Can you see the chair? — by Joe Reifer

  • Quite possibly the most overlooked, least talked about component of the digital darkroom is where you sit. The official chair of Joe Reifer Photography is the Steelcase Think Chair. Yes, it’s expensive, worth every penny, and just as good looking as the chair pictured above.
  • I’ve made it easier to subscribe to this blog — on your right is a link to sign up in your favorite feedreader, or via email.
  • Mark Hobson praises the fuzzy edges of naturalistic photography over on The Landscapist
  • Curves is one of the most powerful, versatile tools in Photoshop. Charles Cramer goes over his combination of tonal curves combined with layer masks on Luminous Landscape.
  • Recently picked up two amazing albums, both from 1974: Taj Mahal Travelers psych masterpiece August 1974 is beyond Pink Floyd at their weirdest. Like a mellow version of the out parts of Can’s Tago Mago. Essential for NNCK fans. And Harmonia’s Live 1974 is a must for fans of Neu! and Popol Vuh. Check out Aquarius Records in San Francisco for the hard to find pysch and noise releases.
