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 a series on robots, German nature photographers, NASA Antares rocket launch, Kampung Datuk Keramat, beating the grind, a $32K bid, three free ebooks and hard drive reliability stats.

  • Rosie Flanagan presents a series by Vincent Fournier that Humanizes Robots. He blurs "the lines between fiction and reality," she writes, to present "an equally absurd and probable future in which man and robot move together through the world." We found something reassuring about seeing a robot seated in a waiting room.
  • The Guardian has published the winners of the German Nature Photographers of the Year contest.
  • Justin Hartney breaks down his shots of the NASA Antares Rocket Launch, including the post processing. "I have learned three lessons after completing my third rocket launch," he notes.
  • Robin Wong has been Exploring Kampung Datuk Keramat. "This particular excursion was just a quick survey of potential photography opportunities and I am pleased to report that I was impressed," he writes.
  • Kirk Marsh advises you to Shake It Up! when it all feels like too much of a grind. "Make a simple personal project. For you and only you. What would you like to create? Start doing that thing now," he writes.
  • Craig Oppenheimer prices a Lifestyle Shoot for Telecommunications Company at over $32,000. "The photographer was awarded the project with only some negotiation regarding the shoot date," he notes.
  • Light Stalking lists Three Free Ebooks on coastal landscape shooting. "Creating compelling coastal shots is not an easy task, but part of the challenge is learning the different styles and techniques you'll need to ensure you capture your creative vision."
  • Backblaze has published its Hard Drive Stats Q1 2019 on its 106,238 spinning hard drives in its cloud storage ecosystem spread across three data centers.

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