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 biology contest, Mono Giraud, Horacio Reyes Paez, bad habits and the issue of alignment.

  • The Guardian has published images from the winner and shortlist for the Royal Society of Biology Photography Competition 2020. The theme was "our changing world."
  • Grace Ebert presents the Sculptural Garments Formed With Organic Materials designed and photographed by Mono Giraud of Buenos Aires.
  • Devid Gualandris showcases Dream-Like Images of Uruguay by Vienna-based photographer Horacio Reyes Páez. "My flight was cancelled and I had to stay in the country I was born in for six months," he explains. So he revisited the landscape of his childhood.
  • Jasenka Grujin lists Seven Bad Habits "that can mess up your images, inhibit your creativity or make your post-processing routine rather complicated."
  • Lloyd Chambers wonders, Is It Even Possible to Get a Properly Aligned Sony A7R IV? But he admits the problem isn't limited to Sony. And it isn't just the mount. The sensor can be warped too. But wait. Wasn't film congenitally warped? (Yes.) And do you think the manufacturing processes of the previous century were more precise than the robotics of today? (No.) So when hasn't this been the case?

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