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 Eggleston, Tom Hegen, Peter Pobyjpicz, an Italian rainbow, Jeremiah Watt, a rabbit hole, photographing food, five holiday gifts, Johnston's print offer, the Fujifilm X100V and iCloud for Windows.

  • Mee-Lai Stone features images from The Outlands, a series of photographs taken by William Eggleston between 1970 and 1973. The series "established the groundbreaking visual themes and lexicon that the artist would continue to develop for decades to come," she writes. An exhibition at David Zwirner in New York runs until Dec. 17 and a book will be published soon by Zwirner.
  • Grace Ebert showcases German photographer Tom Hegen's aerial photos of Salt Extraction Sites. "What attracted me was the graphic and abstract appearance of these landscapes, which almost has a painterly quality. This is also the core feature that aerial photography has to offer: an unfamiliar few at ordinary things that surround us," Hegen says.
  • Sports and advertising photographer Peter Pobyjpicz took two Leica M10 Monochroms and four lenses to cover the European Championships Munich 2022. "For me, it was very special to photograph this major event with a completely different camera system, in contrast to the latest trends," he says.
  • Harold Davis happened on a Florence Rainbow from Piazzale Michelangelo. "I keep in mind the Ansel Adams dictum that if you don't go out in the rain you'll never witness the clearing storm," he writes. "The same can be said of rainbows."
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Jeremiah Watt about his career photographing Adventure Sport. "There's a difference between taking photos and being a photographer," he says. "Be a photographer."
  • Dave Williams goes Down the Rabbit Hole in Scotland, exploring into Glencoe's Hidden Valley. He shows off a shot with an Instax360, claiming, "360° camera technology is in our future. Our near future."
  • Rob Wood discusses How to Photograph Food Like a Pro. Proving, once again, there's nothing like dessert.
  • Derrick Story offers a Totally Fun Holiday Gift Guide for Photographers with five items costing from $13 to $180 dollars.
  • Mike Johnston's Monochrome Camera Print Offer runs until midnight Friday. Only.
  • Why Has the Fujifilm X100V Grabbed the Attention of Millions? LensRentals blames TikTok. And suggests four alternatives now that the X100V is unavailable.
  • Chance Miller reports on continuing issues with iCloud for Windows, including images from strangers and corrupted videos showing up in their libraries. "These problems appear to be affecting the dedicated iCloud for Windows app itself, not the recently-launched iCloud Photos integration in Windows 11," he writes.

While many Black Friday deals are already live, we'll publish our comprehensive list after Thanksgiving, as usual. Meanwhile more to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
