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 Tim Floyd, Bob Gruen, Ballet Memphis, a lighting approach, M1 SSD speed and Tiffen's Annual Warehouse Sale.

  • Tim Floyd gets close up when he's Photographing With the Soul. It all started when he took a close-up on his horse's jaw. "I had been photographing horses for 30 years, but unlike most of my pictures this struck me as an abstract image of strength and I wanted to make more of such images," he says.
  • In Cameras, Chaos and Cognac, Dave Davies interviews Bob Gruen who photographed the rock stars of the '60s, '70s and '80s. "I carried a little flask of cognac in my camera case. It was part of my equipment. That's the way it was in the '70s," Gruen says.
  • Ballet Memphis teamed up with LensRentals to produce A Nutcracker Performance for Everyone to See. "We were happy to help provide gear for the production and decided to film a Behind the Scenes video of the filming and production," the LensRentals staff notes.
  • Kirk Tuck recalls learning how to create Hard Light Within Soft Light from a cinematographer years ago. And how to control the fall-off.
  • Howard Oakley wonders How Fast Is the SSD Inside an M1 Mac? Two apps give confusing answers so he rolls his own.
  • Tiffen is hosting an online version of its Annual Warehouse Sale of Tiffen Filters, Steadicam, Lowel Lighting, Davis & Sanford Tripods and Domke camera bags. Live now, all discounts are while supplies last with sales ending at 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, Dec. 14.

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