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 Victor Dragonetti, editing extensions, autofocus microadjustments and hot shoe misalignment.

  • In Magic and Mystery on São Paulo's Streets, David Gonzalez highlights 14 street shots by Victor Dragonetti, each of which suggests a story. "Art cannot change the world," he tells Gonzalez. "But it can change a person's vision of the world. I believe so much in that individual revolution."
  • In Editing Extensions Without the Mess, Derrick Story explains how he taps into Aurora HDR Pro, DxO OpticsPro for Photos, Tonality, Affinity Retouch and other Photos extensions without disrupting his workflow. You just have to set up a referenced library.
  • In How to Use AF Microadjustment on Your Camera, Joey Miller uses a LensAlign (as we do) and a homebrew method (which also gets the job done) of determining if your autofocus lens is back focusing or front focusing (and what to do about it).
  • In Stop Fighting the Hot Shoe of Your Nikon D750, Jason Vinson finagles the appropriate fit between a strobe and the odd hot shoe but Nick Giardina suggests a classic modification that's even more secure.

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