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 Mark Thiessen, Karl the Fog, the format rhetoric, Harold Davis, urban environments, frustration, Magnum Square Print Sale, NeoFinder, a Borrowlenses sale and a camera guide discount.

  • In I'm National Geographic Photographer Mark Thiessen, and This Is How I Work, Nick Douglas interviews the photographer about his first published news photo, his favorite photography gear, and his hack for sleeping on the road.
  • Karl the Fog has over 200,000 followers. And now there's a 112-pages book by the same name. After 91° heat yesterday, we're expecting a visit by the fog later today.
  • In Format Size and Image Quality, Jim Kasson tries to cool down "the format rhetoric" with a dispassionate look at the issue. "The people who say that format choices don't affect image quality are ignoring the limitations of equivalence. Those that say it's bunkum are ignoring how well it works if you use it within its limits," he writes.
  • Harold Davis shows off the variety of his Nautilus X-Ray Series made in collaboration with Dr. Julian Köpke in four variations.
  • Derrick Story has some fun Working With Color and Shape in Urban Environments. You'll see possibilities instead of urban decay, he writes.
  • In Frustration Versus Reality, Thom Hogan suggest things are better than ever and prices haven't changed that much either.
  • The Magnum Square Print Sale returns today through June 14, 11:59 p.m. EST. The sale offers signed or estate-stamped 6x6-inch museum quality prints by Magnum photographers for $100.
  • From iView to NeoFinder describes two ways to migrate from PhaseOne MediaPro to NeoFinder's DAM software.
  • Borrowlenses is having a Used Gear Sale with a 20 percent discount plus marked downs on select items up to 50 percent off. Use code SAVEONUSED19 at checkout through June 21.
  • Rocky Nook is offering 35 percent discounts on its Camera Guides when you use the code DAD2019 at checkout.
