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 Gonçalo Fonseca, animals, publishing, digitizing negatives, stock photography, a Nikon sensitivity test and refurbished Lensbabies.

  • In Por Este Rio Acima, Gonçalo Fonseca explores the course of the Ceira river in Portugal's heartland as it flows through forgotten villages and small cities "that have struggled to maintain their vibrancy in the 21st century."
  • Chris Gampat features Five Beautiful Photographs of Animals.
  • Kirk Tuck reminisces about his experiences with the non-fiction Publishing Industry. "I really had no idea what to expect on the first project but I did know I had a deadline and I have never missed a deadline in my entire career," he writes.
  • In Digitizing Negatives With a Camera: Revisited, Mark Segal updates his approach from the one he previously published on Luminous Landscape. A lot has changed.
  • In How to Sell More Stock Photography: Five Tips, Sarah Casillas updates the state of the industry. "I can't stress enough the urgent need that I'm seeing, across all major industries, for stock imagery that is accurate, contemporary and diverse," she writes. Some things never change.
  • In Nikon D5 and Z7 Sensitivity, Jim Kasson finds, "The green channels have just about the same sensitivity, but the red and blue channels in the Z7 and more sensitive by about a fifth of a stop." Which, he notes, is "of academic interest only."
  • Lensbaby has launched its annual Refurbished Collection Sale with up to $100 off on individual lenses.

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