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 black hole, Francis Hodgson, Chris Gillett, Los Angeles, Nikon Z shadow noise and Cory Richards.

  • On a related note, Francis Hodgson explores The Image in Research with the help of a couple of Berenic Abbott images. "We're getting to the place where seeing things displayed intelligibly is going to be the only way to have any understanding of them at all," he writes.
  • Headshot Photographer Chris Gillett reveals all, including numerous examples proving, as the woman who took care of him when he was a boy used to put it, "Folks is crazy."
  • Berlin photographer Christian Werner, on the other hand, avoids people in his photos of Los Angeles (which isn't easy, there being a lot of people there). He hopes to find a more secluded city to photograph, like Tokyo.
  • After a series of posts on the subject, Jim Kasson writes up his conclusions about Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 Shadow Noise. There are 13 takeaways but Number One is: "There isn't much difference, either visually or numerically, between the noise in Raw files from the two cameras."
  • Nikon has appointed Cory Richards as its newest Nikon Ambassador. Richards has just set off for Tibet with fellow Nikon Ambassador Keith Ladzinski to attempt to summit Everest for the second time, without the aid of oxygen or porters, all while setting a new route to the top of the world. You can follow-along with @NikonUSA, @coryrichards and @ladzinski on Instagram, where the two ambassadors will document and share their story as it happens.

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