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 Afghan girls, Brooke Holm, Erika Astrid, Joe McNally, Portrait Impression Balance, the Swebo tripod head, more camera questions and WD's My Cloud OS plans.

  • In Dreams on Hold, the Guardian collects images of Afghan girls as they continue their education. The Taliban "has allowed all boys and younger girls back to class, but has not let girls attend secondary school."
  • Devid Gualandris examines The Bond Between Humans and Nature exhibited in New York-based photographer Brooke Holm's landscape photography. "Shot at height from helicopters and planes, her photographs invite viewers to immerse themselves in nature, by offering a new point of view that pushes our limits of imagination," he writes.
  • Wild at Heart features Erika Astrid's fashion photography. "I couldn't find anyone to shoot my pieces so I started doing it myself, fell instantly in love with photography and never looked back," she says.
  • In Cornwall Dreaming, Joe McNally was allowed to go out on a small fishing boat in the pre-dawn chill (with his camera, of course). "There is not much room at all on a boat like the Silver Queen to simply not be in the way, but I did my best," he writes.
  • Chris Gampat tries Nikon's in-camera fix for Green Skin in the Z 7 II called Portrait Impression Balance.
  • In Poor Man's C1 Cube? Jim Kasson evaluates the $500 Swebo geared tripod head he just acquired.
  • In Five (Unrelated) Camera Questions, Mike Johnston follows up on his How to Buy a Camera piece. Which Thom Hogan commented on in Have Yourself a Merry Little Acquisition.
  • Western Digital has announced "devices that are compatible with My Cloud OS 5 will no longer support prior generations of My Cloud OS" as of Jan. 15, 2022. Most can be upgraded to My Cloud OS 5 to continue to be accessible remotely.

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