Polaroid Week on F’log (Slack Interview)
Photosharing sites could learn a lot from what Andrew Long’s been doing over on Fotolog’s “Daily F’log“. Andrew’s proving that the smart hand of a dedicated editor can filter and create a timely presentation (blog-style) that benefits any online community. (Fwiw: I’ve contributed a book review and the interview below to F’log).
He’s been hosting Polaroid Week this week, for which I had a conversation with Mike Slack. While people aren’t the predominate subject of Mike’s work, I think of him as the explorative cousin of a street photographer - heading out there, not knowing what he’ll find.
Have a look, and subscribe to Andrew’s feed to gauge the (Brazilian!) pulse of Fotolog.
For StartersWays of Working, a 10-step introduction to the ins-and-outs of street photography with only nine steps. Or, look at Resources & Discussions.
