28 July 2016

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 Pendine Sands Racing, Carol M. Highsmith's lawsuit against Getty images, photojournalists reflecting on the 2016 campaign, an Adorama LED lighting sale and a BorrowLenses/Adobe partnership deal.

  • In Pendine Sands Racing, Johannes Huwe photographs hot rods of the 1930s and 1940s gathered in in South Wales June 4 for a two day race on the beach. All shot in black and white, of course.
  • In Photog Seeks $1 Billion from Getty for Copyright Infringement, David Walker chronicles photographer Carol M. Highsmith's lawsuit against Getty images for charging for the use of 18,755 copyrighted images she had provided to "the Library of Congress since 1988 for use by the general public at no charge." Getty Images actually accused her of copyright infringement for the use of her own image on her Web site.
  • In The 2016 Campaign Through a Photographer's Lens, the NewsHour marked the end of the presidential primary with a look at some of its most compelling photographs by Melina Mara of the Washington Post, Chip Somodevilla of Getty Images, Jim Bourg of Reuters, Mark Peterson of MSNBC and Hilary Swift of the New York Times.
  • Adorama is having a Flashpoint LED Lighting Sale with up to 50 percent off on some items. Sale prices are valid through Aug. 25 and free shipping is included.
  • BorrowLenses is partnering with Adobe to save customers 20 percent on a Creative Cloud Photography Plan subscription from June 29 through June 28, 2017. That's $7.99 a month rather than $9.99 for both Photoshop and Lightroom, Adobe Portfolio and, of course, Adobe's free mobile apps.

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