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 the week in pictures, hummingbirds, Liz Cheney, the TTArtisan 50mm and the IntelaGrip.

  • Associated Press photo editor Tomas Stargardter in Mexico City curates the Week in Pictures with images of Hurricane Ian in the Caribbean and on the coast of Florida, the continuing tragedy of the war in Ukraine and drought in Somalia.
  • Grace Ebert highlights Australian photographer Christian Spencer's images of Hummingbirds Backlit by the Sun from his book Poetry in the Sky. Their wings are rainbows, displaying a full spectrum of color from diffraction caused by the feathers.
  • In this episode of Chatting the Pictures, Michael Shaw and Cara Finnegan discuss Rachel Woolf's photo for CNN of Liz Cheney on the Hunt:

  • Kirk Tuck bought the new TTArtisan 50mm f2.0 but wouldn't do it again. "The lens has some geometric distortion and there is no current profile for the lens in Adobe apps," he writes before giving a distortion slider setting that helps without curing the problem. Still, he found one photo he took with it he likes.
  • Dan Havlik interviews Michael Chiusano about inventing the IntelaGrip, a new camera grip for heavier cameras that lets you adjust the angel of the camera on the fly.

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