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 Ansel Adams, Mitch Dobrowner, Pierre-Louis Ferrer, Robbie Quinn, renting vs. buying, David Osborn and an Exif metadata primer.

  • David H. Arrington's collection of Ansel Adams photographs will be offered for sale Feb. 17 in Sotheby‚Äôs New York. The Guardian has a preview.
  • Grace Ebert highlightss the Rural Storms and Twisters captured by Mitch Dobrowner in black and white.
  • In Latvia in Infrared, French photographer Pierre-Louis Ferrer discusses his infrared and ultraviolet photography. "As a former engineer in optics and sensors, I have a solid technical background that allows me to develop cameras and sensors to push back ever further the limits of the perceptible," he writes.
  • Dan Havlik interviews Robbie Quinn about his Boldly Beautiful 'Street Unicorns' Portraits. "Now these 'bold expressionists of style' will be filling the pages of a new photography book from Quinn to be published in April by Abrams," he writes.
  • Kirk Tuck does the math to explain his aversion to Renting Cameras and Lenses.
  • In Behind the Photograph: The Making of the Tower Bridge, David Osborn steps through his edit turning "a normal photograph into an artistic and creative photograph." Part one, that is.
  • Paul Bischoff provides a primer on Exif Metadata Privacy. It includes a walkthrough of four examples of how a publicly available image can reveal your profile, including date of birth, address, spouse names and more.

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