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 wildlife contest finalists, professionally printed portfolios in the digital age, your ID info at the U.S. Copyright Office and a list of photography blogs to explore.

  • In Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2016, Alan Taylor presents images by 11 of the finalists from among the nearly 50,000 contest entries.
  • In Expert Advice: Print Portfolios, Stacy Swiderski suggests (strongly) that "it's important not to overlook the benefits of having a professionally printed portfolio and using it as part of a complete marketing agenda."
  • Do You Want to Remove Your ID Info from Copyright Office Records? "The U.S. Copyright Office today published a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, seeking public comment on proposed new rules related to personally identifiable information that may be found in the Office's registration records." If you've got an opinion, you can submit a comment.
  • Feedspot founder Anuj Agarwal lists his Top 100 Photography Blogs, which is heavily weighted on social media rankings (Facebook, Twitter) so a few significant sites (many of which we often cite here) are excluded. But a list is to be mined, so get out your picks and shovels, light your helmet lamp and get to work!

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