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 William John Kennedy, Mount Rainier, focus and two opportunities.

  • In 'We Nearly Threw Them Out', Marie Kennedy tells the story of her late husband's forgotten photographs of Andy Warhol and friends from 50 years ago. "For decades, Bill kept the negatives, contact sheets and transparencies from the shoots in a box in a closet," she writes. "We kind of forgot about them. When we left New York for Miami in the '80s, Bill nearly threw the box out. But, luckily, he didn't. Now his photographs -- of two great artists on the threshold of fame -- are getting the attention they deserve."
  • Kevin McNeal shot Mount Rainier National Park in every season and has some advice about shooting there. "The most popular months are July through October, but there is something for photographers here year-round," he writes.
  • Mike Johnston covers two fundamental aspects of the topic in The Very Basics of Focus before his readers pile on. One helpful commenter recommends The Ins and Outs of Focus by Harold M. Merklinger, published in 1992 -- but also available for download as shareware.
  • Colossal lists a couple of September 2022 Opportunities for photographers.

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