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 response to Charlottesville, saturation, a drone photography backup strategy, vandalized Confederate monuments, backing up your Lightroom catalog, daylight LED panels for $68 and a white rose.

  • In Vigils, Marches, and Memorials After Charlottesville, Alan Taylor presents 22 images from across the U.S. in response "to the hatred and violence on display during a 'Unite the Right' rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12th."
  • In Saturation -- the Essential Key to Color Palettes, John Paul Caponigro explores the "six distinct levels of saturation -- neutral, semi-neutral, reduced saturation, fully saturated, highly saturated, and super-saturated."
  • Terry White admits, I Absolutely Knew Better!. He had three backups of his dSLR images of Iceland and backups of his iPhone 7 Plus images but his drone footage crashed his hard drive. He has a little drone photography advice: "You should have a card for each battery/flight. Why? Because one day you may lose your drone." And he even shows off an inexpensive and clever microSD card carrier for keeping track of all of them.
  • Rian Dundon presents a set of photos of Vandalized Confederate Monuments. "In the last few years, these sites have attracted the wrath of vandals set on disrupting the dominance of public space by problematic historic figures," he writes.
  • Are You Backing Up Your Lightroom Catalog? Scott Kelby asks. The catalog is the database containing your edits and organization, he explains, and it can get corrupted. It has even happened to him. And while Lightroom might be able to repair a corrupted catalog, there's nothing like a backup.
  • Peter Krogh found New High-CRI Lights for Film Scanning. That would be daylight-equivalent panels for $68.
  • Harold Davis has published his image of a single White Rose, "the emblem of a group that resisted the Nazis." He adds, "Perhaps it would be a good time to revive this symbolism."

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