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 famous sites in France's colors, thinking about gear, Photoshop Fix in the field and an interesting photo exhibit in Italy.

  • In Monuments Around the World Light Up for Paris, Alan Taylor showcases 38 buildings and monuments that have been "lit up in France's national colors this weekend, in solidarity with the French people, and in tribute to the victims of Friday‚Äôs attacks."
  • In Pursuit of the Latest Gear, Thom Hogan suggests a better approach than buying the latest and greatest. "First, improve the photographer. Second, improve the support system. Third, improve the glass." Interesting tidbits about processing monochrome images in 32-bit channels, evaluating how much camera is enough, compensation for low-light performance with faster lenses and other things that don't make good click bait.
  • Terry White demonstrates A Perfect Use Case for Photoshop Fix and Mobile Apps, using the Spot Healing tool to edit a camera image before sharing it. And he just got his hands on an iPad Pro to run Photoshop Fix, too.
  • Inspired by Mike Johnston's One Camera, One Lens, One Year project, the OCOLOY show featuring a group Italian photographers opened a bit ahead of schedule (it's not a year yet).

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
