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 Chernobyl, the New East Photo Prize, Bruce Davidson, creating a Blurb photo book, a still life contract, lighting design, Canon's printer discount and Nikon's Webcam utility.

  • Jason Row made A Journey to Chernobyl. "For me, growing up during the Cold War and now living in Ukraine, visiting Chernobyl has been an obsession," he writes. And he's going back next year.
  • The Guardian presents The New East Photo Prize 2020 Shortlist. It includes 11 photographers from Albania, Georgia, Hungary, Poland, Russia, and Uzbekistan. Winners will be announced Nov. 10.
  • Matthew Reitman showcases Civil Rights Era Images by Bruce Davidson from his new book Survey. "The first single-volume of his social documentary photography, the book is a comprehensive collection of over 50 years of his critically-acclaimed work," he writes.
  • In Creating a Blurb Photo Book, Louis Foubare walks through the process he used to make four books using Blurb's BookWright software.
  • Craig Oppenheimer negotiates a $9,300 contract for Combining Food Still Life Projects. "The estimate was well received and we were told that there were three additional projects for other brands (all owned by the same parent company/client) that they hoped we could bid on," he writes.
  • In Working Your Way Through a Cinematic Photoshoot, Deuce Bradshaw suggests the trick is to "conceptualize your light before you shoot."
  • Canon is discounting Selected Printers up to $100 through Nov. 14.
  • Nikon has released its Webcam Utility Software for both macOS and Windows 10 to enable compatible Nikon mirrorless and dSLR cameras to be used as high quality webcams when connected via USB to a computer.

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