It’s Wednesday afternoon and all that most people can think about is how many days, hours, minutes remain until the weekend. But not you, you’re a photographer! You’re never bored, but are always plotting your next photo shoot or researching the new D-SLR you’ve had your eye on. We’re right there with you, friend. To keep the wild world of photography on your mind midweek, here’s our roundup of what’s been happening in it lately.

- The Nikon D-Movie Screening Room presents its latest short film, by Director of Photography Ellen Kuras– of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind fame. (Still from video above.)

- Tamron presents a timely “Back to School” photo story by photographer Wendy Saunders, who used the Tamron 18-270mm lens to capture one little boy’s big day. Saunders’ photos encourage parents to get creative on this day beyond the ubiquitous lunch pale in the doorway shot.

- Exposure Manager announced their new Pro Lab Direct Printing System for sports and event photographers.

In keeping with our summer “travel” theme (yes, summer is still upon us, albeit hanging on by a thread), we’d like to point you to the new book, Ghost Ranch and the Faraway Nearby (University of New Mexico Press), which features the photography of Santa Fe photographer Craig Varjabedian. In it, Varjabedian illustrates a hauntingly serene look at Northern New Mexico’s iconic Ghost Ranch (former stomping grounds of painter Georgia O’Keeffe), along with essays to accompany his stunning photographs (one penned by Ms. O’Keeffe all those years ago).

You’re never bored, but are always plotting your next photo shoot or researching the new D-SLR you’ve had your eye on. We’re right there with you, friend. To keep the wild world of photography on your mind midweek, here’s our roundup of what’s been happening in it lately.

-Stll Life With… posted a great, comprehensive and beautifully illustrated piece on the 2009 International Conference on Food Styling & Photography Master Class that she attended.

-onOne Software released their Plug-in Suite 4.5.1, and it’s now available for immediate download.

-On view right now at the Getty Center is “In Focus: Making a Scene“– photographs “drawn exclusively from the J. Paul Getty Museum’s collection,” which “make no pretense about presenting the world as it exists; instead, they are the productions of directors and actors who rely on stagecraft and occasional darkroom trickery to tell stories.”
