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 cut food, Andreas Houmann, Jim Kasson, X-Pan and a contest.

  • Susanne Sease features Cut Food, the personal project of Beth Galton. It all started with a burrito cut in half. "My premise was to create imagery which looks as if it is happening magically, but as real as possible," she says. "Our approach is very low-tech using gelatin, glue, Crisco, scissors and saws while fabricating each object."
  • Danish portrait photographer Andreas Houmann tells how he got a cover and a spread of actor Mads Mikkelsen in just 10 minutes.
  • In Previsualization in Photography, Jim Kasson refers to Minor White's concept of pre-visualization/post-visualization rather than Ansel Adams's visualization. He demonstrates an alternate approach to making photographs, promising "your photography may improve if you don’t hold on to the craft too tightly. "
  • In The X-Pan Rebirth of Fujifilm X-Pro1, Sergio Musel details his 3D insert to create a mask on his sensor for a 65:24 aspect ratio. The article, from three years ago, includes sample shots. And the comments suggest post-processing alternatives to creating panoramas, of course.
  • LensCulture is now accepting submissions for its Black-And-White Photography Awards. Deadline is Oct. 18.

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