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 Berenice Abbott, UV filters, Reznicki on the Stepables judgement and flower photography.

  • In Berenice Abbott: 'Paris Portraits 1925-1930', Miss Rosen presents a few of the photographer's portraits from the book while telling her story. "I treated every session as though I had never taken a photograph before in my life, relying on the moment, on my reaction to the sitters, working together with them and thinking what to do with them and how to see them," Abbott once said.
  • In Yet Another Post About My Issues With UV Filters, Roger Cicala shows you the effect of an inexpensive but brand name filter on a perfectly sharp lens. It isn't pretty.
  • The Copyright Zone's Jack Reznicki posted a Comment on Large Judgement~, which would be the recent $900,000 infringement award won by Stepables. Reznicki points out that suing for infringement is not the impossible dream because, he writes, "Most infringers who have no valid defense, when properly pursued, settle rather than be subjected to a jury award, legal fees and bad publicity." Except in this case. And they lost.
  • Harold Davis observes Home Is Best ... With Flower Photography and proves it with some gladiolas from Trader Joe's and bellflowers from his garden shot on a lightbox with a Nikon D810 and Zeiss Otus 55mm.

More to come (you can probably guess what)! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
