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 Lucie Awards, Pittsburgh's Tree of Life Synagogue, Sacre Coeur, sunsets, Nikon Z 7 shutter shock,, a trick for Halloween and a BorrowLenses discount.

  • The 16th annual Lucie Awards were presented last night at Carnegie Hall. Among the 2018 honorees is Lee Friedlander for Lifetime Achievement Award.
  • Getty Images presents news images from the assault on Pittsburgh's Tree of Life Synagogue, mostly of the grieving.
  • In Abstracting Sacre Coeur, Harold Davis creates a high-contrast image of the Montmarte cathedral to emphasize its "arched arcades over arched arcades."
  • Ming Thein showcases the first part of his Remarkable Sunsets series, a long-term "observation project." He notes, "There's no extra post processing or manipulation," although most were Raw files.
  • Jim Kasson tests Shutter Shock and the Nikon Z 7. "Don't use the Z 7 mechanical shutter unless you want shutter speeds faster than 1/2000 or you're concerned about the bokeh effects of EFCS," he suggests. That's electronic first curtain shutter, BTW.
  • A New Digital Tool for Looking at Bruegel describes, which provides macrophotographic, infrared macrophotographic, infrared reflectographic and X-radiographic views of key Bruegel paintings in the Kunsthistorisches Museum Vienna collection.
  • Strobist David Hobby turns devilish for Halloween in Opportunity Knocks. He describes "a little prank available to any lighting photographer" that will not, if discovered, go "unrewarded," we suspect.
  • BorrowLenses is offering up to $45 off your rental order when you use the code BLSWEETS before Nov. 4.

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