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 Lighting 102, Hogan on Nikon, iPhoning New York and extensions for Apple Photos.

  • Over the weekend, Strobist David Hobby released Lighting 102, the follow-up to his well-regarded Lighting 101. Through Sunday, he was posting the series, which begins, appropriately enough, with an Introduction.
  • Thom Hogan asks What Does Nikon Excel At? as he takes his August hiatus. The competencies are covered in the second paragraph and you only have to get to the fourth to get the incompetencies. "Yes, we can niggle and nag at little things, but the D500, D810, and D5 represent some of the finest tools we photographers have ever had," he writes.
  • In New York, Through an iPhone's Lens are Guy Trebay's "proof that an inexhaustible bounty of visual rewards is there to be reaped by a walker in the city."
  • Derrick Story has published Photos for OS X: Extensions for Local Adjustments, a new title covering Color Filters, Filters for Photos, Tonality, Snapheal, and BeFunky. The free welcome movie previews the two-hour course.

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