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 Henryk Ross, wide angle zoom behavior, work-for-hire in California and a Luminous Endowment deal.
- In This Jewish Photographer Documented a Nazi-Controlled Ghetto, Clyde Haberman tells the story of Henryk Ross, official photographer of the Lodz ghetto who took thousands of unofficial photos which he buried for safe-keeping until after the war. Two hundred appear in the Museum of Fine Arts Boston's upcoming exhibit.
- In Painting Zoom Lenses With a Broad Brush -- Roger's Law of Wide Zoom Relativity, Roger Cicala "presents some data from over a hundred lenses, but without any specific numbers and nothing that says a given lens is better or worse than anything else." Why? To "show you something you probably didn't know about zoom lenses."
- In The Unique Work Made for Hire Relationship in California, Carolyn Wright explains how companies that insist on owning copyright in a work for hire situation are also obliged to provide workers' compensation. Unless, you know, they ask you to transfer copyright later.
- In Luminous Endowment Retrospective Book 2 for 1, Kevin Rabor offers two of Michael Reichmann's Retrospective book of photos for a $500 to the Luminous Endowment.
