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 McNally in Prague, the Samsung NX Mini, cleaning film for scanning and a model release story.

  • in Why I Love Joe McNally For More Than Just His Photography, Scott Kelby shares McNally's account of meeting a 16-year-old photography student in Prague. "Joe honors the people that helped him along the way by helping so many others along their path," Kelby writes, "and by passing his knowledge, his passion, and his heart to anyone he can and he touches people's lives in ways that go way beyond his incredible photography."
  • Kirk Tuck kicks the tires of the Samsung NX Mini before taking time off from his blog to finish his novel.
  • The first step in scanning film is to clean it but don't whistle for the maid. Affordable Old Photo provides some cleaning advice but remember there are two sides to film: a fairly scruff-resistant base and a pretty delicate emulsion. We prefer compressed air fired in short bursts at some distance rather than physical contact.
  • For the Want of a Model Release is something of an ongoing horror story, at least for the subject of the Getty stock photo used in a N.Y. State Division of Human Rights campaign for the HIV positive.

More to come...
