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 Fred Lyon, ISO, saving digital data and multiexposure mode.

  • In San Francisco Noir: Photos From the '40s and '50s Jonathan Blaustein reviews Fred Lyon's show at the Leica Gallery in San Francisco, which runs through Oct. 21. We reviewed Lyon's notecards of these images earlier this year.
  • A lot of people are asking Thom Hogan What's the Highest ISO I Should Set? Hogan suggests, "The way to think about ISO is this: what's the lowest ISO I can set without impacting my focus (aperture) and motion (shutter speed) decisions?"
  • In Saving Electronic Records from Rot and Decay, Lorain Wang explains (in just four minutes) how the Getty Archive maintains its digital archives. "The reality is that there's no magical one-step solution for preserving electronic files," she confides.
  • Moose Peterson shows off Alaska Handheld Blurred Creek captured using the multiexposure technique he detailed a while ago. Multiexposure is a special mode on your camera in which you set the number of shots, interval and other options like gain (which can deliver better color than you might get in post production). No need for neutral density filters or that tripod, either.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
