In this recurring column, we'll 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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Derrick Story's free Flickr tutorial, Pier 24's new exhibit, a show featuring the current work of former Chicago Sun-Times photographers and David Hobby's LumoPro LP180 review.

  • Derrick Story provides Flickr Essential Training, a free tutorial that clocks in at 3 hours 23 minutes.
  • Pier 24 Photography in San Francisco is exhibiting A Sense of Place through May 2014, which gives you plenty of time to reserve a viewing at this unusual space. "Together, the exhibited works shift in scale from room size installations to small, quiet photographs, transporting the viewer through a variety of locations, memories, and emotive experiences." Artists include: Robert Adams, Doug Aitken, Uta Barth, Edward Burtynsky, Eric William Carroll, John Chiara, Jan De Cock, Moyra Davey, Thomas Demand, Jose Manuel Fors, Lee Friedlander, Paul Graham, Andreas Gursky, Todd Hido, Rinko Kawauchi, Veronika Kellndorfer, Erik Kessels, Lucia Koch, Richard Learoyd, Richard Misrach, Asako Narahasi, Stephen Shore, Cinthya Soto, Wolfgang Tillmans, Jeff Wall and selections from the Sack Photographic Trust.
  • The Chicago Photography Center will present See What You Missed, a photo exhibit of current work by the former Chicago Sun-Times photographers. The show opens July 14 and runs through July 28. Co-curator Charles Osgood, a former photojournalist at the Chicago Tribute, has previewed the show.
  • Strobist David Hobby reviews the $199 LumoPro LP180, calling it "the first flash that I actually prefer over a Nikon SB-800." He notes, however, it isn't for anyone who needs "TTL and/or Nikon's CLS or Canon eTTL capabilities."
