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 Gail Albert Halaban, Tara Todras-Whitehill, Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, the Learning Light, Sigma primes, Kodak Everyday and the Copyright Office's strategic plan.

  • For her new book Italian Views, photographer Gail Albert Halaban collaborated with her subjects who pose in their windows of her scenic shots. You can see more of the images on her Web site.
  • Photojournalist Tara Todras-Whitehill appeared on Your Call's Media Roundtable to discuss the impact of various recent anti-abortion initiatives. Her project I Had an Abortion is a series of portraits of women who have had an abortion. "I want people to see that this isn't a faceless issue and that there are women with incredible stories behind each of these photographs," she writes.
  • In Daguerreotypes by a French Traveler Who Was Among the First to Photograph the Eastern Mediterranean, Michael Press presents a selection of Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey’s daguerreotypes from the world's oldest photographic archive.
  • Scott Kelby has invented the $89.90 Learning Light, "a lighting tool for educators and students and its sole purpose is to teach people lighting before they go and buy lighting."
  • In Just MTF Charts: Sigma Prime Lenses, Roger Cicala continues his look at MTF results for lenses by various manufacturers.
  • Mastin Labs has released its $99 Kodak Everyday style packs Capture One and presets for Lightroom inspired by film emulsions.

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