Bokeh Is Not a Stable Characteristic of a Lens

I ran across a nice example yesterday of the same lens exhibiting both "good" and "bad" bokeh. I was looking through pictures taken with the old Olympus OM-Zuiko 50mm ƒ/1.8, a fine little lens (identical in design to an earlier generation of Leica Summicron, by the way) which is widely available for very little dosh. Take a look first at this lovely portrait by Konstantin Konduktorov, taken with the old lens adapted to a digital DSLR. Although there isn't "lots" of bokeh evident in the picture (...

Here and There

Another mix of photos in Paris. Seen on the Pont des Arts with Ile de la Cite in the background. People are still putting locks everywhere they can. This always reminds me of my dear friend Lisa who fought against the “love locks” and helped end them on this bridge except people still find ways. May I just say: http://nolovelocks.com A wing of the Louvre Museum shining in the sun. A beautiful shop selling gorgeous artificial plants along with other decorative items. I liked t...

Food delivered traditionally by bicycle in Tokyo

In a world of delivery motorbikes and Uber Eats bags, the sight of food being transported the traditional way is an increasingly rare sight. One only really seen in certain parts of the city. But just like the old adage about buses, after waiting ages to see one, two sometimes come along at once.

Andreessen Horowitz has backed Run The World, a startup with a timely offering: live online events

Every day, there’s another event-related cancellation owing to concern around the coronavirus. Just today Microsoft announced it will not have a presence at the Game Developers Conference in mid-March “out of an abundance of caution.” Facebook also said today that it is canceling its annual F8 conference scheduled for May over coronavirus-outbreak concerns. The last is a particularly big deal. F8 is by far the largest event that Facebook hosts every year, so it’s little wonder that it plans to h...

LinkedIn Tests Snapchat-like Stories

If you thought LinkedIn had already reached peak undesirability, you were wrong: the company is now planning to add Snapchat-style Stories to its platform. From a report: Yes, the business-focused networking app that fills your inbox with recruiter and PR spam may be getting Stories. Social media users have been suffering from Stories exhaustion for years at this point. It's a feature that works great for its pioneer, Snapchat, and for Instagram... and pretty much nothing else -- I mean, have yo...

Canon has patented a new ultra-wide 13-21mm f/2.8 lens for EOS R cameras

A new Canon patent application has surfaced, detailing a new 13-21mm f/2.8 RF mount lens for the full-frame Canon EOS R mirrorless system. There’s no word that this lens will actually see a production line, and Canon does already have a 15-35mm f/2.8L IS USM lens for the RF mount, so I think it might […] The post Canon has patented a new ultra-wide 13-21mm f/2.8 lens for EOS R cameras appeared first on DIY Photography.

The Smithsonian Puts 2.8 Million High-Res Images Online and Into the Public Domain

No matter how many public institutions you visit in a day—schools, libraries, museums, or the dreaded DMV—you may still feel like privatized services are closing in. And if you’re a fan of national parks and public lands, you’re keenly aware they’re at risk of being eaten up by developers and energy companies. The commons are shrinking, a tragic fact that is hardly inevitable but, as Matto Mildenberger argues at Scientific American, the result of some very narrow ideas. But we can take h...

You Should NOT Visit Syria Right Now

The state of the photo industry

What does this mean for the photo industry? In the past couple of years, we have seen a lot of interesting things happen in the photography industry.

Then we saw a bunch of companies drop out of major trade shows like Photokina and PhotoPlus. Companies are having their products copied and sold cheap, forcing other companies like Dynalite to close their doors...
