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 Hong Kong protests, Iceland aerials, failure, wireless trigger options and a debate.

  • In Massive Protests in Hong Kong, Alan Taylor documents the protests against against a proposed law, supported by city leaders, that would allow extradition to China, compromising the city's independence.
  • Just when you think Iceland has been done, Julieanne Kost presents her gorgeous Aerials From Iceland. She hired "a small aircraft to fly over some truly unique and stunning landscapes" which she shot with her Canon EOS 5Ds and 24-105mm lens, keeping her camera out of the air stream. She doesn't go into it, but half the job was done in post, we're sure.
  • In Failure Is an Option, David Williams writes about a shot that continues to elude his best efforts. But he's not giving up.
  • Wireless Trigger Options Available for Strobe Photography covers brand vs. universal and optical vs. radio issues.
  • In the ironically titled Trust Me, Jim Kasson reviews a conversation with a rather uninformed and naive salesperson about camera features. "The engineers don't run the zoo," Kasson points out. Guess who does.

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