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 Emerging Photography Awards, the Seoul Metro, Rachel Wisniewski, Brad Wilson, lens adapters, the TTArtisan 35mm f1.4 and M1 core management.

  • Sarah Gilbert presents the winners of the Emerging Photography Awards who will have their work exhibited at BBA Gallery in Berlin and Studio Galerie B&B in Paris.
  • Reflections Inside the Seoul Metro by Argus Paul Estabrook capture "a world of black-and-white abstractions and kaleidoscopic views of commuters."
  • Suzanne Sease features Oseh Shalom ("Praying for Peace"), the personal project of Rachel Wisniewski, an independent photojournalist based in Philadelphia, on Beth Shalom Temple in Cuba. Images of the project can be seen on Wisniewski's site.
  • Dahlia Ambrose showcases the Soulful Portraits of Animals by Brad Wilson. "I found it impossible to stand a few feet away from any wild animal, with no barriers between us and remain unmoved," he says. "Despite the physical closeness, my first reaction was not one of fear, but of fascination and admiration."
  • Zach Sutton explains How Lens Adapters Work and Why You Should Try Them. Comprehensive and up to date.
  • Kirk Tuck bought another TTArtisan lens, the $74 TTArtisan 35mm f1.4. "It's actually a masterful little lens; especially for the price," he writes.
  • Howard Oakley continues his M1 Pro series with some surprising discoveries about Core Management and CPU Performance. "Because of this [Apple's] sophisticated asymmetric core management, measuring CPU performance in the M1 Pro/Max is more complex than when cores are managed symmetrically," he writes.

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