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 Mexican landscapes, a postmortem on a shoot, a pilot copyright program, shutter shock and Apple iPhone tutorials.

  • Alan Taylor presents 30 images of the Human Landscapes of Mexico. "Over the past week, I took a virtual tour with Google Earth, and wanted to share some of these snapshots of the human landscape in Mexico," he writes.
  • Kirk Tuck reflects on What Worked and What Didn't? He's just returned from a video/still shoot with raves for Andrew Reid's picture profiles and a 28mm lens.
  • Copyright attorney Carolyn Wright describes a Pilot Program for Bulk Submissions of Copyright Registration Applications, which is "limited to claims to single literary works that have a single author, where all content that appears in the work was created and is owned solely by that single author." Apparently some photographers also write.
  • In Fujifilm GFX 50S Shutter Shock, Jim Kasson dives into the trouble with shutter shock on mirrorless cameras in general.
  • Apple has debuted How to Shoot on iPhone 7, a Web site with lessons for shooting portraits, close-ups, vertical panos, without a flash, action, a selfie with a timer, a unique angle, stills while filming, with street light, a bold and simple image, during golden hour, a one-handed selfie, a selfish, a sunset silhouette, a group portrait and a backlight subject. The veryshort lessons (under a minute with many under half a minute) are a little subversive, going beyond the shutter button to some editing, too. You can do a lot of this with an older iPhone, too, BTW.

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