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. This time we look at the 2018 Dakar Rally, A.B. Watson, Cheney Orr, Photo NOLA, a photoessay, group copyright registration and TTL flash metering.

  • Alan Taylor presents 33 Photos From the 2018 Dakar Rally through Peru, Bolivia and Argentina but the first one says it all. Someone is expected at the finish line tomorrow.
  • A.B. Watson is The Zen Photographer of Auckland, New Zealand. He got valuable advice in a scholarship program at Kingsize Studios, which was "to stop thinking, just take photos of whatever, almost like a kid with a disposable camera, don't think, just capture."
  • In A Father, a Son, a Disease, and a Camera, John Leland interviews Cheney Orr about his series on his father David's last days with Alzheimer's disease. "'Thank you' and 'I love you' were things he could say," the son remembers.
  • Jonathan Blaustein presents part one of The Best Work I Saw at Photo NOLA. What struck us (once again) is the empty walls inside the homes of so many people. Sure, we know why. But it seems like a project dying for a philanthropist. Or a company that makes printers.
  • Watercourse is Ming Thein's photoessay "of a work in progress that will only get more spectacular with time, assuming a) we as the human race are still around to see it and b) we haven't somehow messed it up ourselves."
  • Carolyn Wright reports the Copyright Office Introduces Online Group Registration of Photographs. Up to 750 photos per claim with "other changes to streamline the practices relating to group registration of photographs."
  • Scott Kelby thinks he knows why You Hate Your Flash. It's because it's on automatic with TTL enabled. You're better off firing it manually and making an adjustment until you're happy with the amount of light it fires.

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