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 beauty, surfing Teahupo'o, the Pacific Coast, mistakes, billing a shoot, Prizmo 5 and the International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest.

  • What Is Beauty? Benjamin Pineros tracks down Romanian photographer Mihaela Norok to find out. Norok has traveled the globe "to create The Atlas of Beauty, an ambitious project that seeks out to prove that beauty is everywhere around us and comes in all shapes, colors and sizes."
  • Alan Taylor presents 21 photos of Surfing Teahupo'o, as Seen From Above and Below by Brian Bielmann, a photographer with Agence France-Presse. Unusually stunning compositions (in three words).
  • In My 2019 Roadtrip Along the Pacific Coast, Jason Kottke shows off a few of his gorgeous vacation images and links to more. "Sometimes the problem with going on vacation is that you have to take yourself along with you," he points out, meaning your baggage.
  • In What Makes a Good Photograph?, Hannah Abel-Hirsch interviews SFMOMA photography curator Clément Chéroux about the exhibition Don't! Photography and the Art of Mistakes. "The exhibition is organized around the idea that a mistake is a point of entrance to something new," he says. "The mistake reveals something that you may not have thought about before: a new way of making photographs."
  • In What Does a Food Shoot Cost? Kyle Dreier answers in detail. It's really about any professional shoot, not just food photography. His creative approach to itemizing that invoice is a case in point.
  • John Voorhees reviews Prizmo 5, a scanning and OCR solution for iOS that now comes in a free version with a paid premium pack for more features like text-to-speech.
  • The International Landscape Photographer of the Year contest is now open. Deadline is Oct. 15 and the rules require an image taken in 2018 or later.

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