Friday, April 14, 2017

Another day, another new camera has been announced. Most of the time the latest and greatest doesn’t actually solve any real world problems or improve the shooting experience for the average photographer in any way.

Thursday, April 13, 2017

When a camera like the enthusiast-level D7200 is due to be retired, the young upstart of a successor had better be nothing short of impressive. Nikon certainly looks to have pulled out all the stops to give its D7500 a fighting chance, dipping liberally into the feature set of the APS-C flagship, the D500. The D7500 is reported to be 5 percent lighter than its predecessor, has been given a…

The endgame for cameras is having no camera at all – The Verge – The Verge

Thursday, April 13, 2017

I’ve been reading about Gcam, the Google X project that was first sparked by the need for a tiny camera to fit inside Google Glass, before evolving to power the world-beating camera of the Google Pixel. Gcam embodies an atypical approach to photography in seeking to find software solutions for what have traditionally been hardware problems. Well, others have tried, but those have always seemed like inchoate gimmicks, so I…

The camera is getting sneakier on The Americans – The Week Magazine

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

I think I’ve started every recap of The Americans’s fifth season with a nod to the brilliance with which this show‘s cinematography reflects its conceptual content. I can’t help it. Rarely has a show more artfully married its camera quirks to an episode’s themes, and as those themes change, so do the ways the camera echoes them. Tuesday night’s episode, “Crossbreed,” is thankfully no different. It’s no coincidence, for example,…

Chicago Tribune photographer wins Pulitzer Prize for ‘superb’ portraits of child shooting victim – Los Angeles Times

Wednesday, April 12, 2017

For months, E. Jason Wambsgans sought to chronicle the effects of Chicago’s gun violence on children.

Other times, victims moved away, or were too busy for visits from photographers and reporters. But with Tavon Tanner and his mom, it was different. The…

Zhuang became an important node for me to learn from and think through photography in Cambodia, and later the region as a whole. I didn’t know it…
