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 Paola de Grenet, Austin Mann, Andrew Foord, Google Photos, historical sites contest, Harold Davis and Backblaze stats.

  • Ana, a Woman With Albinism, in Barcelona is Paola de Grenet's best photograph. Dale Berning Sawa interviews the Neopolitan photographer about the shoot. "I had in mind Piero della Francesca, Bellini and Vermeer, painters who would place their subjects in the foreground so they filled the frame," de Grenet tells her.
  • Austin Mann has published his iPhone 12 Pro Camera Review: Glacier National Park. "With the iPhone 12 Pro in hand this week, a lot of my focus has been on Ultra Wide Night mode, LiDAR autofocus and exploring new capabilities in the software," he writes. He suspects the iPhone Pro Max will be "the most significant jump in iPhone camera hardware we've experienced in years," so it's worth waiting for.
  • With A Little Ingenuity and Technology, Andrew Foord was able to create new work everyday. Like photographing someone on an old CRTV.
  • Sarah Perez reports Google Photos Revives Its Prints Subscription Service, Expands Same-Day Print Options. "The new subscription, launching soon, leverages feedback from the early tests to now give users more control over which prints they receive and how they look," she writes. "It also drops the price to $6.99 per month, including shipping and before tax."
  • Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons invite you to Photograph U.S. Historical Sites for Wikipedia and Win! Through the end of the month, you can submit photos of historical sites and upload them with a little documentation under a free license after joining the Commons.
  • Harold Davis will host a $29.95 pre-Halloween webinar on Finding the Mysterious in Photography this Saturday at 11 a.m. PT.
  • Andy Klein delivers Backblaze Hard Drive Stats Q3 2020, always an amusing read.

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