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 1988, perfection, Paul Ernest, the Sigma 105mm f1.4 Art lens, converting Aperture libraries, temporary tattoos and selfie sticks.

  • In 30 Years Ago: A Look Back at 1988, Alan Taylor collects 50 photos from the past.
  • In The Perfect Photo: Myth or Reality? Emily asks Diane Tuft and Mark Maziarz about two of their images. Maziarz sums it up, "I see people get so caught up in the technical aspects of getting the 'perfect' photo that they lose focus on what's truly important: the soul, the feeling that a photograph gives you."
  • In her The Art of the Personal Project series, Suzanne Sease looks at Paul Ernest today. "Using the camera and his appreciation for American Realism, Paul has developed a style he calls Mise En Scene Realism," she writes. "His focus on composition and lighting are primarily drawn from painters such as Wyeth, Rockwell and Johnson but with an influence from his former career as a Creative Director and designer."
  • Joey Miller takes a First Look of the 'Bokeh Master' Sigma 105mm f1.4 Art Series Lens. "If you were thinking about buying the Nikon 105mm f1.4E, skip it and buy this instead," Miller suggests.
  • In Easy Converting of Aperture Libraries Using Photos, Derrick Story found the path of least resistance after buying a new Mac.
  • In How to Design Temporary Tattoos, Adobe dispenses some practical advice but forgets to mention how to print the your (photorealistic) tat. Just pop some Silhouette Temporary Tattoo Paper in your inkjet. $10 for two 8.5x11-inch sheets to make tattoos that last "a day or two."
  • Kailla Coomes found The 10 Best Selfie Sticks. And they aren't cheap.

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