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 Sam Horine, the Webb's diptychs, working with layers, the Nimble Classroom and a Harry Benson book.

  • In the Valley of the Moon presents Jordan's landscape through the eyes of Sam Horine. The most exciting place for him was "the magical Wadi Rum desert, which basically looks exactly like Mars with its barren red landscape." These, consequently, are color shots.
  • In A Marriage of Lives and Photos, James Estrin interviews Alex and Rebecca Norris Webb about their book Slant Rhymes, which features diptychs in which each of them contributed an image. Rebecca suggests the power of a diptych is "related to the way the most surprising metaphors work in poetry -- the more distance between the two things being compared, the greater the leap of imagination needed to bridge the gap"
  • Julieanne Kost continues her 3, 2, 1, Photoshop! series with 10 Tips for Working With the Layers Panel:
  • In The First of a First, Derrick Story introduces his new project, the Nimble Classroom. Story's curriculum includes Capture One, Luminar and Apple Photos. But at $99 to $129 each, the three-hour classes are filling up fast.
  • You can now pre-order Harry Benson: Persons of Interest, which will be released in November. From the blurb: "With subjects ranging from Queen Elizabeth to Amy Winehouse, from Frank Sinatra to Brad Pitt, from Greta Garbo to Kate Moss, from Winston Churchill to Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump, Benson delights us with his images of the lives of the rich, powerful and famous."

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