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 rust, funny wildlife, Tim Walker, bi-directional printing, panning and Robert Frank tributes.

  • Kevin Rabor falls in love with Antarctica Rust, which has "a unique orange color that catches light in a certain way to accent the texture and shape of the objects it covers," he writes.
  • The finalists for the Comedy Wildlife Photography Awards 2019 have been selected. The winners will be announced on Nov. 13.
  • In Tim Walker: Shoot for the Moon, Diane Smyth talks to the photographer about his new book Shoot for the Moon and exhibition at the V&A. He has a little advice, too. "If you're kind and responsible and love humankind generally, the world is your oyster," he says.
  • Jim Kasson isn't done testing his Epson P800. Now he wonders if precision deteriorates when using the High Speed bi-directional printing option. "If anything, the bidirectional printing looks better, not worse," he writes.
  • Techniques for Panning includes a nice video tutorial by Natalie Fobes.
  • Tributes to Robert Frank from his colleagues continue to roll in. BJP has published Remembering Robert Frank, 1924-2019 and the New York Times has added Robert Frank's Legacy: Nine Photographers Reflect. And in Robert Frank, RIP, and So On, Andrew Molitor compares him to Harper Lee.

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