  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Dang I’m Old

    Purely because I laughed out loud at the end.

  5. The Online Photographer: Finally, I Get To Say THANK YOU

    This brought happy tears to my eyes. A nice guy moving to a bigger house, with better office space, because he works hard on a good blog.

  6. 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.

  7. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Photo Essay (Part I)

    I love this photo essay of Mike Johnston getting a reconditioned pool table installed. So much skill and attention to detail. Also, it makes me wish I was there with them all, hanging out, chatting. I could happily read this site even if it never mentioned photography.

  8. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: A Little Site

    Just a nice post on the finances of running a blog as a job - advertising, Amazon affiliate links, selling books, etc. Often precarious.

  9. The Online Photographer: (OT) All You Need for Great Sound

    Suggestion for great-sounding iPhone/iPad amp and small speakers. More suggestions in the comments.

  10. The Online Photographer: (OT) How Do You Build A Starship-Building Organization?

    About last September’s first conference by the 100 Year Starship foundation, starting to work out what kind of organisation would be required to launch a starship 100 years from now.

  11. Implications

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

  12. The Online Photographer: Set Those Expectations Low

    “Photography is a superb hobby, one of the best. It’s when you try to make a living at it that it is so likely to resist you. I don’t think other hobbies have this problem. I mean, consider, say, fly-fishing, or building plastic model planes. Very few people who do those things assume they’re going to ‘go pro’ someday. Very few people try. It doesn’t generally come up.”

  13. Interpreting Black and White, Part I

    I really like the differences in how people treated the same black and white photo.

  14. The Online Photographer: What I Would Get If I Were Starting Now

    I like this guide to how to start out in photography, particularly the bit about buying initial equipment and then not even looking at possible new kit for five years. Just do photography, don’t shop.

  15. The Online Photographer: The World’s Best Photography Magazine Tries a Different Revenue Model

    For the bit about “vampire” publications, which rely on the journalism of others. eg, ‘The Week’. I reckon, when/if increasing numbers of traditional publishers charge money, there will be more of these vampires — well curated, re-written content, without original journalism, on a tiny budget.

  16. The Online Photographer: Open Mike: Jazz Starter Kit

    One jazz-lover’s guide to getting into jazz, what things to listen to. (I like guides to a field by people who know something, even if it’s impossible to be objective about it.)

  17. The Online Photographer: Mike’s Darkroom

    I’ve been really enjoying these posts about constructing a darkroom. Not because I want one, but because reading about the layout decisions made by someone with lots of experience is fascinating. There’s so much a novice would miss.

  18. The Online Photographer: The Best Photography How-To Books

    Excellent, a short list of practical photography book recommendations by someone who knows their stuff.

  19. The Online Photographer: Old TIME, New TIME

    A nice comparison of two copies of Time magazine, from 1968 and today.

  20. The Online Photographer: Panasonic GF1 vs. Olympus E-P1, Part I

    Solely for this quote: “These two [bundled] applications just can’t possibly be as lame and useless as they appear to be … They can’t be—right? Because if faced with a choice of working day in, day out in one of these environments or picking up trash by the side of the freeway with a pointy stick guarded by a fat man with a shotgun and a big wad of tobacco in his cheek, I would need time to decide. They both seem like they’d be torture, but least in a chain gang I’d be outdoors.”
