Photo withdrawn after child prostitution claim.  Across the globe people are being increasingly sensitive to how children are portrayed in the media, internet, and social networks.  Still, some artists push the limits past the point of what many see as unacceptable.  This “international superstar” of a photographer is allegedly the Czech Republic’s most important photographer.  I’m speechless.  I’ve written on the subject before with my piece Lolita Scourge which has turned out to be a very popular short essay on the subject.

Photographer Refuses to Take Portraits of Facebook Bullies.   An interesting stand. With all the competition that’s sure to be in any good sized city, do you think she might have served herself and her beliefs better by still shooting their portrait and then taking the face to face opportunity to discuss what was bothering her?  Just seems silly to handle it the way she did.

Cops Confiscate Cameras at Ohio Congressman’s Town Hall.  Really?  Under what authority?  I hope someone takes the effort to sue this jerk of a Congressman for enough to set a strong example to others.  This sort of silliness shows just how much bad judgment a single politician can have.  Is it any wonder our country is in trouble with people like this running things?  Stand up for your rights before you lose them, actions like this are becoming more common than we’d care to admit.

The Surprising Way a Photographer Found his Stolen Camera.  This is VERY interesting.  This professional’s gear was stolen, and through a tracking website called Gadgettrak.com a year later he was reunited with his stolen camera gear.  With serial numbers in the firmware of most every significant electronic item, this seems to be an excellent way of getting your gear back if stolen.  Especially with cameras where the serial number is embedded in the exfil data attached to every image.  Post the image anywhere on the web, and Gadgettrack.com can find it.  Idea of the year!
