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 Alessia Glaviano, the Nikon 105mm f1.4E again, platinum printing, 145 editing tools and the LACP street photography contest.

  • In The 'Female Gaze' in Fashion Photography Angela McKinley interviews Alessia Glaviano, Vogue Italia senior photo editor, about her fashion photography festival in Milan later this month. "The female gaze is the reassertion of the women's identity, and the idea of a different kind of beauty that is less artificial," she says.
  • The Nikon 105mm f1.4E gets its MTF Bench Tests from Roger Cicala ("Optically, it's probably the best thing Nikon has put out in several years; it's a genuinely world-class optic," he concludes) and Thom Hogan adds in his review, "This is a very sharp lens, even wide open and especially so for its other attributes (fastest 105mm telephoto to date). Indeed, it's a lens very free of most troublesome issues and it's a clear step forward over the 105mm f2D DC in my mind."
  • Mohan Bhasker discusses Black and White Photography and Platinum Printing using both RGB images and monochrome files to create the digital negatives used for contact printing the rich prints.
  • Nazar Begen has updated his list of photo editing tools and apps to number 145 now (up from the 104 that Petapixel published in August).
  • The Los Angeles Center of Photography is accepting entries for its Third Annual Street Shooting Around the World Exhibition -- 2017. Deadline is Dec. 12 with a first prize of $1,000.

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