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 the International Center of Photography, editing ice and snow, printing greeting cards and banning model types.

  • Holland Cotter celebrates the reopening of the International Center of Photography on the Bowery in Photography's Shifting Identity in an Insta-WorldPhotography's Shifting Identity in an Insta-World with a look at Public, Private, Secret, the current exhibition. "Photography fans hoping that the return of the center will mean a return of its vintage collection may have to wait awhile," he warns. "This institution, so often ahead of the curve, has other, challenging ideas on its mind, and the less it acts like a museum the better."
  • Ignacio Palacios has published a tutorial on How To Edit Ice and Snow In Your Landscape Photos using the Detail Extractor tool of Nik Software combined with the Apply Image tool of Photoshop.
  • Derrick Story shows How to Print Fine Art Greeting Cards with Apple Photos. He recommends Red River Paper, which can be purchased as a 7x10-inch scored card with envelopes. If you roll your own, pay attention to the paper's grain, cutting the sheet so it folds parallel with the grain for best results.
  • Vanessa Friedman suggests we Don't Ban Photos of Skinny Models because, well, a ban is a judgment on bodies too. "Just because a judgment is supposedly coming from a good place does not obviate the fact that it's a personal judgment, handed down from afar by a third party, bringing another set of prejudices and preconceptions to bear," she writes. One size never fits all.
