Charlie Higson has launched a competition to make the official trailer for his new book The Fallen, the latest in his The Enemy zombie series. This isn’t a one for fainting types, though – a key criteria is “plenty of gore”.
The way film photographers feel about digital photographers may be the way daguerreotype photographers feel about the film guys. Working with dangerous chemicals, buffing out silver coated plates, spending an entire day preparing for, taking and developing one shot; that’s what daguerreotype photographers love to do.
