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 women photographing women, Julia Margaret Cameron, Matthew Shain, a Yosemite night shot, Cristina Mittermeier and parts shopping with your camera.

  • In The Photographer Who Documents the Former Sites of Confederate Monuments, Christopher Bonanos profiles California photographer Matthew Shain, who started in New Orleans and has now covered five states. Shain found "a lot of people who liked the monuments didn't connect with the history they really represented -- they were just landmarks that they were used to. And other people liked them for very dark-hearted reasons."
  • Pratik Naik gets Chris Magsino to spill about his night shot The Lights of Yosemite. "I paired the D850 with the Nikkor 14-24 to capture the whole valley using this wide setup. Set at f11, ISO 100 at 30 seconds, I first shot the scene to capture the landscape at blue hour to minimize camera noise," Magsino says.
  • In Starving-Polar-Bear Photographer Recalls What Went Wrong, Cristina Mittermeier recalls photographing a distressed polar bear in the Arctic to illustrate the effects of climate change. She writes, "The mission was a success, but there was a problem: We had lost control of the narrative."
  • In Amazon Launches Part Finder, Sarah Perz reports on the new mobile feature "that lets you point your camera at the item in question, so Amazon can scan it, match it, then direct you to matching items from its product catalog."

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