A/V SoundSlideShows

A/V- Simple Sound/Slide Shows will be an audio-visual web widget for the masses, a tool which synchronizes sound and images online, built for the needs of small public radio stations and independent producers.

It’s just in planning/possibility stage right now, but this player is our proposal to the Knight News Challenge; read it, rate it, review it.

You Suck at Photoshop

They’re already into Season 2, but if you can’t keep up, go back to the basics, My Damn Channel You Suck at Photoshop #1:

Some background from Laughing Squid:

Josh Quittner recently wrote an article for Time, “The Photoshop Guys Revealed!” unmasking the creators of the enormously popular and hilarious Photoshop tutorials “You Suck At Photoshop”. The 10 episode series (Season 1) on My Damn Channel was created by Matt Bledsoe and Troy Hitch (Troy does the voice of Donnie) of the creative agency Big Fat Brain, who designed the My Damn Channel website and are the guys behind the series “Tim after Tim”.

This, sad to say, is the Hearing Voices brain trust:

Remember Me

Carolynne St. Pierre and her sonConcord Monitor photojournalist Preston Gannaway won a Pulitzer for her shots in a series of articles which “chronicle the death of Carolynne St. Pierre, a Concord NH woman who wanted to leave her children with a record of her final months.” The online version is this beautiful photo-audio slideshow called “Remember Me.”

400 Fish

C’mon, bait your line. Let’s go smelt fishin’ on the ice. Ten shacks on a frozen river are filled with ice fishermen for ten weeks each year. Owner Steve Leighton provides the bait; his patrons bring the beer; and the fish take care of the rest. Produced by Grant Fuller of the Salt Institute for Documentary Studies, premiered on Weekend America, “What Are You Gonna Do with 400 Fish?” (5:13 mp3):

While you’re listening, check the photos of Sarah Breul, also of SALT, who tagged along to Leighton’s Smelt Camp on the Abagadasset River in Bowdinham, Maine, and took these Image of Ice Fishing…

Iraqi Kurdistan

Iraqi KurdistanMediaStorm: Iraqi Kurdistan by Ed Kashi is a photo-portrait of Iraqi Kurdistan made from photo stills into a flipbook-style animation .


“Iraqi Kurdistan is an expansive look into the daily lives of the Kurdish people of northern Iraq. These images provide an alternative perspective on a changing culture, one different from the destruction and discord that dominates so much media coverage of the region. Here are policemen seated on the floor, eating lunch and laughing, old men taking care of their fields and young girls celebrating at a suburban birthday party.

There is also hardship and tribulation, to be sure; the Iraqi Kurds endured generations of brutality under Saddam Hussein. His genocidal campaigns cost close to 200,000 lives.


Blaise Aguera y Arcas of Microsoft Live Labs Photosynth gives this TED talk about their software. Photosynth “can access gigabytes of photos in seconds” and integrate related images from all over the web into a single expandable, collapsible, explorable whole:

UPDATE: ABC News 20/20 ran a piece on Kevin. Thanks for all your comments, however, this is NOT Kevin’s site. I’ll forward your notes to him, but do visit his web works at The Rolling Exhibition and Kevin Michael Connolly.

Pigeon Point Lighthouse

From Flickr user MumbleyJoe, Pigeon Point Lighthouse near SF, CA: “Once per year at the Pigeon Point Lighthouse they shut down the weak insipid modern presumably electric light and switch over the the 5 kerosene lamps and fresnel lens of the original, as it was 135 years ago.”

Child’s play- Fatah & Hamas

An aid worker I met based in Gaza sent me this, titled: “Children playing a game called ‘Fatah and Hamas'”:

Gaza jids with toy guns

Here’s one I shot in Jursalem:

Jeruslem kid pointing toy gun at camera

Would love to do a thing on childern and play violence. The problem I have seeing a kid with a gun is that they will both eventually mature.

Artificial Eye Maker

Artificial eyeballPhotojournalist Colin Mulvany, of the has this nice flash a/v slideshow on an Artificial Eye Maker. From the Spokesman Review:

Ocularist Kim Erickson is an artist. But his pieces don’t hang in museums. In fact, his masterpieces go unnoticed by all but their owners. Erickson, like his father before him, handcrafts plastic prosthetic eyes from his office in downtown Spokane. “My best work is invisible,” he says.
