Around the Adoramasphere
Around the Adoramasphere is our weekly roundup of the internet goings-on of the Adorama family.
On the Techniques and How-Tos blog, Adorama’s panel of perfectionists critique a reader-submitted photo; Fred Singer brings us 11 tips for dramatic portrait photography in the city; and Jena Ardell has some tips for creative senior portrait photography that sells.
On the Gear Guides and Reviews blog, Sandy Ramirez reviews the Pro Optic 85mm f/1.4 ASPH budget portrait lens; and Mason Resnick evaluates the Lensbaby Edge 80 Optic, the most optically advanced Lensbaby yet.
At the Adorama News Desk, Mason covers the slew of new announcements from Leica, including the M-Monochrom rangefinder – the world’s first 35mm B&W sensor digital camera, the X2 compact followup to the X1 with improved AF, and a new flagship normal lens.
On this blog, Through the Looking Glass, I discuss Google’s new augmented reality glasses prototype, which have the potential to fundamentally change the way we take pictures, and bring about a new era of an always-on surveillance mindset; we cover the upcoming Brooklyn outdoor public photo exhibition, THE FENCE, part of Photoville, which is taking Brooklyn Bridge Park by storm this summer (today is the last day to submit); and we round up the week’s photo events in NY.
