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 Joe McNally squared, Louis Foubare, Dave Williams, Datacolor, Chris Crisman, Danny Ghitis and resources for collaboration.

  • In Haunted Forests and an Upside Down World, Joe McNally uses the Nikon Z 7's generous resolution to shoot square compositions. "I have always loved the shape and formalism of square format portraiture and this camera opens that door for me in admirable fashion," he writes.
  • Louis Foubare shares his images from Hunts Mesa Area Navajoland in Monument Valley Navajo Tribal Park, south of the state line between Utah and Arizona.
  • Dave Williams isn't traveling this Tuesday so he checked in with his "rogue band of photographers" to see what they're up to in A Note From 'Quaranteam' Epic. That includes Peter Treadway, Cathy Baitson Weatherston, Fernando Santos, Roberto Pisconti, Stephanie Richer, Scott Kelby and Sian Elizabeth. At the end of the piece, Williams offers his own "terrible little eBook" of ideas for "photography in isolation."
  • Datacolor has published its free Spyder eBook: Color Management Can Be Easy, an extensive color management reference guide for photographers and videographers. In six chapters, the guide provides practical information to help better understand color management, from the basics to the advanced.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Chris Crisman about his Virtual Shoot project. He says, "We wanted the video to serve as an example for anyone who will need to consider new, more efficient ways to conduct business. Our way of helping people see things not as they are but as they can be -- and for us, more thought-provoking, the better."
  • In Tools for Staying Creative, Even When You're Stressed, Ellyn Kail continues her interview with Danny Ghitis, asking him "to share some tools for coping during this difficult period."
  • Adobe has a published a list of resources for Being Productive and Collaborative in the Face of Covid-19.

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