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 the earth, Corinna Hopmann, Slinkachu, a rose, the FBI's photo cache, Apple, a proposal, Affinity Photo and infringement.

  • If you'd like to get away from it all (without swiveling out of your chair), join Alan Taylor in The Past Eight Months in Orbit. The world looks better with some critical distance.
  • In Style, Elegance, and Intimacy Through the Graceful Lens of Corinna Hopmann, Stephanie Wade highlights the portfolio of the Berlin-based photographer.
  • Slinkachu remodels and paints miniature model train set characters, which he then places and leaves on the street. "It is both sculpture, street art installation and photography," he explains. And delightful.
  • Harold Davis gets Lost in the Folds of a Rose. "Each petal is a curve and a valley and a landscape of pleasure. Why go anywhere else besides the country of the rose?" he asks.
  • Michael Balsamo reports Watchdog Says FBI Has Access to About 640M Photographs. That would be the 36 million mug shots in the Interstate Photo System plus driver's licenses in 21 states plus miscellaneous photo databases, according to Gretta Goodwin of the Government Accountability Office who testified at a congressional hearing recently. And you were worried that Square Sends Millions of Digital Receipts, Sometimes to the Wrong Person.
  • In What Did Apple Just Do?, Thom Hogan list the photography highlights of the WWDC keynote before recommending the best bang-for-your-buck systems you can buy now.
  • Craig Oppenheimer prices Multi-City Portraits for Tech Company. "The goal was to capture environmental portraits of nine employees in front of various landmarks within six different cities," he writes. The contract came in over $63,000 and was accepted.
  • Affinity Photo 1.7 has been released with performance improvements, HDR/EDR monitor support, more effective noise reduction, a new HSL adjustment layer and more (including a 20 percent discount).
  • In Statute of Limitations, Limitations, Greenberg & Reznicki discuss the three-year statute of limitation for filing an infringement lawsuit. Not simple.

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