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 hanging photos, what Annie Leibovitz is up to, the Leica Oscar Barnack Newcomer Award winner and a consideration of compromises.

  • Terry White explains How to Have Your Photos Printed and Hang Them. He uses Costco and measures from the ground up. Plus some tips for prepping photos in Lightroom.
  • In Annie Leibovitz's Work on 'Women' Is Never Done, Hilarie M. Sheets profiles the photographer and her new subjects in an ongoing personal project.
  • French photographer ClÉMentine Schneidermann won the Leica Oscar Barnack Newcomer Award for her series The unbearable, the sadness, and the rest of South Wales. Oh, and she uses a Mamiya 6 with a 75mm lens.
  • In Tradeoffs, Ming Thein writes, "The difference between life and photography is that compromises made in the former usually come with a mixed bag of consequence that are both unknown since we have affected causality and the flow of events by making a choice, but in photography, we almost always know what we're giving up -- or we think we have a fair idea of it." The potatoes are smaller in photography.

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