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 flamingos, 1997, a TTAstisans lens, high key lighting, allergies and Andrew Molitor.

  • Grace Ebert features the Pink-Plumed Flamingos in Mexico's YucatÁN Peninsula photographed by Claudio Contreras Koob. "Both elusive and widely recognized, the birds are increasingly vulnerable due to pollution, the effects of the climate crisis and human encroachment and the photos illuminate the potential loss if they're left unprotected," she writes. Flamingo includes 132 of Contreras Koob's shots.
  • In Travel Back in Time to 1997, the Getty Center invites you to revisit the era in which it opened using photos to set the scene.
  • After enjoying a TTAstisans lens on his Leica CL, Kirk Tuck buys one for his Panasonic GH6 and becomes a victim, he writes, of Sample Variation.
  • Dahlia Ambrose explores High Key Lighting for studio portraits.
  • In How to Shoot Spring Photos if You Have Allergies, the Phoblographer has a few suggestions. Wearing a clean mask is one of them.
  • In Award Winning!, Andrew Molitor reports, "I am an award-winning photographer now. I can no longer talk to you unless you have also won an award I'm afraid." And then goes on to tell you all about it.

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