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 moon landing, a world captivated, Ida Wyman, a Color Picker tip, Kerstin Rodgers, photographing the moon and film years vs. digital years.

  • In Food Is the New Rock 'n' roll, Benjamin Pineros interviews music photographer Kerstin Rodgers. She used film at first but, "Then I became a single mother and couldn't afford to shoot anymore," she says. "Digital changed all that."
  • To celebrate the Apollo moon landing, Karl Taylor shows you How to Photograph the Moon the easy way with a 400mm focal length (one way or another), a clear sky and a tripod in this 8:02 video:
  • In Film vs. Digital (Not What You Think!), Mike Johnston calculates how many years he's shot film compared to how many years he's shot digital. His numbers are 31 and 16. He wonders about you. It's easier to count our digital years (21 if we don't count scanning) than film, which started with Super 8 and still aren't quite over.

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