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 Cindy Loughridge, iPhone panoramas in Yosemite, three cranes in Paris and double Raw conversions.

  • Cindy Loughridge presents 21 images in Destination Stories: San Francisco, a project in partnership with Luxury Collection Hotels and Leica. Loghbridge sees some of our favorite spots with a different perspective we much admire.
  • Lloyd Chambers applauds "the incredible ease of use and fabulous display" when shooting Panoramas with the iPhone in Yosemite. He's particularly impressed with how it handles moving subjects as the camera moves across the scene. Observe the shutter speeds he reports to see how it's done.
  • We had to chuckle over Three Cranes in Paris by Harold Davis. At first glance it looks like a charming postcard from long ago -- except the cranes are construction cranes and the Paris skyline is from May.
  • In Get More Detail With Double Raw Conversion, John Paul Caponigro shows how to process one copy of a Raw file for highlights and another for shadows before blending the best of both for what he calls a "double Raw conversion." Because you do this with a single image, you don't have to worry about subject movement as you do in a bracketed HDR exposure series. But you can't exceed the dynamic range of your camera, either, as he points out.

We've also updated our Calendar today and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
