In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at stopping down, using an iPhone on vacation, Pier 24's new portrait catalog and the advice business.

  • In A Look at Stopping Down, Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz show you "how the lens 'sees' a point of light and how stopping down improves it" by using OLAF to photograph that point of light as it mutates. Both 35mm primes and a zoom are shown.
  • N.Y. Times contract photographer James Hill took the family to the Amalfi coast for a little vacation but forgot his dSLR. His iPhone 4 came to the resuce and in Snapping Good Photos With Your Phone, he details what it could and couldn't do.
  • Pier 24 Photography has just published a catalog detailing many works found in its 2012-13 exhibition of portrait-based photography titled About Face. The 186-page linen-covered hardback includes 137 photographs and essays by Philip Gefter, Sandra S. Phillips and Ulrike Schneider and is available for $40.
  • The advice business is not all it's cracked up to be.

More to come...
