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 Autophoto, Dronestagram photo contest winners, a stock photo copyright shell game, Chris Killip and lenses for ultra hi-res sensors.

  • In Start Your Engines: Photography's Romance With the Car, Eric Nagourney shows 15 images from Autophoto, the Cartier Foundation's exhibit that "traces cars' impact on the world through hundreds of photographs dating to the early 20th century."
  • Dronestagram has published the winners of its Fourth Annual International Drone Photography Contest. More than one gag shot, lots of abstract compositions, all of them fun.
  • In But I Own the Copyright!, Greenberg and Reznicki take on a familiar stock agency "shell game." Which, they explain, goes like this, "You own your copyright, but you've signed away all rights that mean anything that go with copyright. Like resale rights, alteration rights and the right to go after and sue infringements. Basically, you own the copyright in name only." Applies to a lot of photo contests, too.
  • In Caught in the Act: A Conversation With Photographer Chris Killip, Laura Hubber talks to the Isle of Man photographer about his book In Flagrante Two, a reissue of the classic shot in Northern England with a 4x5 view camera during the 1970s and 1980s. The Getty is exhibiting Killip's maquettes, contact sheets and work prints for the project through Aug. 13.
  • Roger Cicala has been conducting Experiments for Ultra High Resolution Camera Sensors. And he's found a few lenses that can resolves 200 line pairs/mm, and more when stopped down. Only one zoom came close.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
