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 Stockholm, the Olympus PEN-Fa, Joe McNally at a bar, Hank Willis Thomas and a BorrowLenses discount.
- One thing stills can do (that those dramatic but brief video segments on TV news does not) is place you in the scene, not just at it. In Mourning the Victims of the Stockholm Attack, Alan Taylor presents 25 photos that put you among the mourners as they reaffirm life itself.
- In Five Reasons Why the Olympus PEN-F Crushed It in San Francisco, Derrick Story shows some of his images from the little camera captured at this weekend's workshop.
- Joe McNally provides a Creative Live Wrap of his three-day primer on the life of a photographer for Creative Live. It starts in a bar with "four video cameras, a class of about 18 wonderfully patient and forgiving photogs and my least favorite lunch of just about all time," he writes.
- On Thursday, Pier 24 will present a free lecture by Hank Willis Thomas at the Minnesota Street Project in San Francisco.
- BorrowLenses is offering 15 percent off rentals through April 17 when you use the code BLTAXDAY15.
