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 Mariana Vincenti, cameras vs. eyes, more Zone System issues, photo hacks and a Sigma rebate.

  • In Venezuela, Empty Rooms Tell Stories and Mariana Vincenti finds them inspiration for her photography. "It seems empty. Everywhere you go -- in the streets, in the classrooms, everywhere," she tells Remy Tumin. She left herself, years ago, returning to find her room just as she left it. "You only have 23 pounds. What do you decide to take with you?"
  • Ming Thein considers the Practical Differences Between Cameras and Human Vision in a repost worth reconsidering. "Dark areas must be less saturated to appear 'natural'," he observes. But variable saturation isn't a feature of digital captures.
  • Jim Kasson continues his evaluation of The Zone System and Digital Cameras with a few other problems digital imaging presents. Like color, clipping and exposure tools.
  • Jason Row suggests 11 Cheap and Fast Photography Hacks. How many do you already know?
  • Sigma is offering $100 rebates on its Art lenses through June 18, available at both Adorama and B&H.

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