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 big five wildlife, Narelle Autio, virtual galleries, reflecting and Huawei.

  • The New Big Five Wildlife Photography Project is an international initiative that would replace the old big five of wildlife (based on the toughest animals to shoot and kill) with a new selection based on photography, not hunting. Which new five? You get to vote.
  • The Leica Camera Blog is looking back at the 40-year history of the Oskar Barnack Award which has "offered not only great perspectives on socio-political and photographic issues, but, in their totality, have long become a vivid archive of the history of photojournalism." Today's feature is on 2002 winner Narelle Autio whose series The Coastal Dwellers was dedicated to beach life (life, you may have heard, is a beach).
  • In Photographic Art Brought to Your Home, SilvergrainClassics lists online galleries, videos and virtual tours that deliver the art of photography to your home.
  • In Reflect, Dave Williams praises the virtue of asking questions. "Reflecting on your own photographs is great for mental wellbeing and creative development," he writes. He offers a few notes to get you started.
  • Alex Wagner reports Huawei Caught Passing Off dSLR Photos as Being Taken With Smartphones. Again.

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