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 Schnepp Renou, the Filter Photo Festival, digital baggage, how to break a lens, soft light, a better landscape camera and interpreting a photo.

  • Stephanie Wade explores the "adventure and intrigue" in the images of the Berlin-based photographic duo Schnepp Renou in The Beauty in Travel and Architecture. Concrete never looked so good.
  • Jonathan Blaustein has posted the second art of The Best Work I Saw at the Filter Photo Festival. This time he looks at work by Yvette Marie Dostatni, Thomas Brasch, Margaret LeJeune, Ruth Lauer Manenti, Sam Scoggins and Sara Pfohl.
  • Ming Thein wonders Where Will All the Photos Go? There are billions of them. He notes, "We are the first generation who will leave behind significant chunks of digital baggage; hard drives whose contents only we know; social media and cloud archives whose logins only we remember; file systems whose structures only we can navigate."
  • Roger Cicala, Aaron Closz and Joey Miller provide expert advice in How to Break a Lens. Repairs are also mentioned after the break (in the podcast).
  • In Big, Simple Light, Joe McNally shows how big, soft light can be stunning.
  • In Sony A7R IV vs. Fujifilm GFX 100 Landscape IQ, Jim Kasson finds the GFX 100 "distinctly better."
  • Andrew Molitor finds Something to Look At in the well-traveled photo of notes for a presidential press conference. We won't spoil the fun but mark your first impression, as he says. For extra credit, see Getty Images photographer Mark Wilson's story about capturing the image with a 400mm lens. That explains the problem with the shot. And if you read this far you deserve a clue. It's in the bottom right corner of the image.

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