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 photos of the week, Black Women Photographers, Lardo Weeping, iOS 16 and Raber's Greenland Iceberg.

  • Associated Press photo editor James Okungu curates Photos of the Week that include Taliban fighters celebrating one year since they seized Kabul, the men's final at the European Cycling Championships in Munich and Machine Gun Kelly performing in Cleveland, among others.
  • Grace Ebert features Black Women Photographers, launched by Polly Irungu with 100 members to help more Black women get commissions and greater recognition for their work. Two years after that launch, the group has over 1,200 members in over 50 countries. "It offers a directory geared toward curators, editors and brands looking to hire, in addition to programming, educational opportunities, awards and portfolio reviews," Ebert writes.
  • Kirk Tuck photographed the dress rehearsal of Lardo Weeping, a modern opera, at a theater he'd never been in before. He shot Raw+JPEG but just used the JPEGs shot at various ISO settings.
  • Julie Clover covers Everything New in the iOS 16 Photos and Camera Apps. Nine in Photos and three in Camera, to be precise and relying on center auto focusing. "I'm very happy with the files and have not even bothered to crack open the Raw files," he writes.
  • Kevin Raber continues his Behind the Shot series with a discussion of his Greenland Iceberg image. "Because I am on a ship that is moving, bouncing around and has engine vibration the use of a tripod is out of the question," he writes. "The method I use is to set my camera to manual and choose a shutter speed that will stop the motion and an f-stop that will give me the depth of field I want. Then I set the ISO to auto. I let the auto ISO do the heavy lifting."

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