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 World of WearableArt, Mt. Lassen monochromes, the Intrepid Enlarger project, a BMW M2, San Francisco Noir and a wide angle webinar.

  • Sometimes you need a good laugh and Scenes From the World of WearableArt Competition provides a few today. The fashion show runs through Oct. 14 and these 27 photos collected by Alan Taylor show why.
  • Derrick Story is Shooting Monochrome at Mt. Lassen. "I set my Olympus OM-D E-M1 to Raw+Jpeg (Superfine) and enabled the Dramatic Monochrome Art Filter," he writes. That did the trick.
  • Film Printing in the Digital Age previews the Intrepid Enlarger project, a Kickstarter campaign launching Oct. 4 by Intrepid's Maxim Grew. Grew has developed a portable, inexpensive light source that clips on the back of any 4x5 view camera like a film holder, effectively converting it into an enlarger.
  • Ming Thein shoots The 2018/9 BMW M2, Midterm in some dark garage probably because he doesn't live near a shopping mall, which is, of course, the best place to shoot BMWs.
  • Jonathan Blaustein reviews San Francisco Noir, a book of San Francisco photographs by Fred Lyon. Blaustein reviewed Lyon's show at the Leica Gallery in 2016 and, while he has quibbles about the book's production values, he still loves the images.
  • Chris Marquardt will talk about The Creative Challenges of Wide Angle and What to Do About Them in a free Rocky Nook webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 3, at 11 a.m. PDT.

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