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 kit lens tricks, the 2017 SECA Art Awards, the Nikon 105mm f1.4E and a luminous portrait taken with a one-light setup.

  • SFMOMA has announced the Society for the Encouragement of Contemporary Art has awarded 2017 SECA Art Awards to three photographers: San McFarland, K.r.m. Mooney and Lindsey White. The award honors Bay Area artists whose work has not been accorded substantial recognition from a major institution.
  • Roger Cicala is busy Taking Apart the New Nikon 105mm f1.4E ED AF-S after being "mightily impressed" by its test results. Inside was a surprise though. "It's like my mom's pink wired wall phone in her kitchen," he found.
  • In A portrait from the studio this afternoon, Kirk Tuck used that f4 70-200mm lens at 1/50 second with a one-light setup to capture a luminous image. The 4x6 diffusion panel doesn't produce catch lights but you won't mind.

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