The Friday round-up

Welcome to our very first blog post!

Hopefully the first of many to come. The ‘Friday round-up’ aims to bring you our favourite photography bits and links (or related) from the web this week.

First off, a brilliant little idea called the 4am Project. I say ‘little’, it’s far from it, but the idea is quite magical.

If you’re lucky enough to be awake at 4am (I’ve just graduated from Uni, so 4am does have somewhat vague, blurry memories), the mind is supposed to be at its most responsive, and more open to abstract ideas and clear expression.

The 4am Project aims to capture this energy in photographic form, and display what everyone is doing around the world at that time. From beautiful sunrises to the peace and tranquility of night. Check out their gallery so far and get involved!

I stumbled across 70+ examples of beautiful night photography via twitter the other day. I think they look amazing – especially the long exposure effect photos, and the way a still picture can portray and embrace speed and movement. I particularly like ‘Light Trails’ with the red white and blue over Big Ben.

This then lead me to Digital Photography School, and more stunning long exposure images. If any of you reading this have had a go at long exposure, feel free to post your links in the comments below for me to check out (you may even get a mention in the next round-up!)

Now, I’m new to Color Confidence, and new to the world of photography. I’m very much the amateur of amateur’s in the photography world! I’ve always wanted to give it a go, so I’ll be sharing my journey with you along the way, and probably encountering all the problems you had at the beginning…

That’s the round-up for this week, if you have any suggestions for cool stuff worth investigating get in touch on twitter or facebook, or indeed comment below.

‘Till the next time!
