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 photojournalism awards, a paper from Fujifilm, Color Filters and free Nik Collection tutorials.

  • Daniel Berehulak and Scott McIntyre have been named Photojournalist of the Year. Mary F. Calvert of ZUMA Press won Cliff Edom's New America Award for Missing in Action: Homeless Women Veterans while Sergey Ponomarev won the Contemporary Issues Story category for Making the Crossing to Lesbos. Al Bello of Getty Images was named the 2016 Sports Photojournalist of the Year.
  • Strobist David Hobby raves about Fujifilm Crystal Archive Deep Matte Paper. Not available for home use, though. You need a lab, like AdoramaPix.
  • Derrick Story recommends Color Filters, an editing extension for Photos for OX X. "Color Filters is a well-coded, well-designed application," he writes. "The performance is snappy and the effects are terrific."
  • Tim Grey has made his Nik Collection Bundle free. "This bundle includes courses on the basics of using the Nik Collection, Viveza, Silver Efex Pro, and Analog Efex Pro." It really does help to see how to use these sophisticated tools, particularly Viveza.

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