  1. Nitro® for macOS

    Interesting new photo-editing (and organisation?) app. A bit short on details so far, but I’m hoping it does everything I dream of.

  2. Intrepid Camera

    A nice bunch of things, like large format cameras and LED-powered enlargers, handmade in the UK. (via The Online Photographer)

  3. theprintspace | Art Printing | High Quality Photo Prints

    Someone recommended this place for getting prints of photos, but I forget who.

  4. Café Royal Books

    Lovely series of small photo books. (via the Guardian)

  5. The Online Photographer: Color Management Made Very Simple (for Beginners and Others)

    I was surprised how readable and understandable that was, given how my eyes usually glaze over at this stuff.

  6. The Online Photographer: My Second Article for

    It’s such a pleasure reading his excitement about this article, and the difference between his blog posts and a New Yorker article. Lovely article too.

  7. Catalog all your data on Disks, DVDs, and CDs with NeoFinder!

    Looks pretty impressive, for organising music, video, photos (Exif, IPTC, XMP data, and a map). For Mac, plus iOS apps for searching your database. (via Ask MetaFilter)

  8. Marc’s Place - SetEXIFData

    Mac app front end to exiftool, for setting Exif data on photos and videos, including using a map to set their location. A bit harder to see existing Exif data nicely. (via Colin Devroe)

  9. My current photo library management solution – Colin Devroe

    Using the Mac Photos app for viewing only, and keeping the originals in dated folders.

    …when you start off knowing nothing about cars or cameras. (via Things Magazine)

  11. Monochrome conversion of Sony mirrorless cameras

    I love this idea, replacing the sensor on a digital camera with a monochrome one. (via The Online Photographer)

  12. Using an iPad for Photography Workflows: A Complete Guide – The Sweet Setup

    I barely even look at photos on my iPad but I liked Marius Masalar’s guide.

  13. Alec Soth: Photographic Storytelling | Magnum Learn

    $99 online video course, recommended by Craig Mod.

  14. The Online Photographer: Best Film Cameras for Newbies

    Re “Mike’s Comment” below the cameras, I bet there’s a similar sweet spot in the development of most technologies – cars, computers, others that don’t start with “c” – and that it should have a name.

  15. The Online Photographer: Ten Iconic Photographs: No. 10

    I’m enjoying this series of posts. The background and context is always more interesting than I expect writing about a single photo to be.

  16. What’s the Opposite of a Cellphone Photo? - The New York Times

    Lovely portraits in a park by Bruce Polin. (via The Online Photographer)

  17. Portraits - Washington DC Photographer Stephen Voss

    I love some of these. A nice reminder that “portraits” don’t have to be headshots. (via The Online Photographer)

  18. The Online Photographer: The Remarkable Persistence of 24x36

    Really good history of why “full frame” digital cameras have a sensor size of 24mm x 36mm, dimensions set in 1913.

  19. The Online Photographer: Best Comment Ever

    “The endless upgrade cycle, the more and more laborious and tedious mastery of imaging software, the solid belief in technical improvement and control as a means to achieve success, all of this leads one further and further away from any possibility of making original or authentic work.”

  20. Olympus PEN-F

    Purely because it’s a lovely review of a camera. Nicely written, detailed without being nerdy-in-a-bad-way, and open to a change of mind.

  21. Art — Detroit Photographic Company

    Nice photos by Roy Feldman. (via The Online Photographer)

  22. David Thorpe - YouTube

    Camera reviews (of Micro Four Thirds cameras) by a sensible-sounding British man, as opposed to an over-excited “Hi guys!” American describing cameras as “sexy puppies”. (via The Online Photographer)

  23. Zno - next gen photobooks, Layflat Photo Books…

    Because I came across these a couple of weeks ago and then forgot the name, unsurprisingly. (via The Online Photographer)

  24. The Online Photographer: How To Buy Lenses

    A nice summary of a series of posts about camera lenses, for future reference when/if I’m feeling flush.

  25. The Online Photographer: LR Replacement Photo Editing Software

    Lots and lots of thoughtful comments discussing replacements for Lightroom. The closest to a consensus might be Capture One, with Affinity Photo as a Photoshop replacement.

