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. This time we look at Bayard Wootten, Cira Crowell, the Sigma 60mm DC DN lens and an upcoming Lightroom update.

  • Rene Silverman's Single Mother, Pioneering Photographer: The Remarkable Life of Bayard Wootten is accompanied by 13 remarkable black-and-white images from the early 20th century Pictorialist who made more than a million images in her lifetime. A divorced single mother, she was trying to support her family. And wore a uniform to work every day.
  • In Nepal Illuminated, Cira Crowell says her academic background in the arts is "critical to understand the progression of photography, identify and study inspirations even if they seem to be opposites, for example, Dorothea Lange and Hiroshi Sugimoto."
  • Kirk Tuck shows off some test shots with That Cheap Sigma 60mm DC DN Lens he just bought. "All of these images were done on the Sigma 60mm at either f2.8 or f4.0," he reports. Sharp wide open, too.
  • Adam Ottke takes a Hands-On First Look With a New Lightroom Update That Promises Faster Speeds. Expected to be released "in a few short weeks," the update will most benefit systems "with more than 12-GB of RAM or with processors that feature eight or more cores," he writes.

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