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 women's suffrage, Brian Griffin, Nirvana's Nevermind swimming baby, simulating an etching, the Fujifilm GRX 100, dynamic range explained, the Nikon v1 and a Sigma Father's Day deal.

  • Alan Taylor marks the 100th anniversary of passage of the 19th Amendment with 24 photos of The Battle for Women's Suffrage in the U.S.
  • The Guardian goes Inside the Surreal Mind of Brian Griffin, examining some early black-and-white shots from the photographer famous for his shots of pop stars from Kate Bush and Elvis Costello to Iggy Pop.
  • Kirk Weddle's best photograph was Nirvana's Nevermind Swimming Baby. He tells the story to Tim Jonze.
  • Derrick Story shows How to Convert a Photo to an Etching in 3 Steps using Photoshop.
  • Jim Kasson considers Bill Claff's GFX 100 Analyses, comparing noise and the dynamic range of the Fujifilm GFX 50S, GFX 100 and Phase One IQ4 150 sensors.
  • And Jasenka Grujin explains What Is Dynamic Range and how to use it. The histogram display is your friend here, she points out.
  • Kirk Tuck remembers his Nikon v1 fondly, wondering "how successful it would be if it was re-imagined today with a selection of smaller, faster prime lenses and one of the marvelous Sony 20-megapixel sensors." Good question. The failing of the V1 (which we reviewed at the time it was released) was its resolution. Just 10-Mp. But we too loved shooting with the system.
  • Sigma's Father's Day promotion offers savings on 11 select Global Vision Art and Contemporary lenses as well as its Mount Converter MC-11 through June 17.

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