One of the things I will miss most about him is his laugh. Fred had this laugh that often started a a chuckle, and kind of rumbled into a full blown laugh. You could always tell his humor was genuine, as his laugh involved his whole face, particularly his eyes, which would likewise be full of merriment. Fred Demarest, former Chairman of the Syracuse University Photo Department, passed away some weeks back. He wasn’t laid to rest right away.
Heading to Dusseldorf for a week of lighting and pictures, working with Nikon Switzerland and Nikon Germany, and some wonderful photographers, whose work you see up in the banner. I’m very honored to be included with them, and to help celebrate the ongoing 100th birthday party of Nikon. Here is the link to the overall event on Saturday September 23 and this link will bring you to news about the lecture. I’ll be giving a lecture and doing live demos. All Speedlights, SB-5000, radio TTL.
The D850 is rolling out, and I’ve been fortunate enough to participate in a small way in this world-wide release effort. Below, is a portrait of Leon, a champion longtime boxer and now a trainer. The above, and the shot immediately below were made with one SB-5000 Speedlight, fitted with a Lastolite Speed Lite 2 Plus softbox. The lens is the Micro-Nikkor 105 f2.8 for the tight portrait, and the environment below was shot with the Nikkor 28mm f1.4.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
