the rage on the web? Essentially is a distributed way to bookmark sites you like, add keywords to them, and share them with your online friends and contacts. I use Del.icio.us to power the sidebar of this site called “Links & Memes”.

For the more technical folks in the crowd you can slice and dice the whole database of links via tags and keywords, pull data from the site via a web-based API, and aggregate content other places on the web using RSS generated by Del.icio.us.
