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 Los Angeles, portraiture, Sally Mann, ISO and the format revealed.

  • Miss Rosen takes a look at Aperture's Los Angeles issue, which features the works of Awol Erizku, Paul Mpagi Sepuya, Lise Sarfati, Catherine Opie, and Mona Kuhn, among others. "Los Angeles provides a portal between the present and the past, using photography as the bridge between how we see and think about the fundamental questions of the human condition and the ways in which they are manifest in the challenges we face in search of liberty and justice for all," she writes.
  • In Shooting for the Stars, Manfred Baumann talks about shooting portraits professionally. "For me, the biggest challenge is always to get the person in front of me into the right mood," he says.
  • In Angel of Uncertainty, Laura Hubber interviews Sally Mann. She did it for the audio tour of Sally Mann: A Thousand Crossings now showing at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. And the full tour is available free online.
  • In Is ISO Fake? Thom Hogan jumps into the debate. And Jim Kasson is not far behind with Nikon Z6/Z7 Fake ISOs, who suggests called ISO below base JPEG ISOs instead of fake ones.
  • In Coda: Guess the Format, Ming Thein reveals the camera he used to take the photos in his previous post. "But the point of all this is of course that at these (typical) viewing sizes: it's pretty damn difficult to see any difference," he observes. Especially when you subject the camera images to editing software.

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