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 Argentinian gauchos, Dan Winters, 35mm film, Filmborn and LensRental's $12,000 giveaway.

  • Greg Funnell and Amanda Barnes went Riding With the Gauchos of Argentina. It wasn't easy. "Almost every gaucho we meet has broken their back at some point."
  • Zack Seckler interviews Dan Winters. The piece includes Winters's portraits of Will Ferrell, Laura Dern, Denzel Washington, Tom Hanks, Jonathan Franzen, his father and Helen Mirren. "People come and ask me to make pictures for them. Every single time I feel incredibly grateful that someone has asked me to do this, because it's my true passion in life," he says.
  • John Defeo's An Ode to 35mm Film includes a favorite shot from 14 different film emulsions. "Film is an important part of our heritage and I would hate to see the art form lost to history," he writes.
  • Casey Cosley reviews Filmborn app from Mastin Labs that provides film emulation on your iPhone. But wait there's more like Custom Camera Kits you can assemble from four viewfinders, three virtual lenses and nine film emulations to make a kit tuned for street shooting or landscapes or portraits, etc. "Filmborn also educates digital natives on the techniques and history of film," the company said.
  • LensRentals is Giving Away $12,000+ in Camera Gear on April 29. "Partnering with Sigma, B&H Photo & Video, Mac Group, Music Bed, Creative Live and more, we're offering a top of the line camera set up with all the fixings," the company said.

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