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. This time we look at the Miami Dolphins in black-and-white, Kopernikk, Julia Margaret Cameron, FastPhotoStyle, Silver 3 and T-MAX P3200 film.

  • Jon Willey is the NFL Insider telling "the story of life as a modern-day, professional football star." Well, several of them. All Miami Dolphins. And in black-and-white, too. Using a Leica Q. Not, in short, your typical sports shoot.
  • In Head for the Hills With Kopernikk, Charles Purdy follow the photographer and his dog into the Giant Mountains. "I make big decisions there, clear my head and always smile like a little child," Kopernikk says.
  • In Iago, or Study From an Italian, Francis Hodgson revisits this portrait by Julia Margaret Cameron with a rare mea culpa.
  • FastPhotoStyle is a fast photorealistic style transfer algorithm. "Given a content photo and a style photo, the code can transfer the style of the style photo to the content photo."
  • Gavin Seim has introduced Silver 3 for Lightroom, the successor to Silver Shadows2. "This is the most epic black and white toolkit I've ever used," he bubbles. The $69 toolkit is available for $39 for a limited time.
  • Kodak plans to reintroduce T-MAX P3200 black-and-white panchromatic film in 135-36x format (35mm with 36 exposures) for $10.99. The ISO 800 emulsion can be pushed to 3200 (hence the P) and even 6400, Kodak said.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
