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 Portugal, new UNESCO World Heritage sites, Terence Donovan, shooting outside your comfort zone, a robot photographer, finding focus and shoes.

  • In Wildfires Rage in Central Portugal, Alan Taylor presents 21 photos from the Castelo Branco region where three wildfires have burned through several villages, injury 39 people.
  • Meghan Miner Murray showcases The Newest UNESCO World Heritage Sites in an 30 photo slide show.
  • Miss Rosen presents a few Memories of Terence Donovan's Swinging Sixties
  • Terry White advised you to Shoot Outside of Your Comfort Zone. He has for 10 years and the experience has provided "many photos and experiences that I cherish to this day."
  • Julie Verhage reports Now You Can Hire a Robot Photographer for product photos from Square, Inc. The charge is $10 plus shipping for three digital photos from different angles or $30 for a 360-degree view.
  • In What Is Tack Sharp?, Thom Hogan ranks current cameras on their ability to find focus. After listing Nikon and Canon dSLRs, he adds, "for static subjects, pretty much all the mirrorless cameras are more precise and consistent in setting their focus plane than the DSLRs."
  • Kirk Tuck considers the importance of Shoes for photographers who shoot executive portraits.

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