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 Iaritza Menjivar, Todd Owyoung, Kelly DeLay and a Sale-A-Bration.

  • "Sometimes I wonder if my parents will ever understand why I make pictures," Iaritza Menjivar begins Honoring a Debt to Immigrant Parents. So she took these 24 photos of their daily life with captions that tell stories from long ago. "Their sacrifices were worthwhile, for my cousins and for me."
  • In Rocking Event Photography with the Nikon D500, live concert photographer Todd Owyoung tells what happened when Nikon invited him to test drive the D500, its new DX-format dSLR. That requires ISO settings no lower than 3200. "Even when ambient light conditions required ISO 12800 or higher, the D500's AF performed to a T -- making it easy to freeze in-motion, low contrast subjects," he reports.
  • Mark Gelband interviews storm-chasing photographer Kelly DeLay On DIY cameras, dodging lightning, double rainbows and supercells. "Storm Chasing is not easy," he reflects. "It is very taxing, physically and mentally. I have averaged 19,000 miles each chase season between the months of April to June the last five years."
  • BorrowLenses is celebrating its ninth anniversary with a Sale-A-Bration (we don't make this stuff up) of a nine percent discount when you use the code BLTURNS9 through June 16.

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