Not totally photo related, not just a journal. A bit of both.

President Obama's official portrait

Barack Obama, © Pete Souza

Read on today that the new official portrait for President Barack Obama, taken yesterday by Pete Souza (the newly announced official White House photographer) was shot with a digital camera. It is the first time that an official presidential portrait wasn't shot on film.

And it was a Canon. a 5D Mk II: 105mm, F 10, 1/125 sec, ISO 100.

So, while the CSI folks all use Nikons to shoot their fake crime scenes, Pete Souza will shoot the White House with Canon gear. I can deal with that trade off. ;)
