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 David Paige, Soham Gupta, MonochromeImaging, landscape tools, the manual method and holiday discounts.

  • Stephanie Wade presents the Mystical Landscapes and Stylized Fashion Shots of Paris-based photographer David Paige. There's one that will raise a chuckle from you, too.
  • Diane Smyth features Soham Gupta's Eden " where nature rises up to reclaim the metropolis. "It's a dark vision of a badly ruled world now nearing apocalypse, but Gupta's project also suggests a more positive reading," she writes. "If both people and the land have been ransacked, it's fitting that nature now rises up. The next stage, perhaps, is for the people to do the same."
  • In B&W Camera, Mike Johnston retrieves a Sony NEX-6 to send to MonochromeImaging for conversion to a black-and-white only camera. It's been a dream of his to have a camera that only captures black-and-white images.
  • Landscape photographer Nicco Valenzuela list Five Life Hack Landscape Photography Tools that include clamps, arms and plates:
  • Kirk Tuck has a series of posts on some of his older black-and-white images he's been going through. No Cheat Street Photography presents a healthy selection (but look around at the other recent posts). It's a tribute to setting aperture and shutter speed, picking a roll of film by its sensitivity and manually focusing. "The manual methods required a modicum of thought, planning and an allocation of resources; you could only comfortably bring along a limited amount of film," he writes.
  • On his home page, Thom Hogan writes, "As you might have noticed, deep holiday discounting on cameras has gone quiet. I warned earlier that this would be a holiday season with somewhat less aggressive discounting and unfortunately that's being helped along by some bad supply chain news."

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
