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 Joe Johnston's tribute to his pressroom co-workers, Sony A7R II posterization, enlarging images in Photoshop and a compact LED lighting solution.

  • When the San Luis Obispo County Tribune shut down its pressroom, senior photographer Joe Johnston photographed the people who were losing their jobs. His Storehouse project Stop the Presses is, at is says, "a tribute to the Tribune's press crew."
  • Lloyd Chambers shows Sony A7R II: Posterization in "an image that leaves me flabbergasted." At ISO 100, using "nr optical exposure, image degradation should not be an issue. Uh oh."
  • Julieanne Kost answers the question she gets most often: How large can I print my image?. She uses Photoshop to show what resolution an enlargement requires and what percent of the original the enlargement would be.
  • Derrick Story cobbles together a Super Nimble LED Lighting Kit using the $88 Ikon iLED-MS Micro Spot-On camera light.
