SPM Issue 4
Our featured photographer this month is Mary Bartnikowski, who lives on the road, 365 days a year. She gave up a lucrative photography business in Silicon Valley to travel the world and document the lives of the people she meets. She has a powerful story to tell (and she’s a great teacher) so don’t miss our interview with her.
Speaking of travel, Stuart Forster a photographer and writer from the UK wrote a tutorial about how to do street photography while traveling. He’s a tremendous writer and photographer so it we’re pleased share his contribution.
With baggage restrictions and just plain old travel hassles there’s a big movement to keep photography simple when traveling. The advances in small camera technology and tablet devices make this easier than ever. So I added a piece about traveling light and post processing on the road with only an iPad.
Vic Schmeltz a, Leica enthusiast from the Washington DC, area wrote an excellent hands-on street review of the Leica X Vario. He took some really nice images when testing the camera so take some time to read his review and enjoy the photos.
Finally, our Flickr Shooters of the Month are back. The SPM Flickr Group has only been around for a few months and already it has over 10,000 images. There are a lot of very talented photographers submitting their photos every day, and they’re making it very hard to choose which ones to publish in the magazine. It’s a thrill to publish their images. With each image is a link to the photographer’s Photostream so you can link directly to view more of their work.
