Around the Adoramasphere

Posted in News by Nathan Lee Bush on September 26, 2011

Around the Adoramasphere is our weekly roundup of the internet goings-on of the Adorama family.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, we covered Nikon’s announcement of the long-anticipated competitors, the J1 and V1, in the already crowded mirrorless compact camera space, and weighed in on its prospects; we highlighted some new positions we’re creating at ARC to meet expanding demand here and here (if you are interested or know of anyone who might be, please share!); and, as usual, we highlighted the week’s photo and video events in New York City.

At the Adorama News Desk, Nikon’s new compact interchangeable lens system was covered, as well as the release of Adobe’s Photoshop Elements 10.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Mark Wallace has some tips about setting up a studio in small spaces and working with speedlights; Mark interviews wildlife photographer Will Burrard-Lucas on his techniques; Diane Miller takes you through the creative possibilities of Corel Painter 12 for photographers; Mason explains how to teach children to take pictures and suggests some cameras to look consider for each age group; and Bryan Peterson demonstrates a creative portrait technique using just a sheet of fabric to enhance color in any scenario.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews blog, Mason Resnick takes the Ricoh GXR with 28mm APS out for a street photography stress test; Mark reviews the Westcott 28″ Apollo Flash Kit; and he also reviews the instructional lighting iPad app from Rick Sammon.

On Tech Tock, Mason attempts to decipher who Nikon’s 1 system was designed for, based on its unusual spec list; and Sandy Ramirez summarizes his feelings about the Pentax Q mirrorless system after he used it throughout Fashion Week.
