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 a photo essay on the Bangladesh factory collapse, how to add textures to photos, Joe McNally's Vietnam project for Life magazine and photo contests.

  • Joe McNally is Still Shooting for Life. Bob Sullivan asked him to go on the road for a new Life book on Vietnam to "catch up with folks whose lives were powerfully intersected by that turbulent time." Along with write Daniel Levy, he visited Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. to find both vets and protestors.
  • Alain Briot has a few thoughts About Photographic Competitions. Two points we, as a judge, would underline are that "art is not a competitive endeavor" (despite some pretty amusing iron-chef like shootouts) and judges are overworked. It's a labor of love and the best judges encourage even better work out of anyone who submits an entry.

More to come...
