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 misinformation, landscape kit, photo and video apps, a judgment against a wedding photographer and asking permission.

  • Kirk Tuck has a list of Things People Say About Cameras That Aren't Really Correct. "I guess at the heart of all this is that people say stuff that's either a result of groupspeak, inexperience or ignorance of the past, present and future," he writes. "It pays to try stuff for yourself." Eventually, you do anyway, after all.
  • Landscape (and former sports) photographer Don Smith shows What's in My Bag. There's a nice selection of his images accompanying the article as well.
  • Hans Hartman lists Eight Trends Among the Top-Ranking Photo & Video Apps. The data showing "continued growth" in the sector is from a report by SensorTower.
  • In Judge Calls Out Wedding Photographer's 'Deceitful Behaviour', Kehl Bayern reports on a recent Canadian judgment of $22,00 for the plaintiff. "The judge noted that the photographer, who has a career of some 20 years, was sued no less than five times from 2011 until 2019," he writes. "For his part, the photographer, Aman Bal, claims he withheld the photos because the couple owed him a final payment of $CAD 3,500 but was unable to provide proof of this."
  • Sometimes the trick is To Ask, Kenneth Wajda writes. In his case, he asked a family playing catch if he could take a picture of them.

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