This an interesting TED talk from Sebastiâo Salgado, a brilliant photographer from Brazil. He didn't start out in photography, had a number of high flying careers before he found the camera. Worth a watch.
If you've ever wondered about how to effectively use the dodge and burn tools in Photoshop, then have a watch of this great little tutorial. I guess that's how the experts post process their shots.
Andy Biggs is an african wildlife photographer, and here he talks about his journey as a photographer, how he first got into photography and deconstructs some of his excellent shots. Again Andy isn't somebody who started off in photography, he says in the video being a photographer was his fourth career. It's never too late to switch :-)
Ok, so this strictly isn't a photography video, it's another one from the International Space Station, but look at all that expensive camera gear stuck to the wall at the beginning of the video! Nevertheless this is a riveting watch to gain a better understanding of life on the ISS. It is ever so slightly cluttered though, maybe they need a cleaner :-)
Ted have come up with a rather cute educational video on the history of photography.
