"Last week in photography" is a curated round up of photography news, gear & software announcements, reviews and gossip that happened last week.
The round up usually contains at least 5 of the most interesting articles or videos from previous week. It's published every Sunday morning, so you can enjoy it with a nice cup of coffee.
