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 This time we look at Bill Cunningham's unpublished photos, a flash for Sony cameras, Harry Benson and advice for the new year.

  • In Bill Cunningham, Unpublished Photos, the fashion photographer's long-time collaborator John Kurdewan takes another look at what we didn't get to see until now. "We would start at 10 a.m. every day with our coffee, and he would go over each and every photo. And with each you got a story," Kurdewan sets the scene.
  • Kirk Tuck found a cost-effective TTL flash for current Sony cameras, which is no small feat. It uses a lithium battery good for 600 shots and has "the new multifunction flash foot that interfaces with the same multifunction flash shoe found on all the newer Sony cameras" for about a third the price of a comparable Sony flash.
  • In 'Photography Is Not a Team Sport', Emily Anne Epstein presents 14 of Harry Benson's photographs, including the stories behind them. "Perseverance counts," the 87-year-old says.
  • Derrick Story muses about The Security Myth of full-time employment. There really isn't any. And if you work for yourself, he write, keep busy and come up with new ideas. "This is going to be a challenging year for all of us. Let's be ready."

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