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 Shane Balkowitsch, Nigerian brides, more on the Nikon Z50, abstract photography, a street studio and the Sigma fp.

  • Shane Balkowitsch photographed Greta Thunberg using wet plate photography. He had a 15-minute window to do it.
  • Laura Staugaitis showcases the Contemporary Traditions of Nigerian Brides documented by Lakin Ogunbanwo. "Set against gauzy draped backdrops, Ogunbanwo's subjects are dressed for bridal ceremonies in vibrant lace bodices, sculptural headdresses and embellished tulle veils," she writes.
  • Tom Hogan has more on the Nikon Z50 Announcement, including a few more specs than released through official channels.
  • Jasenka Grujin lists Seven Interesting Abstract Photography Ideas. "The only thing that matters is that you have a keen eye for detail and that you're good at creating bold photographic compositions," she writes.
  • Joe McNally set up a Studio in the Street with a Speed-Lite 2 Plus softbox and a tri-grip reflector.
  • Sigma has announced the Sigma fp, will begin shipping on Oct. 25 for $1,899 for the camera body alone and $2,199 for the camera with the Sigma 45mm f2.8 DG DN Contemporary lens. We've updated our Sigma fp story with the new information and affiliate links.

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