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 AP's top photos, female photography, cat shows, two covers, comments on printing, back button focusing and the World Press Photo Contest.

  • The Associated Press has published its Top 2022 Photos. "Taken together, they can convey the feeling of a world convulsing -- 150 Associated Press images from across 2022, showing the fragments that make up our lives and freezing in time the moments that somehow, these days, seem to pass faster than ever."
  • Mee-Lai Stone features a selection of Mind-Bending Female Photography from the new book Collage: Women of the Prix Pictet Since 2008. The new title, to be published Dec. 6, includes recent work by 64 women on the theme of sustainability that illustrate everything from free-falling office workers to funeral customs in rural China.
  • Suzanne Sease features Jennifer MacNeill's personal project, which happens to be photographing Cat Shows. "While I will probably never have a cat with a fancy pedigree, as I prefer to give stray cats a safe home, I think we need to have people out there who are preserving these rare breeds of felines," she says.
  • Joe McNally tells A Tale of Two Covers he shot recently.
  • There's a wealth of information in the Comments section of Mike Johnston's piece on printing. Suggestions range from buying ink from InkOwl to using services the WhiteWall, which we've raved about. There's also a link to Red River's Cost Analysis of printing on the Epson P900.
  • Dahlia Ambrose covers Back Button Focusing on a Canon but the subject is applicable to other cameras. In short, it's a method of fixing focus with a button other than the Shutter button so it doesn't have to be computed every time you press the Shutter button. Not everyone's style, that.
  • The 2023 World Press Photo Contest is now open for submissions until Jan. 10, 2023. Entering the contest is free and open to all professional photographers working in the field of photojournalism and/or documentary photography.

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