10 January 2016

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, a rare Sunday Horn, we look at Lightroom's 10th birthday, choosing a new Nikon dSLR, visual overload and Marvin Newman.

  • John Nack, who was there for the birth, celebrates Lightroom's 10th Birthday, quoting his blog entry Jan. 9, 2006 about the unfinished release (in contrast to Apple's less humble announcement of Aperture) and linking to the public beta demo (with George Jardine):
  • In Consumer, Pro, DX, or FX?, Thom Hogan suggests a way to decide between Nikon's D7200, D500, D750, D810 and D5 dSLRs with "your choice boils down to this: consumer or pro build, DX or FX sensor size. Don’t make it harder than it has to be."
  • Ming Thein was Dealing with visual overload "after being lulled into a state of half-hearted inactivity by uninspiring light and a fairly pedestrian subject, we were suddenly handed great light, rapidly changing conditions and the same pedestrian subjects come alive. He and the rest of his master class consequently managed to come away with a few inspiring shots.
  • In Marvin Newman Beyond the Single Image, Sarah Moroz explores Newman's fixations, which he turns into series of photographs. The Howard Greenberg Gallery in Manhattan has a few on exhibit right now, too.

We've also updated our Calendar over the last few days and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
