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 that caravan, Lynsey Addario, Cape Perpetua, Rick McGinnis, the Canon 100mm f2.8L IS, Syria's ancient sites, ON1 Photo RAW 2019 recipes, computational photography, the Photo Police and BackLight backpacks.

  • Photos of the Central American Immigrant Caravan presents 38 images of the Central American immigrants "seeking a better life for themselves and their families," as Alan Taylor puts it.
  • In Lynsey Addario Risked Her Life to Bring Us These Amazing Photographs, Rosa Furneaux interviews the war photographer while presenting a few of her images. "I'm basically always torn. I feel like a horrible mother and not the greatest photographer because I can't fully give myself to one or the other," Addario tells her.
  • Crepuscular Coast showcases two evocative images on Cape Perpetua in coastal Oregon by Harold Davis. "The only subject of photography is truly light," he writes.
  • Rick McGinnis looks back on his 30 year career with a little advice for his younger self. "Don’t shoot weddings."
  • Zach Sutton loves his Canon 100mm f2.8L IS and shows you why. But he also lists some more affordable options.
  • Legacy in Stone: Syria Before War by Kevin Bubriski collects 100 black-and-white photographs taken in 2003 to document ancient sites subsequently destroyed by the still on-going Syrian civil war. The book will be published in Jan. 2019.
  • ON1 Photo RAW 2019 Recipes show you how to use the new ON1 Photo Raw 2019, now available in beta, to edit your images. The company will be posting new recipes each week until the full release of ON1 Photo RAW 2019 in mid-November. Here's the first on True Color:
  • Devin Coldewey argues The Future of Photography Is Code because smartphone makers "hit the wall" and were forced to jump over it with computational photography.
  • David Williams had an encounter with the Photo Police as he and Peter Treadway navigated Gatwick airport shooting B-roll video.
  • Think Tank Photo/MindShift Gear reports its BackLight rear-entry backpacks are back in stock. Available in three sizes (36 liter, 26 liter, 18 liter) and two colors, they disappear from stock quickly, the company said. You've been warned.

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