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 Feature Shoot awards, Institut pour la Photographie, Thilde Jensen, Russell Brown, a better dSLR, best-selling cameras of the decade and a free portrait webinar.

  • Winners of the Feature Shoot Emerging Photography Awards have been announced by the site. The judges selected 31 photographers for the group show at Aperture Gallery in Chelsea, N.Y., on Jan. 23.
  • Hannah Abel-Hirsch visits Institut pour la Photographie in Lille, France, a new venue committed to photographic culture. It won't open until 2021, "but in the meantime it has been readied to offer a taster of what's to come," she writes.
  • Jonathan Blaustein takes a look at The Unwanted, a photobook on the homeless by Thilde Jensen. Among photographers "the subject has been contentious recently, with some suggesting that no one should ever photograph the homeless, without themselves being homeless," Blaustein writes. But he doesn't buy that because "artists should be allowed to explore anything they want."
  • The Russell Brown Show has returned. Episode 1 and 2 dives into night photography in Tokyo using a smartphone and Lightroom.
  • In Can a Better dSLR Exist? Thom Hogan presents five paths forward for dSLRs. The first is body-based image stabilization, a no-brainer. The second will take a while, the third is probably in the realm of computational photography, the fourth will kill your battery almost instantly and the fifth would require a third hand. But fun to dream.
  • Just for some perspective, KEH's content specialist Luca Eandi lists Our Best-Selling Cameras of the Decade. We only mention it because our Nikon D300 ranked fourth and our D200 eighth.
  • Rocky Nook will host 10 Tips for Capturing More Authentic Portraits, a free webinar with Chris Orwig on Thursday, Jan. 9 at 11 a.m. PST. Registration required. The company is also offering a 40 percent discount on any camera guide when you use the code CONFUSED19 at checkout.

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