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 a lighting tutorial, Photogrammar, Palacios' Salar de Uyuni and the Project Apollo Archive on Flickr.

  • The German company Dugly Habits produced a lighting tutorial for the 30th anniversary of the Dedolight International Competition. The entertaining video shows you how to create three different settings using the same scene in a single room using the SPS5 Dedolight kit and a few tricks:
  • Photogrammar is Yale's Web-based platform "for organizing, searching and visualizing the 170,000 photographs from 1935 to 1945 created by the United States Farm Security Administration and Office of War Information." Interesting search options include an interactive map of the U.S. and by photographer.
  • In The History Behind Salar de Uyuni, Ignacio Palacios describes creating the composite image that won first prize in the LUX awards in Spain last year.
  • Kipp Teague has brought his Project Apollo Archive of 8,400 high-resolution photographs taken by Apollo astronauts during trips to the moon to Flickr. That includes every photo taken on the lunar surface by astronauts with their chest-mounted Hasselblad cameras, Teague said, along with shots from Earth and lunar orbit and the journey between them.

More to come...
