Colossal: Drones Rigged with LED Lights Dramatically Illuminate Landscapes at Night.

Neat as they are, it’s another technique that’s going to ruin the wilderness experience for us all. Drone racket *and* LED lights. Ed Abbey’d be out there with a shotgun, methinks.

Kickstarter: The Lomography Daguerreotype Achromat 2.9/64 Art Lens by Lomography.

Adobe Voice & Slate Blog: A Photographer and Chef’s 6 Steps to Taking Better Food Photos.

Good tips, if you dip your toes in. Artificial light often becomes a time-devouring balancing act. A simple white reflector (or you can crumple foil over a piece of white foamcore if you need a different character to the light) in opposition to a window, makes realistic tableaux.
