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 National Park Service's search for a staff photographer, Boundary Warp, negotiating a contract with unexpected insurance requirements and the late 2015 iMac 5K.

  • NPR's Audie Cornish (with an assist by NPR visuals editor Kainaz Amaria) interviews Rich O'Connor of the National Park Service photography program about the search for a staff photographer, a position once held by Ansel Adams. One catch: large format required. Why? O'Connor cites three reasons: 1) "It captures a huge amount of information on each photograph," 2) "It's also durable over the long-term," (like 500 years) and 3) "It's more difficult to fool around with a large-format photograph and make it look like it's something that it isn't." Oh, another catch: they aren't taking any more applications.
  • Julieanne Kost digs into the new Boundary Warp option for filling out panoramas in Lightroom and Photoshop.
  • In Lifestyle Shoot for a Pharmaceutical Company, you'll see how to negotiate a fee that includes "insurance requirements that the photographer's policy didn’t specifically cover."
  • Lloyd Chambers finds his late 2015 iMac 5K "a powerful workstation" (faster than the fastest 8-core Mac Pro in many tests, he reports) but its compelling features is "its unrivalled ability to display photos that look like 23.5 X 13.125 'chromes.'"

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
