What I saw somewhat recently #88: November 24, 2021

Rainbow Trout fry

The above photo is a small Rainbow Trout fry that I pulled from the creek in my yard. It looks like it may have had a run-in with a Heron, Mink, Raccoon or some other predator.

Let’s get to some random links that I managed to set aside for y’all.

  • Feeds Mage – Link up your Twitter account and this app will show you all of the RSS feeds from those you follow. Handy.
  • Frédérick Carnet – I saved this photographers website with no note as to why specifically. But great work nonetheless. I’m usually not a fan of horizontal scrolling but it works for his portfolio I think.
  • Stripe Press – This website is fantastic.
  • Fidenza – Yeah, I know, NFT blah blah blah. Read the thinking behind this particular generative art series from Tyler Hobbs. Even if you don’t buy into the way he’s selling them, you have to appreciate how he creates them.
  • Guide to NFTs – Speaking of NFTs, whenever someone asks me for background this is the article I’m currently sending them to. The pace of change in this space is so fast that it is already out-of-date. I hope they update it.
  • Darkroom etiquette in the Navy – This video shows the proper way to darkroom for the Navy. I wish I was as regimented as these officers are. Perhaps I can up my game this winter in the basement.
  • Polaroid Week – Polaroid Week has come and gone – but this pool of photos on Flickr is worth looking through. Instant film definitely has its charm and I’m thinking of jumping into this medium soon.
  • Instax Mini Evo – Speaking of instant film cameras, this new one from Fujifilm looks fantastic.
  • Ethan Moses’ 20×24″ RA4 instant photos – This is a must-see. Ethan Moses of Cameradactyl built a 20×24″ camera and some paper holders that allows him to develop the paper right in the holder. He uses the RA4 process to make instant color positives. So incredible cool. For a deep dive he was on LFPP.
  • The Marginalian – Brain Pickings, easily one of the best blogs ever, has renamed. Story here.
  • 45 years of Apple Sounds – This video, created by Apple and A.G. Cook, hit me right in the feels.
  • 24-hours in the metaverse – Joanna Stern visits the metaverse for 24-hours. Good insight into what the current state of VR is.
  • John Chiara – The aforelinked episode of LFPP mentioned John Chiara. Amazing body of work. Check out this video, this one, and this one too.
  • Logan Baker – I’ve been digging the pace of Logan’s videos. I hope he continues to just make honest videos about photography at this pace. It is relaxing.

OK, that is good enough for this installment. Enjoy!
