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 Clemente Vergara, Andrew Hofstetter, personal projects, beginner's mind, fresh phone photography tips, photo transfer apps and Andrew Molitor.

  • Stephanie Wade profiles Barcelona-based photographer Clemente Vergara whose photography celebrates Minimalism, Geometry and Bright Color. "What I enjoy most," he says, "is when I shoot a modest building or the architectural details that would be neglected, but I succeeded in extracting something worthy of watching."
  • Among the Guardian's Best Photos of the Day, is Reuters photographer Andrew Hofstetter's chilling image of Greta Thunberg being ignored by Donald Trump as he crosses the room to meet the press.
  • In Working Personal Projects Into Our Daily Lives, Julieanne Kost reveals how she spent the time driving from Virginia to California. "Although we didn't have time to make a lot of stops, I figured that I could at least take a few photographs along the way," she writes.
  • In Beginner's Mind, Harold Davis writes, "I am now engaged in playing with a new body of work that involves my photography of flowers for transparency, LAB inversions, photography of pure light though colored liquid in glass bottles and post-production."
  • In Phone Photography, David Williams offers a few tips for using your smartphone's camera. Short and sweet.
  • In Best Photo Transfer App for iPhone, Kate Wesson compares four apps that provide easy transfers to local devices.
  • In History of Photography -- Gertrude Käsebier, Andrew Molitor writes that the portraitist who photographed performers with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show "was interested in the individual character of people and thus felt that her job was to reveal the individual character of the subject." In contrast to Edward Curtis, he notes, who "focused on clothing, regalia and other trappings" to portray the culture of Native Americans.

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