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 Stephen Mayes; Michael Rubin; Brooks Jensen, Michael Reichmann and Kevin Raber plus a wedding kit.

  • Stephen Mayes suggests "straight photography" is over in The Next Revolution in Photography Is Coming. "Digital capture quietly but definitively severed the optical connection with reality," he argues, "that physical relationship between the object photographed and the image that differentiated lens-made imagery and defined our understanding of photography for 160 years."
  • Adobe's Michael Rubin thinks that's hilarious as he paints his own version of The Future of Photography, beginning "I'm not sure there ever really has been much of a 'straight photograph'." And about that "optical connection" he writes, "The ability to modify images may be easier today (and I work every day to make better photos easier to capture using every bit of data at our disposal), but this has always been a component of photography."
  • And just to toss some sprinkles on the frosting, Brooks Jensen, Michael Reichmann and Kevin Raber discuss the Past, Present and Future Of Photography in this 42-minute video:
  • If all that just makes you want to throw your camera in a bag and shoot a wedding, take a look at The Nimble Photographer Wedding Kit, Derrick Story's kit for weddings. He's been doing them so long he could have titled it The Next Revolution in Wedding Photography Is Coming or The Future of Wedding Photography or The Past, Present and Future of Wedding Photography but he already wrote Reinvent the Wedding.

More to come...
