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 Alison Pollack, the Olympus TG-4, Retroactive, sunrise shoots, the ubertification of photography and a Feature Shoot contest.

  • Laura Staugaitis presents some colorful images of Spectacular Mushrooms and Fungi by Alison Pollack. "Pollack explains that focus stacking allows her to capture the depth and texture of her small subjects, sometimes incorporating upwards of one hundred photos to create a single image," she writes.
  • Derrick Story decided to take his Olympus TG-4 to Hawaii this week instead of buying the TG-6. "And so far, I have not regretted that move once. (Or should I say: non-move.)," he writes in Island Life With Minimal Gear.
  • In Technical Deep Dive: How Does Retroactive Work?, Tyshawn Cormier explains how the application can modify Aperture, iPhoto and iTunes to run on macOS Catalina.
  • Scott Kelby warns traveling photographers, Don't Make This 'Shooting at Sunrise' Mistake. "All the good stuff happens well before sunrise," he writes.
  • Paul Melcher sees the acquisition of Meero as The Ubertification of Photography. "The great unknown is if the great stock photo companies are going to react," he writes.
  • Feature Shoot is accepting entries for its Emerging Photography Awards, which include a $3,000 cash prize and exhibition at the Aperture Gallery in New York for 30 photographers. Deadline is Nov. 13 and there is a $35 entry fee for a series of up to five images.

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