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 the Pictar, migrating Google Photos , using PhotoShelter's mobile app and Marco Breuer.

  • Miggo has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Pictar, a camera body for your iPhone 4 through 6 but not the Plus models. Its buttons and dials communicate with a custom app on the phone via high frequency audio signals that consume negligible battery power. And the clamp-style body includes a tripod mount, wrist strap eyelet and cold shoe.
  • John Nack explains How to migrate Google Photos images between accounts without uploading and downloading them all. He outlines the steps but the short version is to use shared albums.
  • Joe McNally assistant Jon Cospito details how the crew uses PhotoShelter's Mobile App to save studio workflow time. Over three years they've extended its usefulness from client delivery to internal collaboration and social media. Which just about covers the entire universe of communications.
  • Pier 24 will host an free lecture April 21 by Marco Breuer, the inaugural recipient of the Larry Sultan Photography Award. Breuer employs photographic techniques that do not rely on the use of a camera, aperture or film, using instead a combination of photogrammic, abrasive and incisive ways of mark making to create images. The lecture will be held at the California College of the Arts, 111 Eighth St. in San Francisco at 7 p.m. tomorrow.

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