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 caves, Anna Atkins, two Fujifilm cameras, an engagement shoot, photo quality, CES and a scam alert.

  • Scenes From Underground curates 30 photos of caves and tunnels (including subways) from around the world.
  • In Meet the Woman Who Invented Scientific Photography, Jonathon Keats reviews the Anna Atkins exhibit at the New York Public Library. "Following the publication of British Algae, she spent years making photograms with ferns and feathers that fully explored the visual possibilities of depicting familiar objects in unfamiliar ways," he writes.
  • Kirk Tuck compares the Fujifilm T3 and the XH1 after shooting a dress rehearsal. "If you must have an opinion about which of these two cameras I like best I'll say straight out that I prefer using the XH1 to the XT3," he writes.
  • In Creating Lasting Connections on a Tight Timeline, wedding photographers Tia and Shane Brant talk about an hour-long engagement shoot at the end of the day for which they posted the images the same day.
  • In Is Seeing Believing? Depends on Photo Quality, Study Says, Melanie Lefkowitz reports on a recent study that compares high-quality original product shots to both stock images and lower quality images. "People believe the user-generated images represent the actual condition of the product better. Stock images present more uncertainty and raise questions such as whether they are too good to be true."
  • Derrick Story has Five Takeaways From Day 1, CES 2019. "Most lenses for full frame mirrorless, especially the zooms, are just to dang big and heavy," he reports after handling a few at the Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and Sony booths.
  • Scam Alert: Fake Departures Magazine Shoot reproduces the full text of a new scam making the rounds with photographers. "It follows scams in the past where they overpay then ask you to deposit the check then send part of the payment to other people or even return part as an accidental overpayment."
