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 Hong Kong, Raw iPhone aerials, portrait tips, a Strobist experiment and a free Capture One Styles Pack.

  • In Scenes From Hong Kong, 'Pearl of the Orient', Alan Taylor presents 39 images of the "city of nearly 7.5 million residents, all packed into an area smaller than 425 square miles."
  • In Raw iPhone Photography on the Road, Derrick Story processes a DNG captured on his iPhone 6S in ACDSee Pro for iOS. It's an aerial shot, which respond very well to post processing. See our Friday Slide shows for more aerial post processing: Over Nevada (Dec. 16, 2016), Aerials (March 18, 2016) and Above the Clouds (Nov. 20, 2015). And all of those were just JPEGs.
  • Kirk Tuck prefers using a long Focal Length for portraits (189mm in the example) but the jewel in this piece is his suggestion for setting the height of his main light.
  • In Greg's Assignment: Results, Strobist David Hobby revisits the previous Lighting 103 assignment with the results of his own experiment.
  • Phase One is offering a complimentary Cinematic Styles Pack when you buy Capture One Pro before June 30. The Styles Pack includes 18 different Styles designed to enhance curves, saturation, and tonal adjustments.

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