Tickle Your Fancy’ includes a round-up of between three to five links to articles from around the internet that have specifically interested us during the course of the week. Ones that we feel are relevant to your interest in photography and art.

Just to explain the title for this section ‘Tickle Your Fancy’ is an English idiom and essentially means that something appeals to you and perhaps stimulates your imagination in an enthusiastic way, we felt it would make a great title for this new section of the site.

Take Action Now – Save the Freedom of Photography – Petition

Share

The Freedom of taking photos in public places is under attack. Until now, in most countries in Europe you were safe to take and publish photographs that are taken from public ground – This is called Freedom of Panorama. But not all, if you take a night time shot of the Eiffel Tower for example, according to French law, your rights to use them are limited. The illumination of the Eiffel Tower is considered to be a separate artistic installation. Because France does not have full freedom of panorama; copyright restrictions make it illegal to publish these pictures without proper authorisation.

The Guardian reports “Freedom of panorama is the unrestricted right to use photographs of public spaces , without infringing the rights of the architect or the visual artist. Wikipedia only uses freely licensed images. Therefore, this valuable exception to copyright is necessary in order to allow Wikipedia to freely depict public spaces on relevant articles. Most European Union countries enjoy full freedom of panorama. However, in some European countries, such as Belgium and France, this freedom is restricted.

The impressive Atomium in Brussels, for instance, is a beautiful structure, but pictures of it are restricted from being freely used. As a result, the Wikipedia article about the Atomium does not feature any photos of the original structure. You have to make do with an image of a model replica in Austria”.

I am truly delighted to be working closer with The Royal Photographic Society (The RPS). Founded in 1853, for more than a century The RPS has existed to promote photography and image-making and to support photographers in realising their potential, irrespective of their level of knowledge, equipment or skills.  The Society also acts as a public advocate for photography and photographers. The RPS produces a range of publications. The Journal (I have written in the past for this title) is the world’s oldest photography magazine and all members receive a free monthly copy of the latest issue.

The RPS have just announced four new bursaries to help students and other photographers to realise projects across the still and moving image. Recipients can use the funding for any aspect including travel, equipment, website or mounting an exhibition.

The Guardian – ‘Camera-makers focus on adapting to smartphones’ market surge’

Share

Interesting article by my friend Charles Arthur (Contributing Writer for The Guardian, previously the Guardian’s Technology Editor) this morning. He talks about the demise of camera sales since 2006, starting there of course with film.  Arthur discusses the research & development and money that is being poured into smartphone development. He cites my partner (Kevin Carter’s) test results in DXOMark’s testing in October where the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus reached the top of the camera site – see here.  

The conclusion to this piece focuses on sensors, smartphones are in need of larger sensors.  "Sony announced recently that it’s going to increase its production of image sensors by 45% over the next 18 months to meet growing demand. Sony’s imaging division (which makes the sensors) is one of its most profitable divisions. Its customers include Xiaomi, the fast-growing Chinese smartphone maker, and Apple". Interesting read, go here to read in full.
