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 Photo Oxford Festival, Jeff Schewe, Julieanne Kost, Munem Wasif, the Canon R5, CUPS, photos, a cash grant and a legal chat.

  • The third Photo Oxford Festival, running until Nov. 16, "celebrates the feminine, with the theme Women and Photography -- Ways of Seeing and Being Seen. Exhibits and events across the city will explore the achievements of and challenges for women, both behind and in front of the lens, including problems of representation, women as photographers, collectors and curators and photographic techniques."
  • Kevin Raber has posted the second session of Lightroom Edits With Jeff Schewe in which reader images are edited.
  • Julieanne Kost will present two free sessions on Photoshop Compositing and Personal Projects That Boost Your Creativity at Adobe MAX, which is online only this year.
  • In Of Poetry and Magic, Amy Parrish interviews Munem Wasif, who is another one of the jurors for this year's LensCulture Black and White Awards. "Photography gives me the time to pause and think about the world we are living in," he says. "Everything is running too fast."
  • Iain Stanley is upset about his July order for a Canon R5 because it still hasn't shipped. And he's not alone, he discovered. "A bunch of new RF lenses are in the pipeline, which promise even more features and benefits than ever," he writes. "However, no EOS R5s in the hands of many after three months of waiting is an issue that needs immediate redress."
  • Tim Anderson wonders, Has Apple Abandoned CUPS?. The lead developer left Apple at the end of last year and there's only been one commit in the public repository for the project since then.
  • In I Like Photos, Andrew Molitor confesses an abiding affection for images that is not as widely shared as one might assume. "Quite a lot of people visualize themselves as photographers," he writes. "But most of them don't really like pictures."
  • In Getty Images and iStock Launch Cash Grant Programs Worth $20,000, Kehl Bayern reports "first prize nets the winner $10,000, second place gets $7,000 and third place receives $3,000."
  • Greenberg & Reznicki invite you to View Our Latest Zoom of their recent legal discussion at B&H. They're thinking of doing it monthly.

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