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 Max Siedentopf, Tom and Marj Green, the Newport Folk Festival, Jane Kim, printing in Lightroom and stopping copyright infringement.

  • Let's start with a laugh today with Passport Photos Widened to Reveal Unexpected Chaos Hiding Just Beyond of the Frame. Kate Sierzputowski presents Max Siedentopf's companion images of a passport-like photo and the wider scene. The idea came to him while sitting for his own passport photo.
  • In Seeing in Black & White, Tom and Marj Green show a compelling set of images proving their point. And then go on to discuss what they do in Lightroom and what they leave for Photoshop.
  • Jacob Blickenstaff is On the Road at the Newport Folk Festival where he's shooting behind the scenes to make some engaging portraits of the performers.
  • Jane Kim celebrated World Photography Day yesterday by Taking a Look Back through her archive. "It's become tremendously helpful to rediscover my work, not just to reminisce on the memories, but also to learn from the photos I may have initially rejected," she writes. And any day is a good day for that.
  • In Printing Single Images and Contact Sheets, Julieanne Kost tackles one of the toughest Lightroom Classic hurdles with two videos. It's complex, but she makes it look easy. Here's the first one:
  • In Who'll Stop the Rain of Infringement, Greenberg & Reznicki argue that the photographer whose image Elon Musk used without permission should simply have called a lawyer who would have reached an "under the radar settlement that sends money to a photographer." Otherswise, they add, "The result of not pursuing infringements, is more infringements."

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