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 Jovana Rikalo, the total lunar eclipse, blogging, the Seagate Mach2 and PhotoPXLcom 2.0.

  • Sarah Cornwell interviews Jovana Rikalo about her photos of a Fairy-Tale World. She spends two or three days thinking about the concept before hunting down models, locations and props. It's a week before she's ready to shoot for a few hours. Editing takes anywhere from 20 minutes to four hours, she adds.
  • Antoni Cladera explains How to Photograph the May 26 Total Lunar Eclipse. He also wrote Lunar Eclipses 2021: The Definitive Photography Guide if you want to dig deeper. There's time.
  • Kirk Tuck muses on Things I've Learned While Blogging About Photography, including "the Internet has succeeded in becoming one continuous advertisement disguised as 'knowledge.'" Then there's this: "If you start making money with your blog then consider moving everything to a Vlog. People are absolute suckers for video. Even really bad video." Had to laugh.
  • Jim Salter reports Seagate's New Mach2 Is the World's Fastest Conventional Hard Drive. It uses a second set of actuator arms, which can be positioned independently from the first set, as you had two drives in one chassis.
  • In Welcome to PhotoPXLcom Version 2.0, Kevin Raber points out the higher-resolution images and a light/dark mode option that will be available with the new membership program of $9/month (although access to the site will remain free). "As we come out of the pandemic I'd like to offer more content, videos and tutorials, as well as workshops," he writes. "We can only do this like any business if we are funded."

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