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 Alexander Turner, portrait photographers, Hasselblad Masters, Photography as a service and secure connection failures.

  • In Watching the Detectorists, Alexander Turner presents his photo essay on the amateurs armed with metal detectors that scour the English countryside for treasures like ancient gold love tokens.
  • Jasenka Grujin found 7 Great Portrait Photographers to Follow on 500px. "Just like Instagram, 500px can be a great source of inspiration for photographers," she writes.
  • You can vote for your favorite images in the Hasselblad Masters 2021 contest as an official member of the Hasselblad Public Jury. There are 12 categories, including the newest one, Heritage, which commemorates Hasselblad’s 80-year anniversary. The 2021 competition received a record-breaking number of over 63,000 submissions, double the amount of uploaded images compared to 2018.
  • In PaaS: Photography as a Service, Paul Melcher imagines the future. "Need a photo of a butterfly on a red rose for your Instagram feed? No problem," he writes. "Tell your Siri/Google and there you go."
  • Why Won't Safari Open That Web Page? Howard Oakley wants to know. Actually, he knows. And he explains what you can do about it.

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