Age of Inglorious Excess

Roger Cicala, the lens guru whose blog is the only must-read on the PhotoInternet for me, some time ago declared the Sigma 35mm ƒ/1.4 Art (available in five different lensmounts) to be the sharpest lens he had ever tested. (I reviewed that too.) Roger has an optical bench at his disposal. As he is the founder of Lensrentals, he even has the unheard-of luxury—crucially—of being able to test a number of samples and plot them. This is why he doesn't recommend the $1,500 Sony FE 35mm ƒ/1.4 ZA (for S...

This holiday season, Brogan is refusing to “hide part of myself and be inauthentic” with family

As the holiday season nears, we asked a series of influencers what about their deepest, darkest year-end hopes and secrets–in addition to what they hope to see under the tree December 25. Logan Fletcher aka Brogan moved to New York a few years ago from Minnesota to create his chosen family–and spend time asking strangers on the street if he can pet their dogs. The pup lover (“the gay category kind AND our four-legged friends”) is an active supporter of New York’s local drag queens and nightlif...

Facebook, Twitter Shutter Pro-Trump Network That Used AI To Create Fake People and Push Conspiracies

On Friday, Facebook and Twitter shut down a network of fake accounts that pushed pro-Trump messages all while "masquerading" as Americans with AI-generated faces as profile photos.

The Year in Clouds 2019

The NY Times shares a selection of cloud photos taken by members of the Cloud Appreciation Society. The photos above are by Rod Jones & Jeanette Brown. Clouds, their manifesto says, are not signs of negativity and gloom, but rather “nature’s poetry” and “the most egalitarian of her displays.” If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’m a bit of a cloud nerd myself (e.g. see my Sun & Clouds Story). My favorite cloud pic I took last year (and perhaps even of all time) is this shot of so...

Furthermore, without ever intending to, I’ve become an opinion columnist, a political pundit, and a travel writer, in addition to being deeply versed in photography and art.
