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 Paxson Woelber, Vitor Andrade, World Press Photo Contests nominees, Steve Peixotto, Fujifilm X100V focal lengths, Nikon's WPPI live stream and Harold Davis.

  • Grace Ebert showcases the Massive Ice Formations that Paxson Woelber finds in the caves of the Castner Glacier in the Eastern Alaska Range in temperatures below -30°F.
  • Devid Gualandris presents Vitor Andrade's photographs of Lonely Figures in Wide Spaces. "His photographs have an air of longing to them; they project solitude and cultivate an immediate sense of intimacy within the viewer, enabling pause and reflection," Gualandris writes.
  • World Press Photo Foundation has announced the 2020 World Press Photo Contests Nominees with galleries for each contest. From entries by 4,282 photographers in 125 countries submitting 73,996 images, 44 professional photographers in 24 countries have been nominated.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Steve Peixotto about his The Twilight Twirlers, a shot of two traveling bowlers and a classic Cadillac.
  • Derrick Story demonstrates Changing From 35mm to 50mm and 70mm on a Fujifilm X100V but a word to the wise is called for. The 26.1-megapixel sensor itself delivers 6240 x 4160-pixel images so it's no wonder shooting at narrower focal lengths than the 35mm optical focal length of the lens only works with JPEGs. It's digital zoom, in short, which you can emulate with Raw files by cropping. You just won't get the experience of composing in the wild at 50mm or 70mm.
  • Nikon is live streaming its Wedding & Portrait Photography International presentations through Feb. 27.
  • Harold Davis has announced an Upcoming Free 'Photography as Poetry' Presentation at the Alamo Danville Artists' Society on Tuesday, Mar. 10 at 7:30 p.m.

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