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 the Arctic, Graciela Iturbide, freezing motion and cleaning your camera sensor.
- In Above Canada and Greenland With NASA's Operation IceBridge, Alan Taylor presents 28 images of the other-worldly Arctic where scientists are monitoring ice loss.
- In YA Graphic Biography About Photographer Graciela Iturbide Coming in September, Tristan Bravinder reports this will be "the first book about the photographer intended for a young-adult audience." And its a graphic novel.
- Thom Hogan elucidates QAD Shutter Speeds or, you know, how to freeze motion. It depends on "the focal length used, the subject's speed, the distance to the subject, and the direction of the movement," he points out. And provides charts, the second of which simplifies the task according to the subject.
- Blake Steed provides a modern Guide to Cleaning Your Camera Sensor based on the experienced gang at LensRentals. Excellent advice using both old and new tools and techniques. The one thing he forgot to mention was your camera's sensor cleaning option (which shakes dust off). Try that first and use it regularly.
