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 turning an errand into a shoot, Pete Souza, the Wilson sisters, the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 lens, using an Apple Watch with your camera and mixing an old lens with a new camera to beat the heat.

  • Julieanne Kost provides the perfect antidote to gardening chores in Photography, the Best Kind of Project Creep. "See what I did there?" she writes. "I took a 30 minute project and turned it into an all day event. But it was worth it. Ha!"
  • Watch's Pete Souza: Behind the Images to hear Souza and former colleague Marcia Nighswander, Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer and professor of visual communications, discuss the stories behind the photos he curated for OHIO's spring, 2017 "Pete Souza Exhibit," a collection of select images from the Obama presidency:
  • In Jane and Louise Wilson on Creating Together, the sisters share how they began collaborating amidst an emerging London art scene and discuss significant works from their career.
  • Thom Hogan reviews the Olympus 7-14mm f2.8 Lens, which is a 14-28mm 35mm equivalent. "I like this lens," he admits. "It's solidly built, has just the focal range I want in a package that doesn't get too big or heavy."
  • In Photography and the Apple Watch, Derrick Story harnesses his watch to his cameras, including the iPhone and DxO One. "Once I realized the additional capability that I have with the watch interacting with my camera phone, it expanded my use of the iPhone itself," he writes. "If nothing else, always having a remote release is really handy."
  • In Today I Mixed Bodies and Lenses Across Brands. Across Time., Kirk Tuck mates a "very old" Olympus 70mm f2.0 lens on a full-frame Sony A7 series camera. The last image takes the cake though, particularly if you're weathering the heat this week.

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