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 insect macro techniques, abstractions, Nikon's strobes, Adobe looks for rising stars in broad daylight and last night on The Photo Show.

  • Robin Wong's Insect Macro Photography Techniques continues with Part II and more dramatic shots of that other-worldly micro universe.
  • In Abstractions, Harold Davis suggests that, as photographers, pattern recognition is one of our strengths. With two examples.
  • In Where Is Nikon Flash These Days? Thom Hogan sums up the state of the strobe for both the radio-controlled Unified Flash Control camp and the older optically-controlled camp. He bemoans the state of remote flash control "but you'd be surprised how often that moving the light stand is the actual adjustment made. "
  • Adobe has launched its Rising Stars program to highlight the work, stories and blossoming careers of 10 up-and-coming photographers, ages 14 to 36, from four continents.
  • If you didn't catch our plug for Mike Pach's The Photo Show last night, here's the mystery guest you missed.

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