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 kisses, using manual flash, mirrors in the desert and a visit to San Francisco.

  • If A Collection of Kisses doesn't put you in the mood, it isn't Alan Taylor's fault. His 28 photos of "one of the most intimate human gestures" is gathered from recent news photos from Reuters, AP and Getty.
  • Kirk Tuck was Work the Tight Crush of a house party with a Sony A7R II. Instead of a dedicated flash, he used "a fully manual Cactus RF-60 flash that's been in the studio for a while." He set the output to 1/16th power and aimed it at the ceiling for a flattering bounce light and all his shots had "a uniform density and color and required little intervention in Lightroom."
  • In Endlessly Reflected, Joe McNally builds "a set out of large mirrors (gulp) out in the desert, where the sand and the high winds live." Something to think about if you're in a reflective mood.
  • Jonathan Blaustein was in to town to judge portfolios at the Academy of Art. "The photography community, and the institutions supporting it, are clearly thriving," he writes in Impressions From The Bay Area. "The photo people here are special: creative, liberal, nice, thoughtful, smart, and in many cases, funny." Come back any time, Jonathan.

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