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 Egypt's endangered journalists, a commercial contract review, a five-photo wedding book layout and Suzuki Shin'ichi.
- In Telling the Stories of Egypt's Endangered Journalists, photojournalist Mohammed Elshamy remembers his imprisoned colleague Mahmoud Abou Zeid, who remains among 29 other journalists imprisoned in Egypt. The accompanying slide show of Zeid's work is sparse, just five images, but that's part of the story, too.
- In Pricing & Negotiating: Athlete Portraits for a Beer Brand, Craig Oppenheimer goes over the contract details of a one-day shoot in Los Angeles.
- Scott Kelby delivers Another a Custom Print Wedding Book Layout with a free template. This one plugs a gap with a five-photo layout for Lightroom's Book module.
- In Hand-Tinted Photographs Capture Japan on the Brink of Modernization, Brian Dundon presents a few 19th century images by Suzuki Shin'ichi from the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
