The Pillar by Stephen Gill (Mike's Book of the Year 2019)

A fashion lately: photobooks without a photo on the cover. It's a thing. Birds as artA problem with photography these days is that many approaches are becoming trite through no fault of their own, due simply to overdeployment. Too many people taking the same sorts of pictures, and, in that way, the pictures become unoriginal and lose their incantatory frisson. Not their fault, but ours, because we're saturated.

The Samsung Sero TV rotates on its axis because people are shooting more vertical videos now

The Sero, which Samsung just debuted at CES 2020,...

How to shoot atmospheric photos of glass with just a couple of speedlights

Photographing glass can be a very tricky topic if you don’t know how to approach it. It doesn’t react to light the way that most of the subjects we shoot do, because there’s really nothing to actually light. It’s all about the lit objects that reflect off it or refract through it.

Joe Pantoliano on Working With Tom Cruise, Being Directed by Steven Spielberg, and More [Interview]

Joe Pantoliano, affectionately known as “Joey Pants” to many, wears his roles like few others from his generation. His breakout role was in 1983’s Risky Business , with the indelible role of “Guido the Pimp”, and from there he consistently made films and shows better with his very appearance. He often plays wise-cracking, quick-to anger characters bemused by the idiocy around him, and it’s this acerbic yet intelligent takes that leap off the screen. Midnight Run saw him spend much of the mo...

The Daily Promo – Cory Foote

Cory Foote Who printed it? The booklets were printed by the wonderful folks at Fireball Printing in Philly.
