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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Burtynsky's Watermark, Iridient Developer Fujifilm camera film styles, Nikon's fluorine lens coating and photography as a memory aid.

  • Photographer Edward Burtynsky and director Jennifer Baichwal discuss The Making of Watermark using 5K ultra high definition photography and aerial technology to explore mankind's relationship with water.
  • Iridient Developer's Brian Griffith has posted "a few of my latest attempts at reproducing some of the camera film styles (Standard/Provia, Vivid/Velvia and Soft/Astia) available on the Fujifilm X-Trans models along with a new 'neutral' style which should give a very good colorimetric using standard color reference charts like the ColorCheckerSG, IT8, etc."
  • Nikon has posted a two-minute video showcasing its fluorine lens coating. In the video one half of a lens element is coated and one is not to highlight the different behavior.
  • In The Photograph as a Memory Aid, Julienne Kost writes, "One of the greatest benefits of making images every day is that when I look back over the past, I'm often reminded of places that I've been, people that I've met and emotions that I've experienced -- all which I might have forgotten if it weren't for the aid of those still images that I made."

More to come...
