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 a street-style pre-wedding shoot, two SFMOMA shows, Larry Racioppo's Brooklyn and Gruber on webcam security.

  • In Street-Style Wedding Portraiture, Robin Wong offers pre-wedding shots for an old friend. "I wanted to shoot something different from the usual ultra-polished studio look with perfect lighting, Barbie-doll like make up and extravagant dresses or costumes," he writes.
  • In The Secret Streets of Brassaï & Louis Stettner, Carole Naggar reviews the two current shows at SFMOMA, presenting a generous selection of images from the two photographers.
  • In A Portrait Brooklyn Before It Was Gentrified, Miss Rosen explores the work of Brooklyn native Larry Racioppo. His 176-page hardcover Brooklyn Before: Photographs, 1971-1983 document South Brooklyn between 1971 and 1983.
  • In On Covering Webcams, John Gruber critiques Joanna Stern's recent piece on webcam security for her Personal Tech column at The Wall Street Journal. He argues your system is safe if you play by the rules. "The path to compromising Stern's cameras was like a test of your home security that starts with a request that you leave your door unlocked and turn off your alarm system."

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