Every once in a while, I come across a photographer who's simple joy in takiing pictures comes through in the work. Paris Visone, once a student of mine from AIB is like that, she sports a camera grafted to her hand... photography is so much a part of her life and identity, her photography reflects a pure, honest reality that you seldom feel. Alex Morrow is another. Alex is a student, her comments are below, but she started her "365 Photos" project- self-assigning a photo a day, because she loves photography and loves the process of taking photographs, and wanted to build it into her daily life.

I've had a few questions lately about the i1 Match software, and how to use it to run a monitor calibration. Here's a quick walkthrough:

Working with lenses, and evaluating lens quality and performance can be, on the one hand, one of the easier things in photography to quantify. Optics is a well-understood science, there have been few breakthrough developments in lens construction since as far back as the 1950s. It’s been said that there have really been no discoveries in optical science since the ‘20s, in fact- although the introduction of metallic multi-coatings and glass formulae have certainly come a long way since the ‘60s. Getting performance numbers for lenses is almost as straightforward as hooking up a race-car to a dynamometer. The results are pretty much irrefutable.
However, in spite of that lenses elicit some of the more emotional reactions of any part of our gear. How many times have you heard a photographer talk about their favorite lens, the lens they just “love”? For me, it’s my Nikkor 105 f2.8, from around 1970, and you know, I can’t really even tell you why. I simply love the look of the lens, what it does to the subject, the sharpness, the color, even the way it throws objects in the background out of focus. Try testing for that.
