In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at composed compositions, Ctein on printing, an artist book and what could occupy the space between Sony's and Nikon's flagship dSLRs.

  • Here's two for the price of one. Alasdair Gillespie talks about design principles in creating Compelling Photographs while Joe McNally talks about "the inarticulate rush of unfettered enthusiasm we retain for the click of the shutter" in Growing Up, Growing Old. Where Gillespie poeticizes about the woman in red walking in front of him, McNally flops to the cold cobblestones to shoot a ballerina. Parallels in perfections perhaps.
  • In Ctein on thinking like a master printer, Pascal Jappy interviews master printer Ctein, who suggests you evaluate the print rather than your monitor's portrayal of your image. And if that leads to a lousy looking screen image, you're on the right track.
  • Harold Davis publishes a description of his Kumano Kodo portfolio, which is "an artist book and portfolio of images that astutely blends old-craft hand traditions and materials with and cutting-edge new technologies to create an exquisite limited edition art book and art object that is completely unique." Intriguing idea. Why, we wonder are we giving away Friday slide shows?
  • A couple of diglloyd readers wonder if there's a Window between Sony and Nikon D820, inspiring Lloyd Chambers to exhort Nikon to develop a dSLR with an EVF and in-body stabilization while pointing out the flaws in the new Sony's ergonomics. Just to get your blood going after the holiday.

More to come...
