How about a quicky? I’ll be a man of few words, this time (who said “thank goodness” at the back of the room ? 😉 ) Much to do this week-end, so I’ll let the links do the talking, and hope you enjoy the content.
OK, let’s kick this off with a fun topic. Quirky lenses, full of character and interesting craftsmanship, on modern cameras. What’s not to like?
Hat tip to Philippe for this one.
Next up : The Fuji X100V Is My New Favorite Adventure Camera. I enjoyed this piece because it’s written by a non specialist. Togs obsess over technicalities. Non specialists focus on usability. To my eyes, that sort of feedback is grounding.
Speaking of grounding, if you’re into video and want a functional tour of the current pick of cameras, this is really interesting too 🙂
Ending this section with a little fun 🙂 A trip down memory lane with the origin story of the brand that revolutionized photography in the past decade.
When Frank Field sent me the photographs for the Redwood Forest post, we noticed colour casts on the uploaded versions. So Frank has written a hands-on guide for exporting photographs for the web 🙂 sRGB is the Color Space of the Web: Never Forget It!
Stephen Shore: “Photography Isn’t Very Good at Explaining” This is subjective but, to me, fascinating. According to Shore :“A photograph can, however, touch on the emotional center of a place. It can also describe.” We’ve tackled this issue multiple times and I agree entirely with those words. A photograph can evoke or describe, but it’s moment-in-time quality precludes it from being able to fully describe causality, explanation or storytelling. Incidently, this piece is illustrated with beautifully nostalgic images.
In this video, Sean Tucker goes beyond the usual rules of thumb such as the rule of thirds and the rules use in painting and totally unapplicable in the field, such as golden spirals, using visual science to guide us through the composition in some of his photographs.
The Greatest Grand Canyon Timelapse We’ve Ever Seen The title says it all. For lovers of landscape photography 🙂
Illusory Photographs of Mountain Landscapes Are Flipped 90 Degrees to Reveal Human-Like Profiles. Some of these take a bit of imagination, but they are still lovely photographs 🙂
‘coz the times, they are changing : https://www.instagram.com/museumofcryptoart/?hl=en So, this person buys NTFs and then posts them on Instagram, as a sort of museum. The idea of purchasing purely virtual something because it’s unique and then posting it to the web is interesting, right 😉 What do you think of the works themselves?
Two A7R V spec sheets “leak” but they’re a bit difficult to believe. If rumours are true, the next iteration of the A7r range should be better at video and at … dance beats 😉
That’s all folks. Please let me know what you’d like to read about and please share this with your friends to help us grow 🙂
