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 Holga, Gavin Hooey, Gabriele Micalizzi and the Genaray cutlass wand and ring light kit.

  • In The Holga Story tells the story of the Hong Kong camera company in the words of the photographers who fell in love with the flawed device. The plant closed in 2015 but attempts to revive the brand are already under way. (There should be a law -- well, at least a regulation -- that publishers devote no less than half of the page to the story. This one uses less than a third and the photos suffer for it.)
  • Gavin Hoey describes the cabin he built in his garden to shoot portraits. The limiting factor? Height.
  • Gabriele Micalizzi reflects on his reality TV show experience in One Year After Master of Photography. "The most important thing I learned, but that I already knew, is to be humble and be open to listening to those who criticize or evaluate your work," he says.
  • Moose Peterson plays with The 'Stick' Light, a $198.95 battery-powered LED wand and ring light kit. "While the stick light works pretty darn well, it takes more time to perfect than you might think at first," he writes.

We've also been slavishly updating our Calendar and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
