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 Henry Wessel, Tom Hegen, Capture One 12, stopping down your lens, the Fujifilm GFX 100, storing Raw files online, wedding clients, the state of the industry and #HocusPhocus.

  • Henry Wessel's monochrome images invite us to Stop, Observe, and Appreciate, writes Stephanie Wade. The images from SFMOMA's collection depict "life as it happens -- the mundane parts, the on-the-road minutes, the light-filled observations."
  • German photographer Tom Hegen captures the glow of Dutch LED Greenhouses. Shooting from a helicopter at night, Hegen captured the yellow and purple glow of the geometric planes that contrast with the night's darkness.
  • Kevin Raber has published the first two parts of his video series Capture One 12 With Drew and Kevin. That would be Phase On product manager Drew Altdoerffer.
  • Roger Cicala lists some Things You Don't Know About Stopping Down Your Lens. He compares the Zeiss Milvus 35mm f1.4, Sigma 35mm DG HSM Art and Tamron 35mm f1/4 SP to illustrate his points. "My point in all this is simply that even three lenses that are very similar -- same focal length, superb image quality, expensive primes -- have slightly different behavior stopped down," he writes.
  • Thom Hogan has published his Fujifilm GFX 100. "The bottom line is that the GFX 100 creates very compelling files," he writes. And has a ball showing off a few of them.
  • Jasenka Grujin lists Seven Options for Storing Your Raw Files Online. "Storing Raw photos in the cloud can be quite problematic because various photo storage utilities don't accept Raw files, such as Flickr for instance," she writes. But these seven options do.
  • In Shooting for Consistency, wedding photographer Vanessa Joy reveals the secrets of what clients want and how their looking for it. In a word, Instagram.
  • Andrew Molitor considers The State of the Industry! Oh my. "We're back to people who Just Want Pictures and people who Like Cameras," he writes, happy that the fad of "the Internet and the sharing of photos" is over.
  • Adobe has launched Photoshop's Daily Halloween Challenge: #HocusPhocus, , a daily creative challenge for Photoshop artists. Today's theme is "pumpkin."

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