Shocking photography (literally) & more

  • Adobe TV went live last week.  It features a profile of Adobe’s Angela Drury, an accomplished photographer who moonlights as a product manager.  Look for the Photographer channel on Adobe TV for tons more.
  • I’m shocked, shocked to report on The Stunning Camera.  Bryan O’Neil Hughes, Photoshop PM and camera store veteran, reports "experimenting" with this kind of thing in his past life: "We even rigged one up to the door knob of the men’s room.  Then someone had the bright idea of running the capacitors in parallel and well, it worked but it ‘snake-bit’ him….essentially the current arced right through his thumb leaving two seared holes.  Seriously." [Via Joe Ault]
  • That chintzy look: “When I looked at the wallpaper and the wallpaper looked at me, we instantly fell in love."
  • On an occasionally related note, Thierry Bouët chronicles people in their beds (click "au lit" in the top nav bar). [Via]
  • Jan Sochor is a Czech-born freelance photographer who splits his time between Europe and South America.[Via]
  • You might not guess it from the title, but this NYT photo essay on how manhole covers are made in India is really interesting.
