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 David Turnley documenting the University of Michigan's football program, panels with diffusion, John Houck and Constantine Manos.

  • In Competition and Camaraderie: A Look Inside the Michigan Football Team, John Otis reveals the unusual access coach Jim Harbaugh gave to photographer David Turnley as he documented "the struggle, the aspirations, the camaraderie, the competition, the tenacity, the grit of a football team."
  • Kirk Tuck explains why he prefers panels with diffusion to soft boxes for portrait lighting. It's a trick he picked up from watching directors of photography light movie sets.
  • Pier 24 will host a Lecture with John Houck tomorrow at 7 p.m. at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco. Houck's "aggregate photographs" evoke the manner in which imagination and recollection alter and distort our views of our past lives.
  • Magnum photographer Constantine Manos talks about both his career and his show of color images opening at the new Leica Store and Gallery in Boston on Thursday.

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