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 clear glass, Jonny Armstrong, Marion Palfi and Arena's free exposure guide.

  • In A Clear History of Glass, Roger traces the interest in clear glass back to the Romans, who prized their wine and wanted to see its color, well, clearly. Salut!
  • On Assignment: Studio in the Wild follows Jonny Armstrong as he stalks wild animals in their natural habitat. Real wild animals, like lions, leopards, bears and elephants. With his Nikon D610 and vintage Nikon SB-2x series strobes, David Hobby explains.
  • In A Meditation on Race, in Shades of White, Maurice Berger presents the work of Marion Palfi, with 13 images from her "consequential but relatively unknown photo book" There Is No More Time: An American Tragedy, a look at post-war Irwinton, Ga. Palfi herself brought a unique perspective to the social conventions of the south, born to an aristocratic Berlin family, working as an actress and model, escaping 1930s Germany by getting into photography in Amsterdam and then marring an American G.I. and moving the U.S.
  • Syl Arena is offering a free download of his Exposure Quick Guide for flash photography. It covers the decision making process in various workflows with both mobile and print layout versions.
