This past Saturday, just before sunset, the lights went out in New York City. Well, a big piece of it anyway. A massive blackout left a large section of Manhattan dark, and across the river in New Jersey, a timelapse photographer captured the whole thing on camera.

The full blackout lasted about five hours and affected a swath of Manhattan that ran from Midtown as far up as 69th street on the Upper West Side. People were trapped in elevators, traffic lights stopped working, subway platforms went dark, broadway shows spilled out into the streets, and half of Time’s Square’s

An illustration from the patent application filing that details the closed (left) and opened (right) states of the lens cap.

If there’s one thing you can count on as a photographer, it’s that you will, at some point in your career, lose a lens cap—or three. This issue has been addressed over the years through both first-party and third-party solution, but Canon seems interested in creating its own solution, according to a recent patent application.

Japanese Patent Application 2019-113645 details a barndoor-style lens cap that folds open when shooting and collapses shut when the lens isn’t in use. As translated

It's Prime Day—a day of blowout deals from Amazon for people who have Amazon Prime, obviously intended to get more people to sign up for Prime. There are many pages of deals and many hundreds of items on sale.

A few things I can personally recommend:

Dyson Animal Vacuum Cleaner: I've written about this awesome thing in the past, and after a number of years I'm still very satisfied with mine. It's a good buy at $600 in my opinion, but why not pay $350 instead?

A Vitamix: I wish all products were like the Vitamix, a throwback

Sony has today announced a new, full-frame mirrorless camera, the 4K video capable A7R IV. Sony of course basically invented the full-frame mirrorless market, and while a lot of competition has come in the space in the last year with the Canon EOS-R, Nikon Z, and Panasonic S lines, Sony is still the big kahuna in the space.

Some Thoughts on Lenses: A Different Perspective?

I recently arrived at what I think is a worthwhile insight into the lenses I use. The material that follows should become instantly obvious once read, but the several photographers I discussed this with all commented that they had never thought of the matter that way and that it was worth some thought. Those comments inspired me to share my viewpoint here.

A lot of my shots are taken with relatively long focal lengths, typically from 60mm to 135mm on an APS-C camera. I have always tried to obtain maximum sharpness in my pictures, and whenever I evaluate a lens

Why I Got Rid of My Photography Gear, Revisited

I had everything I could ever need, all the dream gear. Broncolor lighting, the latest professional Canon cameras and all the faster canon lenses. I had the latest Apple laptop, tethering equipment, software, c-stands, tripods, light modifiers, Polaroid cameras, all the gear I could have ever dreamed of.

I had it all, and at that time it was good—better than good, it was extraordinary. So why did I later decide to get rid of everything I worked so hard to obtain, and only after a few years after having it?
