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 photojournalism, trains, new customers, pixel-shift, architectural photography and silence.

  • In A Brief History of Photojournalism, Rachael Towne defines the genre and gives a concise overview of how it has evolved since 1853.
  • Trains on a Siding Near Trona by Harold Davis was shot near the old mining town of Trona, east of the Sierras in California en route to Death Valley.
  • In Introducing New Camera Customers, Thom Hogan introduces two new characters in the great camera customer drama (it's either a tragedy or a comedy, but we'll have to see how it ends to tell).
  • Jim Kasson innocently asks, Does Pixel-Shift Increase Resolution?
  • In Tips for Photographing Architecture While Traveling, Randy Van Duinen provides some nuts and bolts advice. Here's one example. "You will want a Platypod as the world has gone a little crazy about not letting photographers use a tripod," he writes, "but they don't see the Platypod as one and will let you use it."
  • In Silence Is Golden, Greenberg & Reznicki advise, "If you are accused of appropriating, infringing, stealing, copying or misusing the work of another -- whether the claim is credible or pure nonsense -- do not respond."

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