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 Wildlife Photographer of the Year, Shayan Asgharnia, Ed Justice Jr., a copyright infringement fight, the Godox SL150W II, creating a cinemagraph, the Bob Ross Experience and the American Journalism Project.

  • The Guardian presents images from the 56th Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest sponsored by the Natural History Museum in London. Voting for the The People's Choice Award is open until 2 p.m., Feb. 2, 2021.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Shayan Asgharnia about her assignment for Texas Monthly to photograph actor Danny Trejo.
  • In Cars, Cameras & Curiosity, Ed Justice Jr. talks about his career photographing auto racing. "I feel it's my mission to capture history and events that the average person may not see or experience," he says. "Take them behind the scenes."
  • In My Copyright, Dave Williams defends his rights when his photo was used without permission and the travel company that did it tries to make light of it. Uh, no.
  • Kirk Tuck bought a Godox SL150W II, a chip-on-board LED that lets you use the same light modifiers you use for monoblocs. And then he bought another one.
  • Julieanne Kost shows you How to Create a Cinemagraph in Photoshop in this 2:19 clip:
  • Sarah Bahr covered the opening of the Bob Ross Experience only to end up Embracing My Inner Bob Ross with a paint brush that yielded one of those "happy little trees."
  • It's Giving Tuesday when the focus is on philanthropy, especially small size philanthropy. We're reporting a few photographic initiatives elsewhere on the site today but we wanted to make note of The American Journalism Project here. It's dedicated to local news organizations, which have been decimated over the last 20 years. "By providing transformative investments and close support to nonprofit, nonpartisan news organizations, we are building a new public service media that is governed by, sustained by and looks like the public it serves," the organization says.

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