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 American Colony in Jerusalem, Doug Mills, going pro, lighting principles and Sony a9 worst cases.

  • Rian Dundon presents a few images by The American Colony in Jerusalem from the early 1900s. The colony's photo department eventual became Matson Photo Service and its archives are now held by the Library of Congress.
  • In A Photo of James Comey Takes the Internet by Storm, Stephen Hiltner talks to New York Times photographer Doug Mills about his wide angle shot before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday. "Comey had handed out his testimony the day before, so some of the air was already out of the balloon," Mills describes the scene. "And for me, what that meant was: A tight shot showing one of Comey's facial expressions wasn't likely to be the most intriguing picture.
  • Ming Thein and Robin Wong sit down to discuss On Going Pro. "I only have one rule: so long as there's more at the end of the month than the beginning -- $1 or $10,000 -- that's fine," Wong says.
  • In Simplifying the Complexities of Lighting in Photography, Zach Sutton explains "how light travels and is used within photography." His lighting workshops have persuaded him most people don't understand how light works.
  • Jim Kasson has published Worst-Case Sony a9 Battery Draw and Worst-Case Sony a9 Self Heating, his 22nd and 23rd posts on the camera.
