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 Russian anti-corruption protests, Catherine Leroy, Panasonic's plans, cropping bird feet and George Saunders.
- In Anti-Corruption Protests Across Russia, Alan Taylor presents 28 photos of the March 26 protest across Russian against government corruption.
- Fujifeed has published an interview with former White House photographer Chuck Kennedy. "No matter what the subject, we strive to refine a style, vision or technique," he says. "Otherwise, why bother!"
- In The Greatest War Photographer You've Never Heard Of, Elizabeth Herman profiles Catherine Leroy, who passed away in 2006. C-Span has a half-hour interview with her as well.
- In Panasonic Hints at Changes in Camera Group, Thom Hogan analyzes the company's recent announcement about the future of its digital camera division in light of what's going on in the industry as a whole.
- In The Cut Off ... Argh!, Moose Peterson discusses how to "crop a critter in the viewfinder" by describing an awkward one chopping off a bird's feet. The trick is "to leave enough room that mentally the viewer can put the feet with the critter."
- Cross-training is good for you. Which is why we found it particularly mind-expanding to read What Writers Really Do When They Write by George Saunders. It just may enlighten your post processing behavior.
More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
