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 Vadim Sherbakov, Sarah Ascough, The Female Gaze, Michael Yamashita, iteration, a really good sample and Lightroom Mobile.

  • In Majestic Topographic Photos, Grace Ebert presents Vadim Sherbakov's images "of the serene, calming atmospheres of natural environments." Sherbakov uses a combination of drones and cameras with wide lenses to get the shot.
  • The Upbeat Side of Life features Sarah Ascough's images of daily life along the coasts of Great Britain.
  • In The Female Gaze, the Guardian showcases images from A World History of Women Photographers edited by Luce Lebart and Marie Robert and is making its English language debut July 14 in a translation by Ruth Taylor and Bethany Wright. It includes the work of 300 women from the 19th century to the present.
  • Michael Yamashita Interview is the fourth part of Rob Haggart's exploration of NFTs. "You've got to put your best stuff forward which you can afford to do since remember, you're not giving up your copyright," Yamashita advises.
  • In Fewer Cameras, More Options, Thom Hogan explores a trend he describes as "getting slower cycles of iteration of the products we already use, coupled with fitful jabs at crevices in between existing product categories." And not just with cameras.
  • Lloyd Chambers found two copies of the Sony FE 24-70mm F/2.8 GM II at his door for review. Which proved immediately that "getting a really good sample is a major effort likely to defy most of us, including me. There is just a darned lot of variation."
  • Lightroom Mobile Is Perfect for Instagram Stories, Dave Williams argues. He used it to process images of a cycling adventure in France, proving his point.

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