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 Walter Vogel, Star Wars Families, event photography and a pinhole camera.

  • Düsseldorf photographer Walter Vogel is being inducted into the Leica Hall of Fame after seven decades of work. "I consider myself a person who looks backwards and I see my photography as the ideal memoir," he says. He talks about his career in this 12:43 video:
  • Star Wars Families: The Photographers takes a look at the 10 photographers selected for the BJP commission to document the role Star Wars has played in the lives of families in 10 countries: Ying Ang in Australia, Carlotta Cardana in Italy, Daniel Chatard in Germany, Josh Adam Jones in the United Arab Emirates, Kovi Konowiecki in the U.S., Jason Koxvold in India, Piczo in Japan, Camila Svenson in Brazil, Pascal Vossen in South Africa and Alice Zoo in the UK.
  • So how did Kirk Tuck's night of event photography go? He tells all. "It's funny," he notes, "there must be something odd with make-up these days as the camera will often 'see' all the people in the frame with no make-up with absolute accuracy but the person with lots of make up takes on a color cast that's hard to remove."
  • Dan Ginn shows you How to Make a Pinhole Camera and Develop Your Own Photos at Home. He uses photo paper for the medium, which means you'll have to scan the print to invert the tones to get a positive image. Which you can do on your smartphone, he points out. Nice high school project.

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