Ken & Katie celebrated their marriage on the beautiful grounds of the Old Millhouse in Slane Co. Meath. They requested black and white candid shots only. Their decision to go for this style allowed me to capture the wonderful natural and relaxed feel of the day.
Canon became the last of the major imaging manufacturers to enter the "mirrorless" compact system camera category this morning by introducing the new EOS M, a portable camera with a digital SLR-size imaging sensor that uses small interchangeable lenses.
According to officials from Canon USA who we met with last week, the Canon EOS M uses the same 18-megapixel APS-C CMOS image sensor as the one in the recently released Canon T4i digital SLR.
Those officials emphasized, however, that the Canon EOS M is aimed at a different customer than the Canon T4i. Where the quick-on-the-draw T4i with its five frames per second shooting speed is for aspiring prosumers who might use it to capture amateur sports, the EOS M is designed for "the creative videographer."
Auto de Fe, the iPad app-based journal of long-form photojournalism, has announced the Inquisitive Photography Prize fund, offering four prizes, totaling $5000, to photographers submitting proposals to the magazine. The winners will be announced in the summer of 2013, according to Jack Laurenson, Executive Editor of Auto de Fe.
To be considered for one of the prizes, photographers must submit a proposal for a story or project. If accepted for publication in Auto de Fe, the project is automatically shortlisted for the Inquisitive Photography Prize (IPP). Two finalists will be chosen from each issue until there are 16 finalists. The editors will then choose the winners of a Gold Prize of $3,000; a Silver prize of $1250; and a Bronze Prize of $750.
