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 Vanja Bucan, Christopher Anderson, Andy Bernstein, the Panasonic GH5, Nikon's Webcam software, the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 S, 43mm lenses, Jeff Schewe and discounted rolling cases.

  • In Concrete Flowers, Cat Lachowskyj presents the life-size street photography of Vanja Bucan. "My work focuses on details and is made over the course of a number of steps," Bucan says. "We need to focus more on slow photography and think about new ways to intervene with the medium."
  • In A Father Tries to Freeze Time, Tim Adams writes about conflict photographer Christopher Anderson's photos of his daughter and son.
  • In Get Out the Vote: Creative Ideas for Photographers, Ellyn Kail talks to Andy Bernstein, the executive director at HeadCount, a non-partisan organization that works with musicians to register voters and promote participation in democracy. "Photographers are the hidden heroes of getting out the vote," he says.
  • Kirk Tuck bought another Panasonic GH5 to do video. It may have been introduced three years ago but it isn't ancient technology. "It's amazing to me how much Panasonic improves their older cameras (for free) over their lifespans," he writes.
  • Derrick Story has been Testing the Nikon Webcam Utility With a Nikon Z 5. The Z 5's high ISO performance made the slow f4.6-6.3 lens feasible. In fact, he found "the picture was quite good."
  • Jim Kasson has begun testing the Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 S for the Z system.
  • Chris Gampat suggests Why the Photography World Needs More 43mm Lenses Because it's in between the nifty 50 and the 35mm standards. Our Friday Slide show was shot with a 43mm-86mm zoom but on the D200, that translates to a 65-125mm equivalent.
  • Kevin Raber has posted part one of the video of Lightroom Edits With Jeff Schewe in which Schewe shared his before and after images and how he achieved his results. On Oct. 7 he'll edit images from readers.
  • Think Tank Photo is offering 15 percent off Select Rolling Cases through Oct. 16. That includes the Airport Security, International and Advantage XT rollers, as well as Production Manager stand cases, and Video Rollers. Use that link for free gear and free shipping.

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