I used to make the Tiger Zoo a regular stop on my “Pattaya Loop” workshop and have taken dozens of clients to this location.  No more.  First, they put bars up in the one are where we could photograph the tigers without glass or bars impeding the shot, and second the tigers are living in deplorable conditions which seem to be getting worse over time.  At this place tigers are treated like objects, like they have no life or deserve no life of their own.  The Tiger Temple is worse, and I choose to no longer support both places. This article reinforces my views.  If you truly care about tigers, stay away!

This elephant gets some mighty large caps. But did they have to say it made him look like an “Elephant Pimp?”  Really?  What would make someone say that other than an immature writer still working from his mothers basement?

This survey of over 500,000 images from a wedding site has some interesting if meaningless stats.  For instance, it claims Iphone users have had more sexual partners than those using Blackberries or Android phones.  Other stats that make a lot of sense is that overwhelmingly the people who were photographed with a DSLR ‘appear’ more attractive than those with a camera phone or point and shoot.  It’s a fun read, but internet junk reading at its finest.

This is long awaited.  Adobe releases it’s Lightroom 3.2rc and ACR 6.2 upgrades which now supports the new Sony NEX-5 and corrects a host of bugs that were plaguing the earlier issue of Lightroom.  I’ve personally tested this and it solves most of the issues and works better.  This upgrade you’ll want to do.  You can get the Lightroom 3.2rc upgrade here , and the ACR 6.2 upgrade here .
