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 roses, nomads, India, a portrait, hobbies, shutter speeds, landscapes, backup problems, a print sale and a legal ruling.

  • Roses for Mother is Dominik Tarabanski's still life project influenced by his mother's positive outlook. "We are divided by 6000 miles. What connects us is our shared optimism and the postcards I send her while I travel," he tells Stephanie Wade.
  • In The Final Days of Georgian Nomads, Misho Antadze interviews Natela Grigalashvili, the first female photojournalist in post-soviet Georgia. "It's very sad to see villages emptying out," she says. "Almost all of the families now also have a home in a city."
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Anja Das about a spread for Forbes India about life during the pandemic.
  • Kirk Tuck revisits A Portrait Done in the Early Evening with a Hasselblad and 80mm lens. "I don't have a densitometer but I'd guess that this image has about 65 percent of the range I would currently expect to get from a digital file from one of my front line cameras," he writes.
  • In Hobbies and the Backyard Project, Kevin Raber discusses the importance of having a hobby (that isn't photography).
  • Zach Sutton continues his series on Photography Fundamentals in How Shutter Speed Changes Your Photos.
  • Scott Kelby excerpts four Landscape Recipes from his new book.
  • In Time Machine 17: Using Utilities to Solve Problems, Howard Oakley explains how to use his free utilities to solve backup issues on Catalina.
  • The July Magnum Square Print Sale: Solidarity offers over 100 images by international visual artists. Magnum photographers and Vogue will both be donating 50 percent of the proceeds from the sale of the $100 6x6 prints to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People.
  • A New York federal court has ruled RageOn Inc. infringed on Deborah Feingold's photographs of Madonna and Keanu Reeves through T-shirts offered for sale on its Web site.

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