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 Glorious, Jamel Shabazz, the Yosemite Firefall, cropping, ambiguity, male poses and weather photography.

  • The Guardian highlights images from a new membership platform called Glorious that brings together writers, photographers, illustrators and filmmakers to focus on women's sport.
  • In Photographers in Awe as Rare Yosemite Firefall Illuminates El Capitan, Brian Lada and Emmy Victor report on "one of the most spectacular sights in California."
  • Chris Gampat interviews Jamel Shabazz about his 45 year career in photography. He puts on some old school jazz and goes through his archive. "This experience has allowed me to revisit so many fond memories and places close to my heart," he says.
  • Thom Hogan shares some thoughts on Cropping as one of his many Teaching Points.
  • In A Photographic Series About Ambiguity, Grace Ebert presents a two-photograph series by Sander Plug and Lernert Engelberts that centers on "our collective outlook for the future through a blur of frosted glass."
  • Jasenka Grujin suggests a few Male Poses for Portraits. "Poses for men are just a little bit different from female poses because you need to emphasize different physical and personality traits," she writes.
  • The Royal Meteorological Society in association with AccuWeather is hosting Weather Photographer of the Year: Meet the Experts, a free online event on Thursday, Mar. 25 at 6 p.m. GMT. A panel of professional photographers, previous weather photographer of the year winners, meteorologists and competition judges will discuss what makes a great weather photo, knowing the weather and getting the best out of your camera equipment.

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