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 a nature photography contest, graphics in Austin, Tibetan twins, a custom Zoom background, buying a used lens and shooting mist and fog.

  • Grace Ebert presents a few images from the Nature TTL Photographer of the Year Competition with links to more.
  • Kirk Tuck takes his Sigma fp and 45mm prime on a walk through Austin discovering a poster campaign at a closed Italian restaurant, to-go cocktails and a graffiti initiative for those "crisis covers" of plywood nailed up to prevent looting.
  • Tibetan Twins and Their Albino Rabbits is Rinchen Ato's best photograph. She's been making annual portraits of these 19-year-old twin girls from Qinghai in China since they were two or three. "This time, they came out wearing these incredible gingham dresses, reminding me of Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. They had matching watches and they'd done their hair. It felt like a real transition: they'd started to become aware of how they were presenting themselves," she writes.
  • Caitlin Shamberg explains How to Use Getty Open Content for Your Custom Zoom Background. Highly recommended if the shoe fits.
  • Roger Cicala, LensAuthority's Connie Candebat and photo tech Joey Miller discuss How to Buy a Used Lens.
  • In The Best Guide to Mist and Fog Photography, Jason Row offers a few tips on shooting these evocative images.

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