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 Collin Erie, inkjet paper, shooting styles, used lenses and Instagram.

  • Suzanne Sease presents the personal project of Collin Erie. "As our reality becomes more and more influenced by our screens, I wanted to find a way to visualize this subjective human experience in our contemporary culture," he says.
  • In Inkjet Paper Surfaces and How Paper Is Made, Kevin Raber introduces the next video in his PXL Print It series. It includes a link to a Glossary of Fine Art Related Terms PDF by Dan Steinhardt from Epson.
  • Kirk Tuck compares Shooting Styles with a fellow photographer who spent up to five minutes lining up a wide-angle shot. "I think having the camera in front of my face for more than a few seconds at a time is largely counterproductive," he writes. He goes on to explain how he captured and edited a portrait he took that day. "I get people to pose by being happy, non-threatening and interested in learning more about them."
  • A Reddit thread on Buying a Used Lens lists some recommended sources along with the usual caveats.
  • Gigster asks How Much Money Can Photographers Make on Instagram? "With the rise of the social media age, both traditional photographers and modern artists have grown their Instagram presence and some photographers could now make more money from Instagram posts than from selling prints," the company said.

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