Tuesday 17 December 2013

It's a mixed bag this week news-wise as in the main it's still quiet on the product front, although the new owner of Kodak has committed itself to doubling the number of images printed by making it easier for consumers to print their smartphone photos.

In less encouraging news, AP has learnt that Ilford Imaging Switzerland is now no longer trading. The silver lining to this dark cloud that UK inkjet paper maker PermaJet has stepped in with plans to sell its own version of Ilford Galerie paper.

Talking of things photo paper related, there's been an fascinating, ahem, development with regard to film photography. We know there's a revival of interest in the medium but now it seems sales of darkroom processing  printing products  are at a five-year high.

Elsewhere, there's been a remarkable discovery - images of Scott's last and tragic Antarctic expedition have been restored after having been found in a hut used by the doomed party.

That's about all for now.

Reader Gallery Online Photo Of The Week

AP's art editor chooses his favourite reader image from the past week's uploads to our Reader Gallery.

Again I found myself torn between two images this week. However, because they were by the same photographer, thelearningcurvephoto, I felt my decision was a little easier than in the past.
Conscious that I appeared to be favouring abstracts, as much as I loved the composition and reflection of 'Ashbridges Bay Toronto Canada Breakwall' I chose 'Backyard Flowers In Black And White 13'.

I particularly like the fact that the sunflower is not a perfect shop-bought specimen, and that being shown in black & white emphasises its tones and imperfections.

As it's part of a series, I'd be interested to see more.
