"A Collection of Unexpected Photography"

Heute wieder mal ein interessanter Link zu einem Online-Fotomagazin namens "FILE".

Informationen der Macher:

"What FILE Is
The purpose of FILE is to collect and display photographs that treat subjects in unexpected ways. Alternate takes, odd angles, unconventional observations - these are some of the ways photographs collected in FILE reinterpret traditional genres. We leave the Kodak Moments to the family album, the glossy fashion spreads to Vogue, and the photo finishes to ESPN. Rather than taking the well-trod paths, we veer off to get a different perspective. Confused? Browse The Collection. The photos say it better than we can.

What FILE Is Not
FILE magazine is not a photoblog, photo challenge/contest, or group photo album. FILE does not publish tips on taking photographs or provide evaluations of photo hardware or software. There are are many other sites that handle these topics better than FILE ever could.

apatrick, the Photo Editor and Flash Chimp, is a working photojournalist in Northern California. Contact him using the feedback form.
Beerzie Boy, the Content Editor and Webslave, is an Information Developer at a large technology company. Complaints regarding spelling or grammar, site layout, or nitpicking about other tedious details can be flung at him via the feedback form.

Where FILE gets its photographs
The editors at FILE magazine keep their eyes peeled, and when they see something they like, politely request to include it in The Collection. FILE also gladly accepts unsolicited photographs. Details on submitting your work are on the Submissions page.

How FILE is made (a.k.a. colophon)
FILE's design and implementation would have been impossible without the assistance of two generous guys: the illustrious designer Greg Storey, of Airbag fame, who designed the logo, look, and feel of the site, and HTML-CSS guru Ryan Irelan, who turned Greg's vision into a tidy set of templates. This design and set of templates were taken by FILE's web lackey, Beerzie Boy, who massaged, crumpled, puzzled over, and ultimately only slightly mutilated them in his largely successful attempt to get our content stuffed inside them.
For the geeky or curious, what follows are the nuts and bolts of the operation. Of the regularly updated pages on FILE, only the front page is hand coded in HTML and CSS; The Collection, The Projects, and The Contributors sections are all managed using Movable Type. The Projects are all created using Flash 8 and Todd Dominey's amazing Flash plug-in, Slide Show Pro. Images are adjusted using -- what else? -- Adobe Photoshop CS2. And if you're wondering why FILE looks great on a Mac, it's because both Apatrick and Beerzie Boy are Mac Nazis to the core. Oh, and we're sorry if FILE looks crappy in Internet Explorer; we recommend you try using a real browser."
