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 interning at a newspaper, Paulette Tavormina, Jorg Siebler and Louise Dahl-Wolfe.

  • In Photographing for a Newspaper: The Best Class Money Can't Buy, Andrew Richardson insists "no amount of classes or YouTube videos will ever compare to the five months I spent interning at a large newspaper." Fortunately, he lived to tell the tale.
  • In Vivid Images That Aren't Old Masters -- but Look Just Like Them. Gay Gassmann presents 18 of Paulette Tavormina's images from Seizing Beauty. "I'm in love with the old masters, totally fascinated with them," Tavormina confided. "But I create my own personal story within each work."
  • Kate Wesson finds out How Jorg Siebler Captures Dramatic iPhone Photos. The Ann Arbor photographer uses Moment converter lenses and the Camera+ app to lower the ISO and shutter speed and recently started using the Slow Shutter app for long exposures. Post processing starts with Snapseed.
  • Aperture is publishing a new book on the work of pioneering fashion photographer Louise Dahl-Wolfe later this month but if you can't wait, Erica Schwiegershausen presents 15 of her images in A Legendary Fashion Photographer, Revisited. Among the 86 covers she shoot for Harper's Bazaar was 17-year-old Betty Bacall who became Lauren in To Have and Have Not with Humphrey Bogart.

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