Vivian Maier : street photographer

by Vivian Maier

Reviewer Rating:
5

From the 1950’s to the 1990’s, Vivian Maier quietly photographed her surroundings creating hundreds of thousands of photos that she didn't tell anyone about.  These images are more than snapshots, although they do have that feeling about them. Her composition is breathtaking and she truly shot everything around her from...

Photo Editing Online

This is what happens when you spend too much time playing with photo editors

Sunday, the CTC will host the second of two classes on Photoshop Elements. The class will be fun, as I am teaching it and my snaggle-toothed charm will eventually win you over. But do you have photos you need to edit and you don't own Elements? Alternately, do you feel compelled to make photos of yourself look ridiculous? Come with me into the internet for some free online options...

Our favorite at the CTC used to be Picnik, but they were bought by Google and rolled into Google+, so, unless you're one of the 15 Google employees currently using Google+, you're probably not going to find that very useful. Luckily, the internets are full of other options:

Andy Goldsworthy rocks my socks!

collage of andy goldsworthy work

Every once in a while I happen upon something that just blows my brain right out of my head, my first encounter with the art of Andy Goldsworthy was just such a moment.

Andy Goldsworthy is a British environmental artist. He uses nature as his canvas, his tools, his inspiration and his medium. Watching a Goldsworthy creation happen can be awe inspiring or cringe worthy depending on how nature is feeling about Andy that day. His books show the final beauty but you have to watch the DVD, Rivers and Tides Working With Time, to understand the real dedication that this man has for his craft.

It’s official; our world has become inundated with instruments of intrusion, invention, interaction, and instant gratification that have changed the way that we interpret our environment. This i‐volution has affected photographers as much as anybody, giving us more ways to see, capture, and share the images that surround us. iWorld invites you to respond to the “i‐zation” of our nation with your best interpretation, inspiration, innovation, or illustration of the world that you see.
