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 the portrait shooting process, a Sony A7R II focusing bug, McNair Evans and 30 years ago in news photos.

  • Kirk Tuck describes his portrait shooting process from getting "invited to the party" to sending the invoice. And he's just as detailed about how he uses Lightroom and he is about putting his subject at ease.
  • Lloyd Chambers discusses a Major Focusing Bug? with the Sony A7R II and Sony G Master lenses. The camera "does not open the lens diaphragm to focus," although it does with the Zeiss Batis 85mm.
  • In The Secret Lives of Amtrak Passengers, Andrea Denhoed presents 14 images by photographer and 2016 Guggenheim fellow McNair Evans of "the peculiar state of enforced relaxation that long-distance travel imposes." The series is on display at San Francisco City Hall through Nov. 18.
  • Alan Taylor invites you to "take a step into a visual time capsule now" in 30 Years Ago: A Look Back at 1986.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
