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 Dennis Stock, Southern Namibia, Joe McNally, Jeff Bridges, Justin Dignwall, iPadOS, photo-editing apps and Chase Jarvis.

  • In California Trip: How Dennis Stock Caught the Darkness Beyond the Hippy Dream, Sean O'Hagan takes a peek at California Trip, the Magnun photographer's 1970 title being reissued in paperback tomorrow.
  • Morden O'Hare describes shooting Landscape Photography in Southern Namibia. The piece provides an overview of "where to go and how to shoot the highlights of southern Namibia with some ideas for how to get unique images of these well-photographed locations." But there's more. "A photographic tour of Namibia is not just about the photographs," he writes, "it is also about the lovely people, the cultural experiences, the elegant lodges, the traces of the country's colonial German architecture and the myriad outdoor activities that can be enjoyed like ballooning or quad biking or fishing."
  • Joe McNally's Glamour on Wheels! A Gitzo Shoot Part 1 -- Rigging! begins, "Sometimes, you just have to say, 'Why not?' and wing it and see what happens. Wait a minute. Sometimes?"
  • In Actor Jeff Bridges' New Photo Book Shows Hollywood In-Between Takes, Nick Chen interviews the actor about Pictures Volume Two,. Bridges says his favorite camera, a Widelux, is "a bridge from still photography to motion picture photography. It's a combination of those two things and capturing time in one instant, on one negative."
  • In 5 & 3/4 Questions, Adobe Create interviews South African photographer Justin Dignwall. Which includes three "quarter" questions that have nothing to do with his photography.
  • Derrick Story provides a First Look at Editing Photos in iPadOS. He upgraded to a 2019 iPad so he could run the redesigned Photos app on iPadOS and writes, "I can tell you that I'm not disappointed."
  • Hillary Grigonis lists eight of The Best Photo-Editing Apps for Android and iOS and quite a few of them are free. We highly recommend keeping a darkroom in your pocket. We haven't see the image yet which can't be significantly enhanced with a little editing.
  • Chase Jarvis will be available for an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit at 1 p.m. ET on Friday. His book Creative Calling is being released this month.

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