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 Roland Schmid, Ming Thein, Arthur Cauty, womxn coping, Christian Werner, LED lighting, Sharon Tenenbaum and the Panasonic FZ1000M2.

  • Cross-Border Love is a photo essay by Roland Schmid focused on couples separated by the Swiss-German border during the quarantine. "If a couple gets too close to each other on the border, the guards usually turn a blind eye," he writes. But not everywhere.
  • Ming Thein encourages you to Use the Night. "Beyond the subject matter itself, there's the opportunity to present the same subject very differently: be it due to the change in ambient illumination color and direction or integration long exposure and motion or at a deeper level, reflecting the changes in ourselves and the way we observe and behave once the sun goes down," he writes.
  • Scott Kelby found Something Really Beautiful This Morning created by Arthur Cauty from astrophotography stills:
  • Kirk Tuck shows how sharp the zoom on the $800 Panasonic FZ1000M2 actually is. "I found that at every focal length the lens, the camera and the camera's processing did a great job making files that were nicely sharp but without apparent sharpening artifacts," he writes.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
