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 Bill Cunningham, inside a Golden Gate Park windmill, Richard Ross, the Kamlan 50mm f1.1 Mark II, Patrick Cullis, shooting in canyons and PhotoZoom Pro 8.

  • The Amazing Treasure Trove of Bill Cunningham is about "a big new picture book organized by decade and with more than 700 photographs." Culled from "hundreds of thousands of contact sheets and prints, many of which have detailed notes and drawings from couture shows in Paris and New York appended to them," according to his copy editor Alex Ward.
  • Grant Marek shows you The Never-Before-Seen Interior of One of the Golden Gate Park Windmills. Neal Hemming takes him through the Murphy Windmill (the southern one). The presentation is ruined with click bait but you can see an index of the images, click on an image and arrow through a slide show.
  • Photographer Richard Ross, who has documented the U.S. juvenile justice system for almost a decade, talks about giving the kids in the failed system a voice. "When you have kids from one ZIP code that are more likely to go to prison than college, then society has failed them, rather than they have failed us," he says.
  • Derrick Story calls the $249 Kamlan 50mm f1.1 Mark II "a real gift" for Micro Four Thirds shooters.
  • Chasing the Eclipse follows Patrick Cullis as he sends a Canon 5D Mark II with a 17-40mm lens into the stratosphere on a weather balloon to capture the moon eclipsing the sun.
  • David Williams has a few Pro Slot Tips for shooting in "slot" canyons that include preferred white balance settings, bracketing, stability issues and best time of day.
  • Jim Kasson tests PhotoZoom Pro 8 in his roundup of smart resizing software.

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