  26. Adobe unveils all-new cloud-based Lightroom CC, rebrands old application ‘Lightroom Classic’

    This doesn’t make me feel good. Wondering if I should jump from Lightroom now (to what?) before becoming stuck in something harder to get out of. (via The Online Photographer)

  27. Abandoned States: Places In Idyllic 1960s Postcards Have Transformed Into Scenes Of Abandonment : DCist

    I’m a sucker for lined-up “now and then” photos and these of holiday spots in the Catskills are nice. (via The Online Photographer)

  28. Gerhard Steidl Is Making Books an Art Form - The New Yorker

    Profile of the German book-maker, a description that undersells this article. (via Russell Davies)

  29. Cody Cobb

    Lovely landscape photography. (via The Online Photographer)

  30. Strobist: Lighting 101

    How to do photography lighting. A really nice, clear introduction.

  31. continuum | Flickr

    Although I love Chris Dorley-Brown’s photos, I hadn’t seen this series he’d done before. Photos, both by him, of the same London locations years, or decades, apart. Nicely done.

  32. Interview with Chris Dorley-Brown | The Great Leap Sideways

    Lots of interesting things about his great photography, and about London, in this 2012(?) interview. “London is really still cleaning up after a war that ended in 1945.”

  33. Headshot Hunter | Compare Actor Headshot Photographers

    I’m not sure why I’m surprised this exists, but it does. The search/browse form’s a bit confusing, but still.

  34. I’m Google

    Lovely Tumblr of photographs, each one similar to the previous, but slightly different, gradually changing.

  35. chris dorley-brown

    Some lovely photos of mostly east London. Good colours and more. (via The Online Photographer)

  36. A Visit to the Treasure Vaults

    Some good stuff about how Kodak was often too early with digital camera technology, not too late, and was no good at marketing it.

  37. - Featured Collections

    Sure I’ve said this before, but I hope Rightmove, Zoopla, and/or estate agents are archiving photos. It’d be an amazing resource for historians.

  38. Reading Right-to-Left |

    James Bridle on form. “I know people don’t read books like they used to, and they don’t think like they used to, but I struggle to care. … I’m feeling more sure of [the internet’s] cultural value and legacy, and more assertive about stating it.” Also, that reading a landscape right-to-left stuff.

  39. Timo Arnall - People using phones, today in London.

    Some lovely animated gifs from Timo. Hypnotic.

  40. Teju Cole (@_tejucole) • Instagram photos and videos

    I’m really enjoying his series of images about the Mona Lisa.

  41. Light, landscape, lives, Kate Kirkwood

    Really lovely photos from the Lake District. Simple but gorgeous. (via The Online Photographer)

  42. Freelance Jun14: How I paid my mortgage by chasing internet sites that stole my work - meeting report

    One photographers’ experiences of successfully chasing down copyright infringers, online and off. (via @mildlydiverting)

  43. The Online Photographer: The Culture of Photography

    Both for the topic – about how the different kinds of photography are changing – but also as an example of a blog with routinely great (moderated) comments. It’s also wonderful that Mike Johnston pulls out the best comments at the end of each post.

  44. BLDGBLOG: 100 Views of a Drowning World

    I love these images; click through to the Tumblr for more, but linking to this for the nice commentary too. Love them.

  45. Kiev’s fatigue

    Really good photos of people in Kiev. Maybe taken before the recent fighting. Just waiting, tired. (via The Online Photographer)

  46. Photography, hello — Software ate the camera, but freed the photograph by Craig Mod

    So many quotable bits. And it’s about more than cameras. About the uncomfortable but fruitful position of straddling technological shifts. About the value of a new product that simplifies only a tiny number of steps. About the importance of the network to story-telling.

  47. Photo scanning made easy. We collect from you | Vintage Photo Lab

    They scan your old photos. Not extortionate, given how long it’d take to do yourself. (via Noisy Decent Graphics)

  48. Time travel on Behance

    I rather like these, the artist inserting herself taking a photo into old photos. (via Kottke)

  49. HINT.FM: The Art Of Reproduction

    I like this idea - making a famous image out of a mosaic of different versions of it found online - but i hate that needless faux-3D tiled effect. Odd. (via The Online Photographer)

  50. Implications

    “Andreas Gursky allegedly makes ten pieces a year. Ansel Adams said twelve good photographs in a year was good production.”
