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 the Leica M, Robbie Lawrence, David Carson, Scott Rinckenberger, the Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art lens and infrared photography.

  • Steve Huff sings Praise to the Leica M with a series of images he's shot over the years. He doesn't own one now but adds, "The experience of using a rangefinder is still today like no other and always will be."
  • In Robbie Lawrence Travels the Dark Backwaters of the Deep South, Hannah Abel-Hirsch reviews the photographer's most recent photobook, Blackwater River. "The idea for the project developed in reaction to inflammatory media -- the very black-and- white notion of what was going on in the U.S.," Lawrence says.
  • In How David Carson Won a Pulitzer Covering Ferguson, Roger Cicala interviews the Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch about his career, photojournalism and the protests in Ferguson.
  • Adventure photographer Scott Rinckenberger suggest you Follow Your Passion Way Off the Beaten Track on skis. "I started feeling like I at least needed to bring a camera along to record these adventures," he says. "From there, I began developing an eye for wilderness winter landscapes and creating imagery that I wasn't really seeing anywhere else." And, well, things snowballed.
  • Kirk Tuck takes his Sigma 35mm f1.4 Art Lens for a walk. The lens is currently being discounted to about $650. "My conclusion?" he writes. "You could do a hell of a lot worse in a fast 35mm lens; especially for the current price."
  • Jasenka Grujin covers How to Shoot Infrared Photography with a little history, a discussion of camera conversions and filters plus a look at editing infrared images.

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