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 the Moroccan Fantasia, selective color in Lightroom, McNally's wedding truck and O'Keeffe's flower paintings.

  • In A Female Fantasia in Morocco, James Estrin showcases 16 of Zara Samiry's photos of the Moroccan Fantasia, "a combination of a rodeo and a carnival," as Samiry put it. "Most of the time the Arab woman is seen as a victim, but in this story she is a warrior, an Amazon taking the lead."
  • Julieanne Kost demonstrates Selective Coloring Effects in Lightroom in just two minutes, covering HSL mode, the targeted adjustment tool and the Adjustment brush:
  • Joe McNally has a new gig, The Wedding Truck, a fully outfitted studio he's going to park near City Hall in New York City on June 4 and 5 "to shoot your official portrait of the best day of your life." The wedding portrait will be free of charge for couples married there June 1 to 5, thanks to Nikon's sponsorship.
  • In Sweet Pea After O'Keeffe, Harold Davis discovers "the extent to which O'Keeffe plays with magnification and scale," which he finds "a very photographic approach to painting" that compliments his painterly approach to photography (and may explain why his work and O'Keeffe's are often confused).

More to come...
