21 July 2017

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 Jonathan Castellino, using color gels, the 2017 World Aquatics Championships and a stolen gear story.

  • In Joyful Abandon, Jonathan Castellino shares a few of his engaging images of urban ruin. "I have a deep respect for unseen places. My ambition is to maintain no preconceptions about what my experience will look like, there."
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Lighting 103 series with Use Color to Evoke Time and Place. It takes a lot of color in your gel to affect the scene, he points out. "Don't be shy. Take a chance."
  • Alan Taylor presents 24 photos in Scenes From the 2017 World Aquatics Championships. And they're about as close to a pool as we've gotten this summer. Nice underwater and night shots, among them. But what we really like in a spread like this is the various ways different photographers approach the same subject.
  • Diane de Guzman reports wedding photographer Amanda Tung and her assistant Linda Dang had $15,000 of equipment stolen from their unattended Honda CR-V. Worse, the captures from a wedding that day went with the gear. San Francisco recorded 25,000 car break-ins last year. We're beginning to think it's more than precautionary to remove your memory card from your camera after a shoot around here. And worth remembering that even if you haven't recorded the serial number of your camera, it's in the Exif header of the images you've shot with it.

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