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 Marion Palfi, R. J. Kern, Drobo, lighting effects and the Leica TL2s.

  • In A Forgotten Photographer Who Documented the Fight for Equality, Stephanie Sy talks to curator Lena Jackson about a new exhibit of Marion Palfi's photography at the Phoenix Art Museum that examines the work of the long overlooked German-American photographer "who exposed the links between racism and poverty in the United States."
  • In R. J. Kern's the 'Unchosen Ones: Portraits of an American Pastoral', Abby Ferguson talks to Kern about how he approaches photography and these unconventional portraits just published in book form.
  • In I'm Concerned About Drobo, Scott Kelby finds the Web site is up but no one is home and everything is "sold out." When he called, "It sent me to voicemail where it said, 'No one is here to take your call. Leave a message.'" He tried to call again and identified himself this time. "It's been four days. No callback. No response whatsoever." So he's shopping for a replacement for his two Drobos.
  • Samio Renelda demonstrates a few tricks to Add Realistic Lighting to a simple image.
  • Kirk Tuck gets his hands on The Mysterious Leica TL2. "The body is carved out of a solid block of aluminum alloy, hand polished for 45 minutes and then loaded with the electronic guts and a 24-megapixel, APS-C sized sensor," he writes. No EVF, just the monitor.

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