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 Photo Basel, LensCulture Critics' Choice awards, the supermoon, Luke Copping, Brad Moore, Raw Power and Glenn Davis.

  • Mee-Lai Stone presents The Best of Photo Basel in 21 images.
  • LensCulture has announced the 40 winners of its Critics' Choice Awards. "These remarkable photographers hail from five continents and utilize quite diverse artistic approaches while presenting a wide range of thought-provoking topics," the company said.
  • The Associated Press showcases images of this month's Supermoon from Frankfurt and New York to Istanbul and Beijing.
  • Suzanne Sease features the personal project of Luke Copping, who shot portraits of re-enactors of The War of 1812 at Fort Niagara, the oldest continuously occupied military site in North America.
  • Brad Moore reflects on The Creative Struggle. "No matter how much we try to make the best possible images we can, not every production is going to result in a new portfolio image," he points out. "But here's the thing. You've gotta keep trying."
  • Ric Ford recommends Raw Power from Gentlemen Coders for "processing Apple's unusual and problematic 'ProRaw' files from iPhone 12 and 13 Pro models -- which are not actually Raw files, can appear corrupted on older versions of macOS and may be difficult to process in other third-party apps." Versions are available for macOS and iOS.
  • Reading Zeffrey Zeldman's blog last night we ended up at Verevolf* by Glenn Davis, the guy who ran Cool Site of the Day when the Web was young. We were publishing on the Web in the 1990s ourselves (when it was not clear it would be the future) so it brought it all back to life. What we learned then is still what we practice today at Photo Corners and it is quite a bit different from the corporate tool the Web has become.

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