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 Comedy Pet Photography finalists, Chloé Milos Azzopardi, backup systems, a $15K contract, not-football photos, more Internetting, August opportunities for photographers and Vin Scully.

  • The Gallery of 2022 Finalists for the Comedy Pet Photography Awards has been posted. Click on one to start the slide.
  • Devid Gualandris interviews French photographer Chloé Milos Azzopardi about her photographs that communicate Emotional Depth. An encounter with a threatening dog she was able to photograph after sitting away from him convinced her "photography can require a lot of patience, desire, leading us to the unknown and to new encounters."
  • Derrick Story surveyed his readers to find One Half 'Somewhat Satisfied' With Their Backup System, which are mainly Drobos. After burning 12 DVDs yesterday to make three backups of our recent images, we wondered if anyone still uses optical media. It was our first DVD burn since upgrading to Catalina last year and the Finder's Burn Folder method failed to prod our burner to do anything. We resorted to an external Apple USB SuperDrive, wondering what we'd do in the USB-C era (an adapter or, more likely, upgrade to Blu-ray). We did the burns to the external with and remain a fan of Burn.
  • Bryan Sheffield negotiates a contract for an OOH Campaign for International Non-Profit at nearly $15,000. "The photographer was awarded the project and the shoot was a huge success!" he writes.
  • Brad Moore admits he's Not-a-Football-Action-Photographer so when he went to a Tennessee Titans game a couple of years ago, he focused on the fans.
  • In Interneting Round #93, Thom Hogan takes on lenses vs. bodies, sensor sizes and legacy controls.
  • Colossal has published three August 2022 Opportunities for photographers.
  • The Associated Press obituary for Vin Scully tells the story of how a photograph helped him stop smoking. "In the shirt pocket where he kept a pack of cigarettes, Scully stuck a family photo. Whenever he felt like he needed a smoke, he pulled out the photo to remind him why he quit. Eight months later, Scully never smoked again."

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