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 Murray Close, digital resolution, iPhone Photo Albums and Danielle Freeman.

  • In Behind the Creation of Iconic Images in the Film Industry, Murray Close discusses (and displays) the publicity stills he took with a Leica S for the movie Free State of Jones starring Matthew McConnaughey. He learned how to use a rangefinder from Stanley Kubrick who showed him the ropes on a Leica M4. "His symmetry and composition and his use of perspective were etched in my young photographers mind during those three years I worked for him and I find myself on a daily basis examining my frame and wondering what his criticism of it would be," he says.
  • Ming Thein considers Digital Resolution, particularly "why enough will probably never be enough and how to solve it." Here's the thing, he writes, "I think the limitation of digital lies in the geometry and shape of the photosites, not the number or density."
  • In How To Use iPhone Photo Albums To Manage Your Photos, Kate Wesson shows you how to easily organize your photos into different iPhone photo albums. "The main thing to remember is the difference between the All Photos/Camera Roll album and the other albums within the Photos app," she writes.
  • Danielle Freeman recounts My Lesson in Conservation Rigging at the Getty using her camera to record the behind-the-scenes action. "The challenge for me was to quickly shoot their actions in a lab with lighting that is not conducive for taking action photos," she writes.

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