Newsweek's Olympics Photo Blog
With the Olympics well underway, we're all enjoying the fruits of some really fabulous photography, thanks in no small part of advances in technology. However, it is still the preparatory and artistic work that's doing the heavy lifting, and the Newsweek Visions of China blog captures those moments behind the scenes before the shutter ever gets fired.
Be sure to check out Vincent Laforet's August 6th entry, showing the sheer amount of logistical preparation necessary to move six cameras, over thirty lenses and associated support equipment 8,000 miles to Beijing. Or the agony of lost work as a photographer setting up his equipment knocks over two dozen painstakingly positioned remote-fire cameras.
