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 PF Bentley, Kelby's tethering kit, selfie taker categories and publishing technology.

  • In PF Bentley From Photographing Politics to Paradise, Brian Smiths interviews the former Time magazine photographer. Bentley finds his Sony a6300 a lot like his old Leica and shoots Raw for its dynamic range. The photos are all paradise, no politics, too.
  • Scott Kelby not only describes My Lightroom Tethering Rig From Top to Bottom, he actually arranged for Thether Tools to offer the kit for between $587.55 and $607.55 (depending on configuration). Tripod not included.
  • Andrea Christensen asks What Kind of Selfie Taker Are You? The answer comes from "a cohort of BYU communications master's students" (five makes a cohort) who "showed that individuals' motives often extend beyond self-obsession and showing off." The researchers identified three researchers identified three categories of selfie-takers: communicators, autobiographers and self-publicists.
  • September 1942: Making the New York Times took us back to the days when type was cast in hot lead. We have our own version of that here where you can see a slide show of images from the 1950s and the 1990s of a magazine office and print shop.

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