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 Oye Diran, the camera market, interesting times, color filter array tests, a junk store find, managing multiple cameras and Tamara Lackey's AMA.

  • Grace Ebert features the Conceptual Portraits of Oye Diran which center on "singular figures set against calm, scenic backdrops or surrounded by flowers and fruits."
  • In The Camera Market, Generally, Thom Hogan looks at the broader picture of the hardware game.
  • Kirk Tuck reflects on these Interesting Times in the world of photography as manufacturers push "full frame sensor cameras with excessive amounts of megapixels for a market in which nearly 100 percent of camera users just want to post photos and video to the Web."
  • Jim Kasson tests Optimal CFA Spectral Response of CCD and CMOS sensors to see which color filter array is more accurate.
  • In The Box From the Junk Store, Ernest Zarate remembers finding 100 4x5 glass plates at a second-hand store in Santa Paula, Calif. in the 1070s. He's still got some of them.
  • Derrick Story has a few Tips for Managing More Than One Camera. Including your smartphone.
  • Photographer and Nikon ambassador Tamara Lackey did an Ask Me Anything on Reddit yesterday. She offered to discuss travel photography, animal/wildlife/pet photography as well as the non-profit organizations Beautiful Together and Beautiful Together Animal Sanctuary.

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