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 holy clowns, model releases, archeological drone imagery, weatherproof Olympus cameras and DxO Optics Pro 9.

  • In Meet the Dancing Holy Clowns of Mexico, Evelyn Nieves talks to Lujan Agusti about her portraits of clowns who go to church. Set against backgrounds that clash with their costumes, the portraits invite you "to go a little further and see what is hidden behind those characters in these images," Agusti says.
  • Copyright attorney Carolyn Wright answers the question Do You Need Permission to Sell Licenses for Photos of People? "Make sure that you have a model release before using a person’s photograph commercially," she writes. Unless, that is, "the photos were being licensed only for non-commercial/editorial use."
  • In Drone Imagery From Archeologists in Jordan, Jonathan Blaustein interviews archeologists Yorke Rowan and Chad Hill about using drones to photograph at sites in Israel and Jordan.
  • John Lehet just happens to know How Weatherproof Are Olympus Cameras? after finding his E-M5 Mark II four-and-a-half months after losing it in the snow.
  • Once again DxO and Practical Photography are offering a free license for DxO Optics Pro 9 (check this PDF for compatibility with your camera).

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
