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 MaryAnne Golon, family portraits, the Sony 400mm f2.8 G and Motif Photos.

  • In The State of Photojournalism Today, Cat Lachowskyj interviews the Washington Post's Assistant Managing Editor and Director of Photography MaryAnne Golon. "I love to be surprised by photography, but in visual narrative storytelling, especially from a journalistic perspective, the most important thing is that each individual image can stand alone, but in their combination, they tell a story," she says.
  • In Individual Family Portraits for the New Year, Derrick Story has another timely idea. Your subjects "can use the images for social, resumes, etc. while you build the family archive," he writes.
  • Roger Cicala and team tear down the Sony 400mm f2.8 G after doing the same last week to the Canon 400mm f2.8L IS III. The $12,000 lens "has excellent weather sealing, heavy-duty engineering between the barrel segments, a very solid chassis and components that all appear up to the task." And gets Cicala's "seal of engineering approval."
  • Ellyn Kail builds a photo book with Motif Photos, an extension for Photos on macOS that marks which photos won't print well. The app is free and the service provides cards at 99 cents, books starting at $9.99 and calendars for $19.99.

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