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 Wildlife Photographer of the Year contenders, Photofairs NY, farm auctions, Nathan Wirth, the Nikon D6 and six lighting setups.

  • Alan Taylor shares the "highly commended" images from the Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest whose winners will be announced in October.
  • The Guardian presents The Best of Photofairs NY that includes "images of alternate realities, Kenyan camouflage and a cut-up Andy Warhol."
  • Suzanne Sease features the Farm Auction project of Jennifer MacNeill. "Through my images I seek to piece together clues showing how the farm owners lived, the process and people that attend these auctions and visually preserve a vanishing history," MacNeill says.
  • In How Nathan Wirth Makes His Beautiful Photographs With Nearsightedness, Chris Gampat interviews the photographer about his black and white images. "Most of the time, I use the infrared-converted camera to photograph trees (lone trees, groups of trees gathered on hills or forests) and I use the other camera for seascapes," Wirth says.
  • Thom Hogan has published his Nikon D6 Camera Review. He calls it, simply, the best dSLR made.
  • Zach Sutton suggests Six Lighting Setups to try on your next shoot. The images are accompanied by 3D illustrations showing the setup from ground level and above the set.

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