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 Rachidi Bissiriou, Dawn Kisk, bird photographers, a Lightroom edit, how many pixels you need, technical camera movements and side hustling.

  • Freedom and Flares presents monochrome portraits of West Africans by Rachidi Bissiriou. They are on exhibit at the David Hill Gallery in London until July 29.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Dawn Kisk about shooting Glen Canyon with the Crown Graphic that once belonged to Tad Nichols, who had photographed the site in the 1950s before it was dammed. "I didn't go back and recreate his work," Kisk says. "I went back to explore and expose what I found and let creativity guide me."
  • Grace Ebert showcases submissions from the Bird Photographer of the Year Contest. "The seventh-annual competition garnered more than 20,000 entries from 115 countries that capture a wildly diverse array of behaviors and habitats," she writes. Winners will be announced in September.
  • Jason Row explains How I Edited This Shot in Adobe Lightroom. The image lacked drama, he writes, but he knows just what to do about it:
  • 4K Is the Current Sweet Spot, Thom Hogan writes. For stills, he insists, although you may want a camera that offers more resolution because it comes with other features you need.
  • Dave Chew continues his series on technical cameras with Using Camera Movements in the Field. "A primary benefit of using a technical camera is to apply movements and utilize the larger image circle associated with most of the dedicated lenses from Rodenstock and Schneider," he writes.
  • Dave Williams discusses Side Hustling, a topic he'll be presenting at he Making Money with Your Photography conference that starts today. He lists three possibilities: social media influencer, microstock and studio sessions.

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