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 masks, printing landscapes, camera lineages and photographic populism.

  • When it comes to props, it's hard to beat Hawaiian artist Noah Harders Flora and Fauna Masks. Opening next week at the Honolulu Museum of Art, an exhibit of his masked portraits "are a way for us to step out of the harsh reality we are consumed by every day and simply have a moment to dream and feel inspired by what surrounds us on this earth," he tells Grace Ebert.
  • Dahlia Ambrose presents a detailed primer on making your own Landscape Photography Prints. "There is tremendous joy and satisfaction when you get to see fine art paper prints hanging on the wall," she writes. In case you need any motivation.
  • In Sony A7R v: Taking Bets, Mike Johnston wonders about the half life of camera lines. "I'm simply not enough of a gearhead to know this off the top of my head, but my intuitive impression is that most successful camera 'lineages' tend to last for five to seven iterations," he writes. So, procrastinators, hang on for the Sony A7R VII (or it's successor).
  • Andrew Molitor explains the The Populism of Photography is all because "Photography is easy." But that leads to all sorts of vices.

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