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 Jim Cole, Mark Kauzlarich, an old school flash rig and the death of public relations.

  • In Capturing Campaign History In The Granite State, Brady Carlson profiles Associate Press photographer Jim Cole, who has shot every New Hampshire primary since 1980. "Cole has a rule he follows when out on assignment: No matter how crowded the press gaggle gets, he never takes a picture while he's touching another photographer," Carlson writes. "The point is to force himself to think of a different approach to each shot."
  • Elijah Walker interviews New York Times photography intern Mark Kauzlarich about the photo from a series about a small commercial fishing boat he chose as his turning point. Why it the turning point? "I convinced Jeff and his family that they could trust me to tell their story," he explains.
  • Derrick Story describes his Old School Flash Rig for Mirrorless Weddings, which uses a bracket to get the flash off the camera. We'd just add a bounce card and leave the flash power at 100 percent. Set it and forget it.
  • Kirk Tuck muses on the changing nature of what we all do for a living as photographers after listening to a public relations pro discuss the changes in the business. The talk was titled "The Death of Public Relations." Tuck recommends we "make sure we maintain relationships with the agencies but to redouble our efforts to make more clients into direct clients."
