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 Vogue Italia, Michael Mack, National Geographic cameras, Elias Chasiotis, Maine and HDMI cables.

  • Ellie Violet Bramley reports Vogue Italia Drops Photoshoots From January Issue in Green Statement. She quotes Emanuele Farneti on just what wasn't green about the magazine's September shoots: "One hundred and fifty people involved. About 20 flights and a dozen or so train journeys. Forty cars on standby. Sixty international deliveries. Lights switched on for at least 10 hours nonstop, partly powered by gasoline-fuelled generators. Food waste from the catering services. Plastic to wrap the garments. Electricity to recharge phones, cameras..."
  • The British Journal of Photography continues its Best of 2019 with five picks by Michael Mack.
  • National Geographic's slide show of Our Photographers' Favorite Cameras presents 11 choices that range from the antique to the exotic.
  • This Sinister Sunrise by Elias Chasiotis is actually a shot of the eclipse of the sun during "an inversion layer of unusually warm air which acted like a gigantic lens and created a second image," according to a NASA astronomer.
  • Rod Clark was Photographing Maine in October so he could catch fall colors and the rocky coastline.
  • Simon Cohen evaluates The Best HDMI Cables for 2020. The devil is in the details when it comes to cables.

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