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 photos of the decade, photography trends, Stephanie Galea, David Hobby, a Nikon D750, post-processing and Kirk Tuck.

  • In Photos of the Decade, Alan Taylor presents 55 images you've seen before. And will want to see again. Even if, as he puts it, some of them "may contain graphic or objectionable content."
  • Lex van den Berghe highlights some Photography Trends of the 2010s. Each year gets a "trend" and there are even runners-up. "We remain thoroughly impressed by the unexpected ways photography has evolved over the past ten years and we cannot wait to see what this brilliant and innovative community has in store," he writes.
  • In Tangible Moments of Elegant Beauty, Devid Gualandris showcases the fashion shots of Maltese photographer Stephanie Galea.
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Strobist Lighting Cookbook with Red State, Blue State, which discusses creating "evocative light" with flash.
  • Christopher Malcolm explains at length Why I Bought a Nikon D750 in 2019. The length is due to his serious consideration of other options, which makes the piece all the more interesting. Compare and contrast with The Online Photographer reader recommendations for a Casual Old-Timey Cam.
  • In How Post-Processing Began, Roger Cicala talks to David Horan from the University of Memphis Department of Art, about photography pioneers Oscar Rejlander and Henry Peach Robinson.
  • Kirk Tuck packs for The Last Job of the Year, reflecting on what a year it's been for him. He shot "about half the number (or less) [of jobs] than I shoot in a more typical year." But for this last one he's still packing "a good attitude and a smile."

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