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 circular fisheye photography, 18 Nadar images for $7, HDR and the Zone System, and Michael Rubenstein's camera bag.

  • In Circular Fisheye Photography, Alain Briot describes two types of compositions he's achieved with this unconventional lens whose perspective is certainly unique and therefore of interest, he suggests.
  • The Fall 2015 issue of The Threepenny Review features 18 images by Nadar including portraits, still lifes and several of Pierrot that made us smile. Seven dollars on newsstands near you.
  • Ming Thein has reposted his HDR, the Zone System, and Dynamic Range "as a refresher before I talk about something a little harder to define in the next one."
  • Michael Rubenstein shows you What's in my bag: Street Photography at Sony's new Alpha Universe site. Looks like Noah's ark: two cameras, two batteries, two lenses....

More to come...
