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 Poulomi Basu, a $58,000 bid, Ted Chin, Timothy O'Sullivan, Margaret Wright, editing infrared, Dutch angle photographs, the best digicams and a National Parks ruling.

  • Justin Herfst reviews Centralia, a photo book created over 10 years by Poulomi Basu that tells the story of an under-reported conflict between indigenous landowners and the state in central India.
  • Craig Oppenheimer negotiates a Pharmaceutical Product Shoot for $58,000. "The numbers were well received, however we were informed that they wanted to add a video component to the project," he writes. That was another $15,000.
  • Aileen Kwun lets you Peer Into Ted Chin's Exquisite, Surreal Dreamscapes. Chin created this years Photoshop splash page of two flamingos.
  • In Reflections: Kelly Davis on Timothy O'Sullivan, Getty metadata specialist Kelly Davis longs for a hike in the Sierras as she views an 1871 photograph by Timothy O‚ÄôSullivan.
  • Interior photographer Margaret Wright explains The Secret Strength of Imposter Syndrome. "Once I had the content to show what I could do, the design jobs started to come in and I could start dropping the gigs that didn't interest me or pay enough to be worth my while, until the day I was shooting interiors exclusively," she writes. "I still feel like an imposter sometimes. What I've learned is that everyone does. The trick is to remember you're not alone and to channel it into productive energy."
  • In How to Use Photos for macOS for Infrared Photography, Derrick Story continues his exploration of infrared photography.
  • Jason Row shows How to Shoot Dutch Angle Photographs, those shots taken at "a canted angle where the camera has been rotated relative to the horizon." There, now you know how.
  • Louis Cheslaw lists The Best Point-And-Shoot Cameras after talking to five photographers who love theirs. The smart recommendations are accompanied by an appreciation for what the digicam can do that a smartphone or dSLR can't.
  • In Commercial Filmmakers Don't Need Permits in National Parks, Kurt Repanshek reports, "A federal judge has struck down as unconstitutional the National Park Service's practice of charging commercial filmmakers who want to shoot in the National Park System, ruling it is a protected activity under the First Amendment."

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