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 Hiroji Kubota, Hogan on Nikon, your rights as a photographer and a review of Apple Photos extensions.

  • In Hiroji Kubota, Photographer, photographer Misha Erwitt, the son of Elliott Erwitt, explores Kubota's 19th book, delighted to find black and white images "from civil rights marches and draft card burnings to the Black Panthers and the hippies." A few are included in the slide show.
  • In addition to his piece on Nikon's Non-Announcement today, Thom Hogan warns against using the company's software, which can't be installed on El Capitan at all. In Nikon Publishes Bad Self Report Card, he said, "Nikon should just get out of the software business entirely at this point, as they are unable to do what any other viable software company does. "
  • Your rights (not privileges which can be revoked at will) as a photographer shooting in a public place are explained by the ACLU in Know Your Rights: Photographers.
  • Poster r.harris1 at MacRumors has contributed a Photos Extensions Review of several extensions to Apple Photos, including one from Iridient Developer. "For me," the author concludes, "the biggest negative is that it's 'all JPEG all the time.' Once you save the changes from one extension, you're working in JPEG from then on out. That's disappointing."
