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 Federico Alegria, Mark Broyer, auto masking in Lightroom, brands, the Zone System and a new Harold Davis book.

  • Matt Golowczynski asks Does Brand Matter When Buying a New Camera?
  • Jim Kasson considers The Zone System and Digital Cameras with a few tests. He argues that as Ansel Adams conceived the Zone System, it doesn't apply to digital cameras. "There is no shoulder in a digital sensor; its response is virtually linear until clipping," he points out.
  • The Art of Photographing Flowers for Transparency is a forthcoming title from Harold Davis. "The is a serious book in terms of its pedagogy, as the techniques I use in my transparent floral work are useful in many aspects of digital photography," he writes. He links to a couple of articles describing the techniques while we wait for publication.

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