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 blisters, floral patterns, composition, studio space and Fujifilm lenses.

  • When Harold Davis suffers a case of Blistered Feet in France his cab driver takes him to Queen’s hospital, where they have a free clinic for credentialed pilgrims. He's obliged to look at photos of the Camino until the pain subsides.
  • The Phoblographer interviews San Francisco-based photographer Stephanie Dolen about Documenting Floral Patterns. "“Seeing patterns in nature encourages me to create patterns of my own," she says.
  • Peter Eastway continues his series on Mastering the Art of Photographic Composition with a fourth installment. This time he discussion horizons. "There's no need to look for a dictionary definition of 'horizon' because no matter what or where it is, the horizon is really just a compositional 'line,'" he writes. Sort of like belting your imaginary waistline.
  • Kirk Tuck lists The Pros and Cons of Owning Studio Space in response to a reader inquiry. "Live without a studio space? No thanks," he writes.
  • Lloyd Chambers has had enough of the loaner Fujifilm GF 35-70mm he wants to buy. "My estimate based on using two dozen or so Fujifilm GF lenses over the past 3-4 years is that at best 1 in 6 samples performs as it ought," he says. A reader with the same lens (picked from three samples) sympathizes.

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