Bert Stephani does a video review of the Fuji X100s in Brussels. A very nice discussion and tour through the city shooting two women in various settings. His use of a small corded off-camera flash is brilliant. [via Zapong]

This is a great behind the scenes look at Christopher Wahl, one of the top portrait photographers shooting now. The piece by 16×9 is great as is Wahl’s work. The last piece of the show is on swelling ball bearings, another topic unrelated. [via PetaPixel]
This is a wonderful look into the life (and house) of artist Gary Baseman. I’ve been following his graphical work for many years and no doubt some seeing this will recognize certain characters from illustration work he’s done for alternative and mainstream magazines. The retrospective he’s talking about will be at the Skirball Cultural Center [...]

West Cornwall, Connecticut. Loren and I snowshoed up to the Pine Swamp beaver pond a few days ago. It was extremely cold (about 12F) but there was enough snow and while it was post-holed in places it was snowshoeable with our rather aggressive MSR mountaineering snowshoes. This is a small dam downstream of the main [...]
