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 Cuba shot in black-and-white, adding copyright information to images in Lightroom, the Nitrate Picture Show and Telsa's home batteries.

  • Nick Devlin took a Leica Monochrom (the original model, which today is going for under $7K at B&H) to shoot Cuba No Color. He'll exhibit prints in Toronto Sept. 17 but meanwhile, you can look over the images on his Web site.
  • There's a right way (metadata) and an overlay way to mark your images with your copyright information. Julieanne Kost's Quick Tip shows you the right way to add Copyright and Contact Information in Lightroom:
  • The Nitrate Picture Show opens at the George Eastman House in Rochester, N.Y. tonight with a rare screening of a vintage, 35mm print of Casablanca at 8 p.m. in the Dryden Theater. It will be followed at 10:30 p.m. by Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much.
  • Last but most intriguing is Tesla's move into the home battery business. Solar systems today are like water fountains. Add a battery to the system and you've invented the water bottle. Storage for that half day when you aren't facing the sun.

More to come...
