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 headshots, Kitty de Jong, using a Manfrotto Xtreme pole for a new perspective and copyright infringement options for unregistered images.

  • Chris Gillett trumpets "squints and tiny smiles" in How Peter Hurley Made a Headshot Photographer Out of Me, her Kelby guest blog today. Her portrait of Victoria suggests "the soul can communicate through the face beyond its mere physical appearance." Plus, it's just a gorgeous image.
  • In How Kitty de Jong Takes Great iPhone Landscape Photos, Kate Wesson reveals the tips and techniques of the Amsterdam photographer. "The iPhone has the limitation of not having all the lenses a DSLR has," de Jong says, "so that forced me to think more about the composition."
  • Derrick Story does the math for you in Aerial Photography Without a Drone. His combination of an Manfrotto Xtreme pole, Olympus Air and MeFoto SideKick "is five feet in length, plus my six [plus] feet of height, plus however high I hold it over my head.... You get the idea." Add stilts and the sky's the limit.
  • In Options for Recovering Infringement Damages, attorney Carolyn E. Wright examines the options for redress in the case of Zach Failey who suffered a copyright infringement on an image he did not register with the U.S. Copyright Office.
