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 wild swimming, camera controls, composition, shooting music festivals, NFTs and Thunderbolt/M1 performance.

  • Wesley Verhoeve interviews Alice Dempsey about her series on the Farleigh Hungerford Swim Club, "an ode to wild swimming as an antidote to the mental and physical strains of the pandemic."
  • Jason Row tours The Seven Important Camera Controls Beginners Need to Master. We'd quibble with White Balance because we'd also encourage you to shoot Raw where it isn't a factor. And we wouldn't duplicate the options represented on the PASM dial. Focus Mode Selector makes sense but then so would Drive mode for Continuous shooting.
  • Peter Eastway begins a series on Mastering the Art of Photographic Composition with the question, "How do you learn to point the camera in the right direction and press the shutter at the right time?"
  • Brad Moore made a list of Gear for Photographing Music Festivals.
  • Rob Haggert has published the second part of his Supporting Photographers With NFTs. "I do not believe NFTs will ever go away and it's something photographers can easily add to their business model right now if they are not relying on it as the primary income source," he writes.
  • In Does It Matter Which Thunderbolt Ports You Use? Howard Oakley tests various port choices to see if any improve write rates to external SSDs. This was, apparently, a problem on the original M1 chip.

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