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 Robert Frank online at the National Gallery of Art, Mircea Albutiu, Gary Arndt's advice and Alan Briot's encouragement.

  • The National Gallery of Art has posted The Robert Frank Collection, which includes "vintage and later prints, contact sheets, work prints, negatives, three bound books of original photographs, technical material, and various papers, books and recordings." Maurice Berger describes the collection, the largest repository of Frank materials, in Finding Robert Frank, Online.
  • The Leica Camera Blog interviews Mircea Albutiu. The Romanian dance photographer shoots in available light with a Leica Monochrom. One series was shot at ISO 5000, f1.7 and 1/350 second. "Getting into the feeling is not enough from my point of view," he says. "You have to use the creativity and your knowledge, use all the opportunities for catching the pictures you believe are worthy."
  • Gary Arndt wrote today's Photoshop Insider Guest Blog, confessing he bought a dSLR in 2007 and "set out to travel around the world." But "after only a few weeks on the road, I quickly realized that my camera wasn’t going to take good photos on its own." He details five lessons he learned in becoming a travel photographer.
  • How are those New Year's Resolutions going? Fine art photographer Alan Briot has some advice in Reaching Your Goals in 2015. Lots of advice, in fact.

More to come...
