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 Kate Wagget, Aldo Chacon, Konsta PUnkka, funeral photographers, the Olympus E-P1, lockdown portrait lessons, TinEye, Toon Artist and vagabond photography.

  • Sunday Worship With Joy is Kate Wagget's best photo. "I photographed Joy in August 2019, toward the end of a three-year project I called Sunday Best, which celebrates London's religious diversity through portraits and stories of Londoners dressed for worship," she says.
  • Suzanne Sease features Aldo Chacon's personal project Correfocs. "In the correfoc, a group of individuals will dress as devils and light up fireworks that are fixed on their devil's pitchforks," he says. He captures the drama in black and white.
  • Grace Ebert showcases Foxes Caught in Dramatic Squabbles and Sleepy by Helsinki-born photographer Konsta PUnkka. The trick to his intimate images of the wild animals is to just lay on the ground and wait. "Most of the time, the fox cubs come to check you out closer," he says.
  • Ellyn Kail continues her series on unusual photography jobs with Funeral Photographer. There is, apparently, a "growing demand" for funeral photography.
  • Speaking of the old toolbox, Derrick Story fondly describes his 10-year-old Olympus E-P1.
  • Kirk Tuck passes along the 12 lessons he learned after his First Portrait Session since the lockdown.
  • TinEye is a free reverse image search tool, showing you where an image can be found online.
  • Nuwan Panditha has contributed Toon Artist, a free Photoshop action that requires the Oil Paint filter (which is not active on older systems). It takes three to four minutes to render the image.
  • In Today's Vagabond Photographers and Artists, Greenberg & Reznicki observe, "Many creatives work regularly in major cities in which they neither live or have a studio. Still others reside outside of urban America." But that doesn't mean they should obscure their business address, they argue.

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