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 how to shoot food images, the marginalization of Canon and Nikon, VSCO filters and Tuck's portrait revealed.

  • In How to Create Mouthwatering Images, chef-turned-photographer Oliver Brachat offers six tips for capturing the perfect food image. Number three is particularly appetizing: "Get started with easy and picturesque things you already have at home, like tomatoes, garlic, apples, etc."
  • Thom Hogan suggests The Walls Are Closing In on Canon and Nikon with "Leica's resurrection, Fujifilm's incessant retro mirrorless offerings, Sony's excellently rethink and position with the A6xxx and A7 series and now Hasselblad's mirrorless-medium-format-for-everyone announcement of the X1D."
  • In How To Use VSCO Filters To Create Beautiful iPhone Photos, Kate Wesson shows off the "elegant film-like presets within the VSCO app." She writes, "VSCO is one of the few apps that's known for its subtle and natural looking filters. Inspired by classic film, the VSCO filters keep your edits clean and simple with a beautiful timeless quality."
  • Oh, and Kirk Tuck finally reveals the portrait whose setup he so thoughtfully detailed recently. "Sorry for the delay between the first blog and the example photo. I wanted to receive permission to use my client's portrait before posting it here. Not necessarily required but very appropriate," he explains.

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