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 bullfighting, the DX format in the mirrorless age, a contract negotiation, the new MacBook Pro, a copyright question, a residency program and book discount.

  • Rena Silverman discovers Velcro is the secret to having (bloodless) Bullfights in California where animal rights are staunchly defended. "I think that's what I was really drawn to initially was just, how does that exist in this place that seems so progressive and is leading the pack as far as animal rights?" wondered photographer Melissa Lyttle. Well, it's a religious experience, see.
  • In What's Up With DX? Tom Hogan writes, "If DX is going to survive into the mirrorless age, Nikon needs a D70-type of camera that brings the dSLR-faithful across the river Mirrorless."
  • The Wonderful Machine negotiates a contract for a Food, Product, and Lifestyle Library Shoot. The product was cookware, the "library" simply refers to unlimited use of the images. And for once the budget was reasonable.
  • Lloyd Chambers sums up his evaluation of the 2018 MacBook Pro, "Do I want one? Yes. Will I buy one? No because (a) the configuration I want is hugely expensive and (b) the 2017 iMac 5K has an unbeatable display and I cannot work efficiently on a laptop display and (c) I expect a 6-core iMac 5K this fall."
  • Is a Manipulated Photo of a Sculpture Fair Use? Carolyn Wright explores the confusing case history before answering that "only a court can say for sure."
  • The Fall 2018 CHAW Darkroom Residency is open for applications. The residency provides an opportunity for an artist to execute a new body of work, evolve an existing body of work or develop a project in the Capitol Hill Arts Workshop darkroom in Washington, DC.
  • Rocky Nook's photography book Deal of the Week is Wide-Angle Photography by Chris Marquardt. Take 40% off this week only with code WIDE40.
