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 pricing social media photography, a survey of Nikon 1 lenses, installing photo extensions in iOS and a tax court ruling favoring photographers.

  • Susanne Sease discusses Usage and Pricing of Photography in Social Media, noting, "I found quite a range in pricing with free use from amateurs to inexpensive stock to photographers shooting original content making the best rates."
  • In Nikon 1 Lenses, Thom Hogan links to his reviews of two Nikon 1 lenses, adding, "But in thinking about those lenses I've also realized that Nikon needs a slightly better lens plan than it has produced so far."
  • Derrick Story's five-step tutorial in Supercharge iOS Photos App with Photo Extensions shows how he added Camera+'s editing tools to his Photos app. Note that copies of images edited in Photos app don't retain the Exif data of the original. We have confirmed the behavior here.
  • In Tax Court Ruling Is Seen as a Victory for Artists, Randy Kennedy reports on a memorandum opinion by the U.S. Tax Court affirming that even part-time artists can deduct their expenses. Copyright attorney Carolyn Wright has more on this.

More to come...
