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 Chinese industry, shadows in monochrome, sunset strobing, Harold Davis and Canon rebates.

  • In Made in China, Alan Taylor collects 38 images "showing some of the work taking place in China's factories, showrooms, workshops and construction sites." Looks familiar, actually.
  • Ming Thein's Shadow Play is shot on an Olympus PEN F with unedited monochrome JPEGs straight from the camera.
  • In another installment of his Strobist Lighting Cookbook, David Hobby suggests you Use Your Second Light to Hide Your First Light.
  • In Poem of the Road, Harold Davis "stepped in the middle of the road, not much of a risk as traffic is light in that part of the world. I liked the receding car and snapped the photo." He wrestled with the sky in post but there's a lot to think about in this composition.
  • In Canon Rebates -- Do They Deliver? Derrick Story finds out they (eventually) do but not quite the way you expect. Mail order rebates have always been less than reliable and we caution about counting those eggs before they hatch. Even then, as Story found out, you may just get trading beads instead of cold, hard cash.

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