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 Marcus Wainwright, German aerials, the early days, 40mm Micro Four Thirds lenses, Micro Four Thirds sports photography, Chris Moore, concert photography and a copyright troll.

  • The Purist is an amusing interview with Rag & Bone CEO Marcus Wainwright about his abstract monochrome photography. He gave up street photography after seeing a 90ish subject chase a street photographer, shouting, "Give me the camera!"
  • In Human Landscapes of Germany, Alan Taylor presents 28 aerial photos beyond the range of drones that show the intriguing abstract patterns of ordinary locations. And sharpness is not all, as number 16 proves.
  • Rena Silverman interviews curator Mazie Harris for a look at The Earliest Days of American Photography, a new exhibit at the Getty. "I think we tell this tidy story about how the history of photography works. But the real history is a lot messier and more interesting than that,"Harris said.
  • Roger Cicala and Aaron Closz continue their Micro Four Thirds lens tests asking Are the 40s Fabulous? A few are indeed. And they name names.
  • Derrick Story already has his favorite 40, which he uses at Oracle Arena where on an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II it is small enough to get by security. He details the settings that make it work for sports photography in a way no smartphone can touch.
  • In The Godfather of Catwalk Photography Presents His Life's Work, Elizabeth Paton celebrates the achievement of 83-year-old Chris Moore, whose images were published in the book Catwalking late last year.
  • In Concert Photography, Robin Wong tells what he learned shooting a dress rehearsal of an unusual rock concert using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and three M.Zuiko lenses: 12mm f2, 45mm f1.8 and 75mm f1.8.
  • In Trolls Who Live Under Bridges Upset by Judge's Comparison, Greenberg and Reznicki report on two judges who took on attorney Richard Liebowitz, who filed 500 copyright cases in two years. "A representation by an attorney that he/she files 'a lot of copyright cases' in and of itself ought to make any prospective client leery," they write.
