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 Getty Inclusion Scholarships, Rachael Talibart, Enda Burke, the new Nikkor Z 28mm, Sekonic, LaserSoft discounts, a Lensbaby deal and David Hobby.

  • The Guardian features winners of The Getty Inclusion Scholarships "which promote greater diversity and inclusion within the photographic and media industries by supporting emerging talented photographers and photojournalists within minority groups to enable careers within the industry."
  • Dahlia Ambrose sees the Ghostly Echo of Shells in the images shot by Rachael Talibart. "Using slow shutter speeds, Rachael contrasts the stillness of the objects with the movement of seawater as a ghostly echo of the life these objects once had," she writes.
  • In Homebound With My Parents, Enda Burke explores "how small details of color and play can become marvels in monotonous settings." Her captive parents were her models in these shots that "utilize nostalgia as a form of escapism."
  • Mike Johnston muses on the Nikkor Z 28mm f2.8 Special Edition. "Verdict: A Good Thing. Mike seal of provisional approval bestowed. Pending IQ of course."
  • Sekonic is celebrating its 70th Anniversary with the L-398A Studio Deluxe III meter based on the original 1956 version of the Studio Deluxe.
  • LaserSoft is offer a 20 percent discount on SilverFast, its scanning software, and IT8 calibration targets through July 5 when you use the code JULY4th at checkout.
  • Lensbaby is offering a 15 percent discount on the Spark 2.0 through July 5, which we reviewed earlier this year.
  • So Long (For Now!) and Thank You, writes Strobist David Hobby, who has been working on a photography-based project even more important than his 15-year Strobist effort.

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