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 Sheila Pree Bright, Jonathan Hodder, Pawel Jaszcuzuk, the Tokina Opera vs. Pentax D-FA, Joe McNally and Emily Keegan.

  • In Capturing the Struggle for Racial Equality, Past and Present, Maurice Berger continues his Race Stories series with a look at #1960Now: Photographs of Civil Rights Activists and Black Lives Matter Protests, a new book by Sheila Pree Bright. "Photography has always brought awareness about racial injustices that exist in this country," Bright points out. "However, there are questions that weigh heavily on my mind: Have we learned from the past? And who are we as a country?"
  • Neon Nights collects a few of the night scenes photographed by Jonathan Hodder in Southeast Asia. "From an artistic point of view, shooting in neon is a dream," Hodder says. "Technically, however, it can be challenging. Neon is bright -- sometimes too bright -- and during your walk you will still pass through dark patches of the street."
  • In Pawel Jaszcuzuk's project High Fashion, the photographer shoots well-dressed office workers who, after a night on the town, have missed the last train home and fall asleep on the street.
  • Mike Johnston asks, Are the Tokina Opera and Pentax D-FA the Same Lens? He provides a couple of lens diagrams as evidence. "If I knew how to make one of those mouse-on, mouse-off overlay GIFs I'd do it for you," he writes. We thought we'd pitch in:

  • Joe McNally does an Instagram Q&A to answer "a bunch of questions about pix I've posted on our Instagram account." It's a sort of Sudoku for photographers.
  • Diane Smyth interviews Emily Keegan, photography director of The Fader music magazine, about what it takes to get into the publication's pages. "I like all kinds of photography and am happiest when genre, style and hue smash into each other on the same page," Keegan says.

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