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 22 Black photographers, shepherds, Obscura 3, the Zeiss Loxia 25mm f2.4, testing and Kelly Smiley.

  • The Phoblographer lists 22 of the Best Black Photographers You Need to Know. "For over a decade, The Phoblographer has had the honor of featuring some of the best black photographers in our industry."
  • In Young Italian Nomads High in the Dolomites, photographer Bruno Zanzottera and anthropologist Elena Dak spend a year following a shepherding family and their flock.
  • In Obscura 3 Takes the App's Design in a New Direction, John Voorhees reviews the alternative Camera app for iOS "which has consistently aimed to deliver pro features that can be used one-handed on an iPhone."
  • In Zeiss Loxia 25mm f2.4 Non-Review, Mike Johnston reflects on his brief adventure with the manual focus lens that costs more than the Sigma equivalent.
  • Kirk Tuck recommends Testing Your Own Gear primarily because reviews are based on the initial product release. There are a few sites that revisit their camera reviews but he's got a point.
  • Steve Almasy and David Close report Rams Photographer Left With Fractured Spine after Kelly Smiley, backing up to take a photo of the Ram quarterback Matthew Stafford and his wife at their request, fell off the stage. Both of her own cameras were broken in the accident as well.

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