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 Luke Shadbolt, Fred Baldwin, Kristina Makeeva, ImagePrint, a $10,800 bid, Glenn Randall, the Getty Fire and a Topaz webinar today.

  • Laura Staugaitis presents the Powerful Portraits of Enormous Ocean Waves by Luke Shadbolt. The color and black-and-white prints measure 6x3.3 feet, which (when you think about it) is still not life size.
  • Miss Rosen tells the story of The Photographer Who Used the Camera as a Passport to Freedom. That would be Fred Baldwin, whose persistence got him in to see Picasso after being turned away several times. It was only among the first occasions his camera took him "where I would have never gone without it."
  • In Imagination Unbound, SmugMug Films features Russian photographer Kristina Makeeva, whose photographs capture "a beautiful blend of fashion and travel in an exemplary display of magical realism." The film will be released on Nov. 4 at 8 a.m. PT, but here's the trailer:
  • Kevin Raber talks to John Pannozzo of Colorbyte Software about ImagePrint in the first of a three-part series. "Photographers aren't printing," Raber writes. "If they need prints at all, many send their work to a lab and have them made there. A lot of photographers have not attempted to learn printing because, as I have heard them say, it is too hard." ImagePrint helps lessen the load.
  • Craig Oppenheimer prices Architectural and Still Life Images for Grocery Store. The deal is for unlimited use of 83 images in perpetuity. The photographer got the job with a bid for $10,800.
  • Landscape Photographer Glenn Randall advises Never Eat Breakfast Before Midnight. "Landscape photography requires an awful lot of getting up early and staying up late, driving hard and hiking hard," he writes. "Sleep is for landscape photographers who don't drink enough coffee."
  • Caitlin Shamberg and Annelisa Stephan explain Why the Getty Center Is the Safest Place for Art During a Fire. Monday's Getty Fire consumed 600 acres around the Getty Center, "a marvel of anti-fire engineering."
  • Topaz is hosting Mastering Masking in the New Mask AI, a free live webinar with Joel Wolfson today at 1 p.m. PST.

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