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 Justin Bettman, Masako Metz, the reduction method, an $82,000 contract and Copyright Office invitation.

  • In Nostalgic Photos Make Us Long for the NYC of Yesteryear, Ellyn Kail presents a few of Justin Bettman's images from his project Scenes of NYC.
  • Masako Metz is the winner of Outdoor Photographer's Monochrome Vision Assignment with his image Secret Beach. "AS soon as I looked at the view, I decided to take a long exposure shot," he remembers.
  • Mike Langford discusses The Reduction Method in Landscape Photography. "Remember the adage of 'Less is More' when making those clean minimal landscapes that make your jaw drop due to their pure simplicity but it's also necessary to keep them interesting," he writes.
  • Craigh Opopenheimer negotiates an $82,000 contract for A Corporate Lifestyle Project With an Expanding Scope with the right to use 30 images in perpetuity. "The project was awarded and the shoot went off without a hitch," he writes.
  • Carolyn Wright reports the Copyright Office is now inviting public comments on "whether your copyrighted works have been published." Why? Because, as she writes, "Increasingly, applicants whose works have been posted on the Internet or otherwise shared digitally have expressed frustration about how to determine if their works have been published."

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