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 Mount Etna, Scott Kobner, Sandro Miller, blue, shooting the Super Bowl, the new Nikon sensor, Flughafen Tegel and Łukasz Żak.

  • In Mount Etna Erupts in Spectacular Fashion, the Guardian presents the lava and the ash from Europe's most active volcano.
  • NPR's Rachel Martin talks to Scott Kobner, chief ER resident at the Los Angeles County USC Medical Center, who has been photographing colleagues and patients on the front lines of Covid-19. The Los Angeles Times recently published an illustrated feature on Kobner.
  • Sandro Miller's best photograph was John Malkovich as Eerie Identical Twins, a tribute to the work of Diane Arbus. "One of the keys to recreating these classic images is to look at the eyeballs," he says. That's how he figured out the lighting setup.
  • Feeling blue? Not if you're looking at Harold Davis's Rhapsody in Blue, a set of calming, color-themed images.
  • Cooper Neill tells what it was like Photographing My First Super Bowl. "No photographer or videographer outside of those working with the teams were allowed on the field the entire season and that was the case for the Super Bow," he writes.
  • Thom Hogan has some thoughts on the New Nikon Sensor. He speculates that "Nikon might actually have created this sensor specifically for industrial use, which would be a new market for them (they currently don't supply such sensors that I know of)."
  • Berlin's Flughafen Tegel is celebrated in a suite of images by Robert Rieger And Felix Brüggemann, who have published them in book form as well. The 1960s-era airport closed for good last November.
  • Astrophotographer Łukasz Żak captured The Milky Way and Other Celestial Bodies Through a Snowy Forest in Poland.

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