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 Metallica, Maui, the camera looking at us, Magnum square prints, acquisitions and a goddess.

  • Ross Halfin accompanied Metallica on its Black Album Tour with his camera. The Guardian presents his photos.
  • Suzanne Sease features the personal project of Brad Torchia from a few days on Maui. "The color, the light, the evidence. How much of the experience can I let in? Circling in my head lately: staying open, staying loose. The possibilities seem endless," he says.
  • In On Portraits III, Andrew Molitor considers "the ways we can be looked at" and how the camera's way affects us.
  • In My Experience With Magnum Square Prints, a Reddit poster complains about the quality of the £100 square prints and the organization's poor customer service standards.
  • Hans Hartman lists The Seven Reasons Behind Acquisitions´╗┐in the Photo & Video Industry. We like the last one the best: Acquisition of Technology or Talent.
  • In Bringing a Goddess Back to Life, Erin Migdol talks to Hsiao-Hsuan Chao about bringing a painting from Ruben's workshop back to life. We offer it here as an interesting lesson in color correction with before and after images of the painting illustrating what the aged varnish did to the colors.

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