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 Unseen 2014, a three-strobe portrait setup, 85mm primes and Photogrammer.

  • In Field Report: Unseen 2014, Jörg M. Colberg covers the Amsterdam photo fair where "the focus is mostly on 'emerging' artists, artists that might break into the market."
  • In A Quick and Simple TTL Build, Joe McNally diagrams a three-strobe setup for his firefighter portraits.
  • Roger Cicala has been busy. In another installment of his Just the Lenses series, he covers Canon and Nikon Mount 85mm f1.4 (and 1.2) Primes. Mixed results, he says, "But the good news (hopefully) is we should be seeing some more attractive offerings in this focal length soon."
  • Photogrammar is Yale's Web-based platform for enjoying the 170,000 photographs from 1935 to 1945 created by the U.S. Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information and stored at the Library of Congress.
