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 trends in photographic retailing, a portfolio review, taking the kids to two colleges and running around with an expired passport.

  • Kirk Tuck discusses Trends in Photographic Retailing with a photographer/retailer friend who has been "shifting his institutional customers away from Canon and Nikon in favor of Sony and Olympus cameras." Interesting observations about smartphone photography, brick and mortar stores and video, too.
  • Mike Johnston is offering an in-person Portfolio Review for $100/hour up to six hours at his new world headquarters on Keuka Lake with a 50 percent discount if you blog about it.
  • In Two Cans and a String, Nimble Photographer Derrick Story reflects on a weekend in which "our family had to split in two" but was able to keep in touch. It's the back story (ahem) to Documenting the Important Events of Our Lives. "Not once during the day did I pull out my iPhone, grab my boy, and force a self portrait of the two of us," he writes. "This event wasn't about me. It was Max's moment"
  • Terry White takes an expired passport to Canada to shoot the sunset with his Nikon D810 and 28-300mm Nikkor and lives to tell about it. The only time he was stopped was coming back into the U.S.

More to come...
