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 Omar Imam, DigiBees, shooting negatives with a mirrorless camera and what an eyepiece cap does.

  • In A Syrian Refugee Captured Real Lives and Surreal Dreams, James Estrin presents the work of Omar Imam who found himself and other refugees "overphotographed, but underseen." So "he staged and photographed scenes from their memories, fears, dreams and hallucinations" after talking to them for weeks.
  • Nino Batista takes a First Look at DigiBees, the new digital strobes from Paul C. Buff.
  • Derrick Story gives us a peek at his mirrorless negative copy setup in Easy Negative Scanning with Capture One Pro. The Capture One Pro instructions easily translate into your software of choice, BTW.
  • Tieme Pool explains why you might want to use the Eyepiece Cap that came with your camera. The short version: to prevent light leaks during long exposures.

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