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 Ralph Gibson, Dayron Vera, flash or continuous lighting, the Elinchrome ELB 500, the Olympus OM-D E-M5 (and Nikon D2XS), AMZL Photo on Delivery and the recent court decision on embedding images.

  • Jordan G. Teicher explores The Surrealist Photos of Ralph Gibson with a healthy selection of images. "I'm not the music. I'm the radio through which the music plays," Gibson says.
  • Capture One has posted its first Dedication Campaign video. The 1:09 clip features Barcelona-based dance and portrait photographer Dayron Vera describing taking up photography following his career as a dancer:
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Strobist Lighting Cookbook series with Flash or Continuous, Light Is Light. Flash and ambient light, he writes, "go hand in hand, espcially when we are combining and balancing them in a single photo."
  • Hans Van Eijsden reviews the Elinchrome ELB 500 studio flash. He calls it a dream come true.
  • Robin Wong revisits the Olympus OM-D E-M5. And Kirk Tuck recently took a walk with his newly-acquired Nikon D2XS. The appreciation of older digital gear is a real retro trend.
  • Amazon drivers have started taking photos to prove packages were delivered. The company calls it AMZL Photo on Delivery. Addresses marked confidential are excluded.
  • Greenberg and Reznicki discuss the Court Decision on Embedding Images which involved publishing tweets of Justin Goldman's photo of New England quarterback Tom Brady, which Goldman had posted with Snapchat, not Twitter. His friends had tweeted the image. And the court found publishers who embedded those tweets had violated Goldman's "exclusive display right."
