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 1919, Weegee, marble quarries, British press photography, Nick Rasmussen, David Severn, Nikon Z Firmware 2.0, an iCloud guide, an ON1 Photo Raw 2019.5 webinar and street photography.

  • Alan Taylor takes A Look Back at 1919 (that's 100 years ago) when "the Treaty of Versailles was signed, as much of the world was still recovering from the devastation of World War I."
  • In Lost Weegee Crime Photos Revealed! (a headline Weegee would love), Christopher Bonanos tells the story of how David Young bought a box of 1930s news photos at a second store in 1970, forgot about them and, years later, realized what he had. He contacted Bonanos, who wrote Weegee's biography. And the ball got rolling.
  • Caroline Kurze presents The Unique Landscape at Marble Quarries photographed by Frederik Vercruysse.
  • The Guardian has published The Best British Press Photography chosen by the British Press Photographers’ Association and on display in the Assignments exhibition at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, London.
  • Summer Wilson presents an 8:40 video detailing Nick Rasmussen's Path to Portrait Photography that "goes beyond the Internet."
  • David Severn describes Men Hunting Rabbits for Beer as his best photograph. "There was something quite timeless about the whole scene -- it reminds me of an old master painting," he writes.
  • Nikon has released Nikon Z Firmware 2.0 with an "Eye-Detection AF feature for still shooting, improved AF performance in low light and AE tracking capability in continuous high-speed (extended) mode." The company also issued a Technical Service Advisory for Users of the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 Cameras to address a problem in which "the vibration reduction (VR) feature in some Nikon Z 6 and Z 7 cameras may not function fully."
  • Jennifer Stewart has written The Complete Guide to Sharing iPhone Photos With iCloud in one single blog post. And it's thoroughly illustrated with relevant screen shots.
  • ON1 Photo Raw 2019.5 Live Event on Thursday, May 16 at 10 a.m. Pacific features Dan Harlacher and Dylan Kotecki showing off the new features and changes in version 2019.5 with a Q&A to follow. Registration required.
  • In The Theater of Indifference, Andrew Molitor suggests that in street photography, "You are photographing not authentic people but rather the performances they put on in this environment."

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