Bon à savoir: l’Acros revient

C’est un retour assez inattendu et une bonne nouvelle pour les férus d’argentique. Fujifilm qui avait arrêté il y a un an la production de sa pellicule noir et blanc Acros, a annoncé son retour dans une nouvelle version.

Depuis des années, la marque japonaise n’avait cessé de se désengager de sa partie argentique et avait arrêté plusieurs références de son catalogue. L’annonce en début d’année de l’augmentation de 30% des prix de nombreuses pellicules allait dans le même sens. Cette Neopan Acros 100 II vient donc contredire les mauvais présages. Pour ne rien gâter, la nouvelle Acros annonce un grain extrêmement fin et revendique la “netteté” la plus importante du marché.

L’Acros 100 II devrait sortir cet automne, exclusivement au Japon dans un premier temps. Il faudra encore attendre un peu pour voir cette nouvelle pellicule débarquer en France.

The Bookstore Project | Florin Firimitã

Florin Ion Firimitã is a visual artist, educator, and writer who traces his interest in art back to his mother’s passion for drawing and his father’s modest amateur photo lab, in Bucharest, Romania, where he was entrusted with mixing chemicals, developing film and printing black-and-white photos at the age of six. Versatile in a variety of mediums, from painting to mixed media and from writing to photography, the artist has continued to explore a wide range of creative expressions.

When I started modeling, it was just a job, and I was so excited…

“When I started modeling, it was just a job, and I was so excited—everything was so new, so crazy. I didn’t overthink anything.
Cara Delevingne

While the 20-year-old self-described tomboy was amazed by her sudden rocket into the heart of the fashion universe (not to mention by just how tough all that runway walking can be), she is setting her sights on other stars—acting, making music, inventing, Nobel Prizes—as long as there’s plenty of goofing off to be done along the way.

Melancholy in Black and White

“I would like to see your best black and white photos showing people in sadness or with a pensive or moody look. I am looking for touching photos, something I will remember. Images can be a whole scene with one or more people or a portrait photo in black and white. Toned images (eg sepia or blue toned) are also allowed in this contest, but the image must be monochrome. I hope to see a lot of new uploaded photos for my judging.” —Community judge Christian Kieffer

The Art of Photography… An Approach to Personal Expression

This is an updated and newly revised edition of the classic book The Art of Photography (originally published in 1994), which has often been described as the most readable, understandable, and complete textbook on photography. With well over 100 beautiful photographic illustrations in both black-and-white and color, as well as numerous charts, graphs, and tables, this book presents the world of photography to beginner, intermediate, and advanced photographers seeking to make a personal statement through the medium of photography. Without talking down to anyone, or talking over anyone’s head, Barnbaum presents “how to” techniques for both traditional and digital approaches. Yet he goes well beyond the technical, as he delves deeply into the philosophical, expressive, and creative aspects of photography so often avoided in other books.

Bruce Barnbaum is recognized as one of the world’s finest landscape and architectural photographers, and for decades has been considered one of the best instructors in the field of photography. This latest incarnation of his textbook, which has evolved, grown, and been refined over the past 35 years, will prove to be an ongoing, invaluable photographic reference for years to come. It is truly the resource of choice for the thinking photographer.
