This month sees the release of the Nik Collection 3 with some interesting new features. If you would like to see these in action, I’ve published a video review on my YouTube Channel which you can watch here.
I’m also aware that many of you reading this have one or more of my Nik Collection books. If you decide to upgrade to the new Nik Collection, I’ve published an addendum to my existing books to cover the new “common features” in the Nik Collection 3.
Until I can update my books, you can download this addendum for free on Lenscraft. You’ll find it in the shop (in the Nik Collection Books section)
Cole Thompson Lone Man
A little while back I shared Cole’s work in this newsletter in the “Photographers You May Not Know” section. At the time I mentioned his “The Ghosts of Auschwitz” series which I had originally seen and found amazing. Now he has a new series of work called “The Lone Man”.
I find his new series equally as inspired but in a much more uplifting way. I’d encourage you to look through his work and please don’t skip images too quickly. He has some brilliant shots.
The Most Over and Under Rated Film Cameras – Have Your Say
When I’m compiling the list of articles for the newsletter one site I check is FStoppers. They often have interesting articles even if I don’t always agree with them. Here’s one article I found interesting although I don’t necessarily agree with the list.
One camera I’d like to add to the underrated list is the Hasselblad Xpan II. I know you can buy a small family car for the cost of a good example, but it’s an amazing camera that’s a joy to use.
Now I realise that’s my view and you may have a different view, so I want to hear from you.
Do you have a film camera that you’d like to nominate as being over or underrated? To gather answers to this I’ve created a short poll in Google Forms which you can access here
If I receive enough nominations, I’ll publish the results as a future article. I think it would be insightful to compile readers opinions in this way. We have a wealth of collective knowledge that I want to tap into and share.
