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 Nataliia Voronkova, Sigma 35mm Contemporary, sports photography tips, Ercu, iPhone prints and Ellis Island workshops.

  • In Civilian Medic Commands Respect on Ukraine War's Front Lines, Inna Varenytsia and Nariman El-Mofty document in words and photos the work Nataliia Voronkova, who provides tactical medical training and equipment for Ukrainian forces fighting pro-Russia separatists -- in her high heels. "The smell of her sweet cherry cigarillos fills the air when she gets out of her van to smoke one with her manicured red nails," they write. "As she brought boxes of scalpels, electrocoagulation devices, emergency catheters and other supplies to a hospital in the city of Kurakhove, the roar of outgoing rockets and incoming shelling did not make her flinch."
  • Kirk Tuck takes his Sigma I-Series 35mm f2.0 Contemporary Lens mounted on his Leica SL for a stroll through downtown Austin. "I really like the camera and lens combination now," he writes. "It's the best combination of all the camera bodies and lenses I currently own."
  • Rob Foldy collects Sports Photography Tips whose goal is "making a different photo than the other photographers."
  • Heidi Volpe showcases the collaboration between photographer Pam Lau and filmmaker Jimmy Vi, who met on a 2016 photowalk, for the Ercu agency. "Jimmy and I decided to pivot Ecru away from creative services and instead focus on mentorship and community building," Lau says.
  • Alan Briot explains how he gets Professional Quality Prints From iPhone 13 Pro Raw Captures. "What I consider 'Professional prints' are prints," he writes, "that, at the same size, stand up in quality to prints made from the other cameras I currently use or have used in the past, either film or digital and in formats ranging from 35mm to medium format or large format 4x5."
  • Joe McNally reveals plans for his Ellis Island Workshops this September. "It is a rare opportunity we have, to roam these halls, working with the Save Ellis Island Foundation, who are wonderful folks, committed to preserving the important history of this revered place," he writes.

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