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 Paul Cupido, Tom Sandberg, Tuscany, a stranded boat, the lens addiction, gear destruction, the Pixel 7 Pro Zoom and a script to merge keywords.

  • In A Symphony of Images, Sophie Wright present Dutch photographer Paul Cupido's black-and-white images "as a deeply personal, emotive language to explore the infinite possibilities of our natural surroundings."
  • In Enigmas in Plain Sight, Pico Iyer celebrates the vision of Norwegian photographer Tom Sandberg, who studied with Minor White.
  • In Timeless Tuscany, Scott Kelby shares some of his favorite images from a recent trip to Italy. "I had such a great week, such a great experience, I had great meals and lots of laughs, made some new friends and loved every minute of it," he writes.
  • In Stranded Boat Offers So Many Photographic Opportunities, Kevin Raber writes, "Many photographers would pass this opportunity up but it was a great exercise to discover new compositions and images."
  • Thom Hogan discusses The Lens Addiction. "What usually starts the lens buying addiction is one of two things: (1) attempting to duplicate the work of others; or (2) attempting to distinguish your work from others," he writes.
  • Zach Sutton shows How to Quickly Ruin Your Camera and Lens in case you need an excuse (other than Hogan's) to go shopping.
  • A Reddit poster did An Analysis on the Pixel 7 Pro Zoom Processing and includes a link to an album of example images.
  • Matthew Bender wanted a way to Merge Keywords into "a structured hierarchal keyword list for stock photography purposes" for Photo Mechanic. One contributor came up with this AppleScript to do the job.

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