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 Glastonbury, Zack Seckler, Peggy Moffitt, Jesse Rieser, Derek Holmer, tethering, Photos in iOS 13, the iPad Mini 5, lens adapters, the GFX 100 and California's Fair Pay to Play Act.

  • Alan Taylor presents 31 Photos From Glastonbury 2019 where Stormzy, The Killers, Janet Jackson, Billie Eilish, Jeff Goldblum, Kylie Minogue, The Cure, among others performed during the five-day music festival.
  • Stephanie Wade writes, "New York-based photographer Zack Seckler travels the world, capturing the most captivating landscapes for his work. His series Aerial Botswana consists of emotive photographs of pastel-colored scenes taken of the Kalahari Basin, at an altitude of 150 meters."
  • Miss Rosen tells the story of The Photograph That Rocked the Pop Culture Landscape. This episode involved Peggy Moffitt modeling the topless swimsuit designed by Rudi Gernreich in 1964.
  • Amtrak's The National presents a slide show by Jesse Rieser of Yuma, Arizona, to Palm Springs, California by Train. And the same issue names Derek Holmer its photo contest winner for his Glacier National Park From the Empire Builder.
  • Kirk Tuck has fun Tethering his camera using Lightroom. "My camera is floating about seven feet in the air at the end of a long boom arm and it's looking straight down at the big piece of stainless steel I have carefully positioned on the floor," he writes warily.
  • In Photos: What's New in iOS 13, Juli Clover highlights all the changes, including the new video editing tools useful "for simple tweaks," she writes.
  • In Apple iPad Mini 5 Review, Derrick Story decides on Camera+ 2 for his photo app.
  • In response to a reader comment, Lloyd Chambers discusses Lens Adaptability, Lens Adapters, citing five limitations.
  • Where's the GFX 100?, Jim Kasson wants to know. He expected his last week. "I asked my dealer to tell me what was going on and he said they didn't receive any GFX 100s at the time of the first shipments to dealers and has had no communication from Fuji about when they should expect the cameras," he reports.
  • In the first part of Learn the Rules Like a Pro, So You Can Break Them Like an Artist, Greenberg & Reznicki point out, "California's 'Fair Pay to Play Act,' would prevent California state and private universities from prohibiting athletes from earning compensation as a result of the use of the student's name, image or likeness.'" That "opens up a new avenue of income for both the student/athletes and photographers," they write. But "the issues surrounding the use of college athletes and just what they can consent to are not settled."

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