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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Howard Schatz, changing focal lengths, summer fun with photography for kids and Panasonic's Post Focus.

  • In Howard Schatz: A Lifetime of Exploring Vision, Rene Silverman describes the former ophthalmologist's mid-life move into professional photography with 19 accompanying images. Now 74, Schatz says, "For me the joy is in the journey."
  • When "you are on location and the sun's not up yet and the location looks like garbage and the sky is black and featureless and you don't have a single clue as to what to do," Joe McNally suggests you Change Your Lens.
  • Nikon came up with four ways to have Summer Fun With Photography -- and your "awesome, smart and amazing" kids.
  • In How Does Panasonic's Post Focus Work?, Thom Hogan explains that the camera "shoots 50 images at 30 fps with the focus point changed in each one." Rather than just reset focus, though, Hogan asks why Panasonic doesn't offer focus stacking (so the whole image is in focus) too. He suspects it's the glass.

More to come...
