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 free images, finding images, Dawn Huemann, a twilight tip and three answers.

  • Paris Musées, a collection of 14 museums in Paris, has put 100,000 images online. The unrestricted use images include these photographs by Eugène Atget.
  • In Great Migration: Finding Pictures, the Library of Congress provides some pointers for searching the collection for images of the migration of millions of African Americans from the south to the north between 1915 and 1970.
  • In Modern Huntsman IV: Dawn Huemann, Heidi Volpe interviews Huemann about her shoot with the Salmon Sisters of Alaska. "I was there for four days, but we only got to shoot for one and a half due to weather," she says.
  • Dave Williams has a Quick Twilight Tip that involves multiple exposures. Some cameras can do this with the same frame, others require compositing layers.
  • In More Ask Thom Questions Answered, Hogan covers maximum shutter speeds, XQD cards and CFexpress card firmware.

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