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 a last responder, James Hill, beets and radishes, a Bristlecone Pine, ISO and Portland.

  • Julie Dermansk's Portrait of a 'Last Responder' is a monochrome series taken in Courtney Baloney's funeral home sits in St. John the Baptist Parish, La., a coronavirus hot spot.
  • James Hill's images of the dancer David Hallberg capture the last days of his dancing career, cut short by performances canceled by the pandemic.
  • In The Beet Goes On, Harold Davis continues slicing things up with beets and radishes on his light box. He doesn't say but he must have a wicked mandolin.
  • Lloyd Chambers presents a color and monochrome version of a Huge Ancient Bristlecone Pine taken with the Nikkor Z 24mm.
  • Zach Sutton continues his series on photography fundamentals with How ISO Changes Your Photos. "With each new generation of cameras, the cleanliness of the files at higher ISOs has gotten better and what was once considered unusable, now is pretty clean images," he writes.
  • In Photographing Portland: The Photojournalist Who Was Shot in the Chest, the Phoblographer interviews photographer JD Barnes. Barnes observes, "Ultimately the job needed to be done and I think that from my perspective the rewards of being there and capturing history especially from a black person's perspective, outweighed the risk of being out there."

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