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 Firenze, London's theaters, pandemic photography, the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge, Adobe Raw shortcuts, counting whales, portraiture setup, inspiring quotes and a copyright survey.

  • Ming Thein captured Florentine Nights handheld with a Nikon 7. "I for one never thought I'd say this, but sometimes, you actually miss the crowds," he writes.
  • Grace Ebert presents Joanna Vestey's Unobstructed Photographs of London Theaters. "Vestey visited 20 venues, including Royal Albert Hall, The Globe and National Theatre, to photograph the breadth of the vacant architecture," she writes.
  • Emily Petersen, Science senior photo editor, collects Six Months of Pandemic Photography at the magazine. "When we look back on this time in history, what we may remember most will be those images of people -- and how sharing their emotions made us feel," she writes.
  • Harold Davis takes A Walk on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge. Pretty long walk, too. "Once on the Bridge, it is a little more than five miles to Point San Quentin on the Marin side. I walked about half way, to the first cantilever," he writes.
  • Julieanne Kost presents A Complete Guide to Shortcuts for Adobe Camera Raw. Thank you, Julieanne. Just what the doctor ordered.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Seth Adams about his whale of a personal project: photographing the Bowhead Census. "As the bowheads migrate from the Chukchi Sea to Beaufort Sea they swim past Point Barrow," he says. "The researchers set up the perch on a pressure ridge overlooking an open lead where they visually count the whales as they swim past during their migration."
  • Kirk Tuck does two Portraits and takes the opportunity to show us his studio setup and share "a few more small ideas." Like: "I've learned that the 'goodbye' of a session is as important as the 'hello'."
  • Dave Williams assembled Thirty Sets of Words. Quotes about photography that is. Thirty-one memorable ones.
  • The Copyright Alliance is conducting a Survey on State Copyright Infringement. "Congress is interested in gathering more information about the extent to which state entities -- like state universities, school districts, museums, hospitals and prisons -- infringe the copyrights of others and has asked the U.S. Copyright Office to study the issue and report back so Congress can determine if a change in the law is warranted." Your feedback matters.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
