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 Nikon Small World winners, Ocean Photographer of the Year, Ilanna Barkusky, a lens cap, vanity photo books, meaning and Warhol v. Goldsmith.

  • In Photographing the Microscopic, Alan Taylor presents 20 photos by the winners of this year's Nikon Small World photo contest.
  • Grace Ebert features the Ocean Photographer of the Year winners. "More than 5,000 entrants from around the world submitted to this year's competition, with winning images framing the iridescent, billowing membranes of creatures spotted during blackwater dives, the speckled tentacles of baby squid and a school of baitfish swirling into a choreographed pattern," she writes.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Ilanna Barkusky's about her Color Series of overhead shots of athletes on painted tracks and courts. "I was looking to intersect movement and shadows with shapes and lines," she says. "Tracks, as well as tennis and basketball courts, was a perfect fit for the concept I was looking to explore."
  • Jim Kasson's 22nd post on the Hasselblad X2D 100C is about the Hasselblad XCD 38/2.5 Lens Cap. It has a fatal flaw. His solution has a complication which just might make you smile.
  • A Reddit poster wonders about Selling Vanity Print Photo Books in Bars. They've printed a 58-page, 12x12 lay-flat book for $80 at Costco that retails for $100. Too much?
  • In Axes of 'Meaning', Andrew Molitor observes that "quite a bit of contemporary art is trying very hard to mean, but does not actually explain itself."
  • Greenberg and Reznicki provide a Link to SCOTUS Audio of Warhol v. Goldsmith, noting the resolution of Lynn Goldsmith's case with the Warhol Foundation "will have a huge impact in our industry, no matter the outcome. It can be wonderful for photographers or a disaster."

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