24 February 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 we look at a black-and-white comparison, Firefall vs. Super Bloom, color terminology and a Tinybeans discount.

  • In Comparing the Leica Monochrom to a Sony a7R II, Sarah McAlexander enlists LensRentals' Aaron Closz, Joey Miller and Drew Cicala to compare side-by-side images to see "if there is a noticeable difference." You won't believe it without seeing it.
  • Photographers are nice people, even when packed together like sardines to get a shot of Yosemite's Firefall. Sean Flansbaum reflected, "We all had a blast talking to each other. We all had a blast sharing stories with each other. It was great to network, meet new friends." Which is good to know if you run into trouble taking photos of the super bloom in Death Valley.
  • The Missing Cheatsheet For Brilliant Color Combinations goes beyond what a photographer needs to know but its review of color terms like Hue, Saturation, Shade and Tint help clarify what are usually obscure concepts for beginners. With examples, too.
  • Tinybeans is celebrating the 29 days of February this leap year with a discount on its annual $80 premium subscription to $29 when you use the code FEB29. We took a look at the intriguing service when it launched in 2014 and liked it.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
