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 Mike Murrmann's Katrina photos, Embry Rucker's newspaper promo piece, the DxO One and printers.

  • Mother Jones photo editor Mike Murrmann revisits 19 Heartbreaking Photos of Hurricane Katrina's Aftermath. "Without having been there -- actually seeing it for yourself in person -- it's hard to comprehend just how hard Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, particularly the Lower Ninth Ward," he begins. Ten years is not long enough to forget -- or recover.
  • In The Daily Promo: Embry Rucker, Heidi Volpe shows off Rucker's newspaper-like mailing campaign to 2,500 potential clients. Works in the bird cage, too.
  • In Using a DxO One with an iPad Mini, Derrick Story explains he "always wanted to take advantage of that beautiful Retina Display on my mini for capturing photos. Now I can and I can do so in style."
  • Kirk Tuck wants to talk about fine arts printers. He has an interesting problem because, like any pro, he has high standards and, like every enthusiast, he doesn't print frequently. Pigment printers -- like the Pro-1 and Pro-10 he's eyeing and the Epson he does not fondly remember -- clog when you don't print at least every 60 hours (we were recently told), which is why the Pro-1 flushes itself constantly. And those Canons don't print a very dark matte black. Can't beat the new Epson SurColors, frankly.

More to come...
