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 Marktown, shooting air-to-air photos, a cloth-shutter Nikon and telling your executor how to sell your photo assets.

  • In Surrounded by Industry, a Historic Community Fights for Its Future, David Gonzalez presents 20 images from Alyssa Schukar's freelance project to document Marktown, a 1917 planned community on the National Register of Historic Places. That hasn't protected it from BP's effort to create a green buffer around its refinery. Schukar made 20 large posters of the residents which were put up on houses and fences to focus the discussion on the people who live there.
  • In Air-to-Air Basics with Sigma's Zoom Lenses, Jim Koepnick offers "a few bullet points on setting up an air-to-air photo mission." There's also lens recommendations and preferred camera settings. Not to mention some inspiring images.
  • Not until images were posted on eBay did the seller learn that grandfather's old SLR was a Rare Cloth-Shutter Nikon F, the 89th Nikon F, assembled in 1959. There's three days left to bid on it with the latest bid over $2,200.
  • In Where There's a Will, There's a Way, Greenberg and Reznicki suggest you "make sure that your chosen executor/executrix either knows how to market your works or knows who to seek out for guidance in maximizing future licensing or sales." Legal language to direct your executor/executrix included.

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