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 the Azovstal Steelworks, Fetterman's favorites, San Francisco, music festivals, a Panasonic G9, composition, wings, the 10k Project and Jim Kasson.

  • The Guardian takes us Inside the Azovstal Steelworks in a series of photos published on the Azov Regiment's Telegram channel this week.
  • Painters, Posers and Poodles are among Peter Fetterman's favorite images. Mee-Lai Stone features a few of the 120 images from the gallerist's new book that "tell the story of 20th century photography."
  • The Guardian presents a few of the historical images in the new Taschen book San Francisco: Portrait of a City that "depict the city from its early history to the present day and the many artists, free spirits, dreamers, and entrepreneurs who have landed there."
  • Brad Moore covers Camera Setup and Post-Workflow for Music Festivals in the second part of a two-part series.
  • Good Camera Good Lens Good Location Kirk Tuck has fond memories of his Panasonic G9 with an Olympus 12-100mm Pro lens early one morning "because it's a camera and a system that just gets out of the way."
  • Peter Eastway continues his Mastering the Art of Photographic Composition series with the third part, which just happens to cover the Rule of Thirds.
  • In Calling All Angels, Joe McNally tells the story of a favorite prop. "Twenty years after I commissioned the creation of these wings for a Sports Illustrated assignment, they're still in my garage," he writes.
  • The 10k Project is the third installment of Rob Haggart's series on NFTs. This one references works by August Sanders whose copyrights, it turns out, were in question. "And this is the nut of the problem with NFTs and this project in particular," he writes. "Nobody seems to give a shit about copyright." Why should today be different?
  • Jim Kasson has post the third part of his Observer Metameric Error in Simulated Cameras. "For this post, I sampled the chromaticity more finely and switched to the Macbeth CC24 chart, rather than the natural color spectra," he writes.

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