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 the Sony World Photography Awards, Ivor Prickett, Richard Radstone, beam angle and the industry's quiet start.

  • In End of the Caliphate, Eefje Ludwig interviews Irish photographer Ivor Prickett about his book of the same name covering his time embedded with Iraqi and Syrian Kurdish forces.
  • Suzanne Sease presents Sidewalk Ghosts, the personal project of Richard Radstone. It all started when "I began blogging a series of daily essays, portraits and videos based on my street interviews of absolute strangers."
  • Zach Sutton explains How Your Flashtube Position and Shape Changes Your Light Quality. "The biggest factor affected by where the flash tube sits on the head is what is known as beam angle or light spread," he writes.
  • In The Natives Are Restless, Thom Hogan reflects on the industry's quiet start this year. "Overall, we're probably at a quarter of the expected cameras, a third of the expected lenses for this time period," he writes. Which is making photographers restless.

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