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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Apple's Raw Compatibility Update, The Birmingham Project, Pablo Inirio and Lando's week with Heisler.

  • Apple has quickly revised its Digital Camera Raw Compatibility Update 4.09 to "restore lens correction to Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 images" and "address a white balance issue with some Nikon images that were modified by third-party applications." The update also adds support for the Olympus PEN E-P5.
  • The N.Y. Times Lens blog Reimagining a Tragedy, 50 Years Later looks at Dawoud Bey's The Birmingham Project, which pairs "a present-day youngster the same age as one of the murdered children [in the 1963 16th Strette Baptist Church bombing] with men and women the ages the boys and girls would be if they were alive today." Reviewer Maurice Berger notes, "Despite the half-century that separates them, the paired subjects speak to intermingled histories and shared destinies: adults who helped forge a path of acceptance and stability for African-Americans; the young beneficiaries of their bravery and largess who may well do the same for future generations."
  • The Literate Lens focuses on master printer Pablo Inirio in Magnum and the Dying Art of Darkroom Printing, who remains busy in the darkroom. The piece includes images of Inirio's test prints with his dodging and burning notes.
  • At Strobist, Sara Lando writes about My Week With Heisler, a three-part series on what it's like to be "embedded as an assistant with arguably the world's best living photographic portraitist."
