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 old lenses, Garry Winogrand, Davis' blue bowl series and Kelby's free course on the Nik Collection.

  • In Lenses that Disrupt the Perfectness of Digital, Derrick Story suspects "digital photography has become so precise, so perfect, that visual artists are craving something different." He suggests trying an old lens, which is exactly what Kirk Tuck did.
  • Tuck also posted an interesting piece about the class he took with Garry Winogrand, which taught him "photography could be nearly totally immersive." Winogrand, Tuck remembers, always carried several cameras everywhere he went "to train his mind to be always ready." Good training, Tuck adds.
  • Harold Davis displays Ranunculi in a Blue Bowl, "the third of a trio of blossoms-in-a-blue-bowl imagery." You can see all three together and read Orchids in a Blue Bowl to find out how he did it.
  • In Rockin' The Free Nik Collection, Scott Kelby takes two hours to show you his tips and secrets for using the free suite of eight plug-ins from Google.

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