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 Donato Di Camillo, Anne Noggle, Silvia Becker, Texas wineries, photo forensics and Andrew Molitor.

  • In Beach Body Bingo, Donato Di Camillo loves the beach because there "most people are relaxed and uninhibited." Yeah, but what about bingo? "The idea came from a disciplinary exercise I instilled on my photography. I only allow myself 10 photos per day in an attempt to focus more on the subjects."
  • Kevin Ames celebrates the photography of Anne Noggle (1922–2005), who referred to her self portraits as "the saga of fallen flesh."
  • In How Silvia Becker Photographs Curious, Microscopic Shells on the Beach, Becker reveals she uses a Leica S APO stereo microscope and a Sony a6300. She uses "the bottom part of an old microscope to make a stage with a fine drive" because stereo microscopes generally do not have a fine drive for stacking shots.
  • Kirk Tuck photographed Wineries in the Texas Hill Country with the Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 DN DG zoom. "One thing I found that was refreshing, from a work point of view, is that people drinking wine at beautiful wineries are more than happy to sign model releases and will always accept a glass of wine as payment," he notes. Good to know.
  • In The Hidden Fingerprint Inside Your Photos, Jerone Andrews covers everything from Exif metadata to sensor characteristics.
  • Andrew Molitor reflects on Magic and Time and Photographs. "Photographs are both a kind of a magic trick and a kind of a document," he writes.

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