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 Ukraine, a calla lily, one camera for a year, managing multiple camera batteries, Kelby on the Mac Studio and handheld video.

  • Jim Powell presents Twenty Photographs of the Week covering "the destruction of Mariupol, refugees head to the Polish border, the funerals of dead soldiers in Kyiv and the desperate flight from Irpin: photographs from the third week of the Russian invasion of Ukraine."
  • In Another Take, Harold Davis composes a color image of a calla lily lit from behind
  • Patrick Medd reflects his experience with The Leica for a Year Project, an exercise devised by Michael Johnston that limits you to one lens and one type of black-and-white for a year.
  • Lloyd Chambers describes his system for Managing Multiple Camera Batteries to equalize wear. In our case, the issue never comes up. We only need one battery for multiple shoots (even after 10 years).
  • Scott Kelby explains Why I'm Not Recommending Apple's New Mac Studio to his photographer friends. "I think it would be a waste of money," he writes. He just bought an M1 Apple MacBook Pro and he doesn't notice any speed increase in the things he uses it for.
  • Jeannette Moses lists Three Ways to Shoot High-Quality Handheld Video.

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