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 Jeffrey Conley, Lelanie Foster, live music photographers, Daniel Meadows, Z 9 event photography, an Apple Studio Display firmware update and Apple's self service repair.

  • In Mindful Nature, Mee-Lai Stone presents Jeffrey Conley's black-and-white photographs of the natural world on exhibit until June 18 at Bildhalle Zurich. "Whether in the United States, Iceland, New Zealand or the Engadine in Switzerland, his sublime images do not just depict the landscape; they reveal nature, experienced as a spiritual place," she writes.
  • In Photographing a New Justice, Mike Johnston tells how Lelanie Foster went about taking the official photograph of Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson. "She played Sade for the shoot, because she finds it calming and 'a nice vibe.' Justice Brown Jackson not only approved, she even danced a little," he writes.
  • Brad Moore lists five Live Music Photographers You Should Know, including Michelle Grace Hunder, Greg Noire, Ashley Osborn, Andy Barron and Anna Lee.
  • In A Steeplejack Takes a Break in Midair, Chris Broughton interviews Daniel Meadows about his best photograph. "Even in a light breeze a chimney will sway and I watched the horizon tilting slowly, first one way, then the other," Meadows recalls the scene.
  • In Nikon Z 9 Goes to an Event, Jim Kasson takes the Z 9 to a middle school play. He used a 70-200mm f2.8 S zoom set wide open. ISO 1000 and -1 EV got him shutter speeds between 1/125 and 1/800 second. "I think this should be a wonderful event camera," he writes. "Silent shutter with very little of the silent shutter downsides is very appealing for this kind of work."
  • Jason Snell gets Hands on With Apple's Studio Display Firmware Update. He has two of them at the moment, so he could do a side-by-side comparison. "This is still a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera that's being dynamically cropped and while firmware fixes can definitely improve the image output, there are limits to those changes," he writes.
  • Apple's Self Service Repair Now Available, providing repair manuals and genuine Apple iPhone parts and tools through the Apple Self Service Repair Store. You can also read the Apple Repair manual at the new site.

We've updated our Friday Slide Show: Jones Street Tank with images of the tank itself taken from the alley behind the pump station. And there's still more to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
