5 September 2017

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 Burning Man, Afghan refugees, tomato portraits, Lightroom custom default, Moose Peterson's new book, Hogan's M5 repair and a DxO deal with Blurb.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 Photos From Burning Man 2017 by Reuters photographers Jim Urquhart and Jim Bourg in Nevada‚Äôs Black Rock Desert.
  • James Estrin highlights the Sacramento Bee's coverage of the Afghan community refugees who worked for American forces. Staff photographer Renèe Byer found "many Afghans whose lives were endangered by working with the U.S. military had been relocated to the Sacramento area where they faced 'violence and poverty, as they struggled in the sub-standard housing where resettlement agencies had placed them.'"
  • Jim Kasson shoots some Tomato Portraits using a a single Paul Buff Einstein aimed at a single 3x6-foot diffusing panel. (Tomatoes are nice at breakfast, too, sauteed in olive oil with what the best chefs call "a little" salt.)
  • Julieanne Kost walks you through Setting Custom Develop Defaults in Lightroom CC.
  • Moose Peterson's Takeoff! is the Alpha to Zulu of aviation photography in 240 pages:
  • When the eyepiece dropped off his Canon M5 on safari, Thom Hogan was able to duct-tape it back on. Canon took one look at it, though, and sent him a new one for $292.
  • Get a Blurb coupon worth up to $100 for every DxO software purchase over $150 and a $50 credit for anything under $150.

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