THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS | A PRO PHOTO & VIDEO BLOG

Around the Adoramasphere

Posted in News by Nathan Lee Bush on December 18, 2011

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

At the Adorama News Desk, a writer highlights the new Olympus Micro Four Thirds 12-50mm zoom lens with weather sealing.

On the Gear Guides and Reviews blog, Mark Wallace reviews the new GR Digital IV enthusiast compact from Ricoh; and Mark reviews the Koredoko iPad app, which allows you to pinpoint your photos on a map.

On this blog, Through The Looking Glass, I highlight the newly renting Panchro Primes from Cooke, affordable but sophisticated PL Mount lenses, which also transfer metadata to select Digital Cinema Cameras; I share a new superwide Canon L fisheye zoom lens in our arsenal, which is the only lens allowing both full-frame and circular fisheye effects; and, as always, we divulge the week’s photo and video openings, workshops, talks and networking events.

On Tech Tock, Mason Resnick announces the launch of the Flashbus Tour DVD, starring David Hobby and Joe McNally, for all those people that missed it.

On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, contributor Mark Rockwood demonstrates how to recreate 1920s glamour portrait lighting; Mark takes you behind the scenes for part two of his start to finish shoot of a photo book cover, with a byzantine lighting setup and on-the-fly mockups; Allen Rokach and Anne Millman have tips on holiday party photography; and Mason dons his citizen journalist hat and captures a story that had eluded the local media, all in under an hour from shoot to upload, thanks to batch processing in Photoshop Elements.
