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 Stanley Kubrick, the NYT Portfolio Review, photography for yourself, Salton Sea and the 500px/Fotolia connection.

  • "The best filmmakers are often photographers," Rian Dundon introduces a set of black-and-white by The Young Stanley Kubrick. Kubrick's father gave him a Graflex when he was 13 and he became his school's official class photographer. He sold his first photo to Look when he was 17 and did over 300 shoots for them as a staffer.
  • In The Best Work I Saw at the NYT Portfolio Review, Jonathan Blaustein considers the difference between artists and journalists before presenting the best work of the photojournalists he reviewed.
  • Kirk Tuck is Re-Connecting With Photography. "Lately I've come to think of my process of photography as having the same function as dreaming," he writes.
  • In Salton Sea -- Unifying Photographs in Lightroom CC, Julieanne Kost takes a 45mm tilt-shift lens on her afternoon adventure. "While using the tilt-shift lens, limiting the depth of field, and photographing similar subject matter, were three great techniques for creating a cohesive body of work," she adds, "there were a number of refinements that I could make in post to further unify the images."
  • In Beware: 500px Now Sells Your Photos on Fotolia Without Credit, Alex Random tracks down a February sale of his photo by Adobe's Fotolia in partnership with 500px that still has not been paid. And Fotolia credits the author of the photo as 500px. Random doesn't investigate the Exif header of the Fotolia image for copyright information and 500px insists he'll eventually be paid. But it's no way to run a railroad.

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