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 Puerto Rico, Eolo Perfido, the Mobile Photo Connect conference, the Broccoli Tree, sharing images in real time, an interesting ExifTool update, Lighting 103 and new Copyright Office circulars.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 More Photos of the Crisis in Puerto Rico. Crisis indeed. Outside San Juan, there has been "little to no help" for nine days now, the Associated Press reports.
  • Eolo Perfido is The Walking Photographer. "A good street photograph has the ability to prompt you into looking at reality in an unexpected way," he points out. Expect to be surprised.
  • In Innovative Solution Providers Tackle the Ever-Growing Headaches of Photo Management and Storage, Hans Hartman beats the drum for the fifth annual Mobile Photo Connect conference next month in San Francisco.
  • In RIP the Broccoli Tree, Jason Kottke mourns the loss of Patrik Svedberg's "beautiful Swedish tree," which the photographer has been documenting on Instagram for years. Vandalized this week, the tree was taken down before it could fall down.
  • In Finally, a Reason to Use the Second Memory Card Slot in the GH5s, Kirk Tuck details his solution for sharing images in real time. But read the comments for alternative approaches. It's one of those things that's harder than it should be.
  • We don't usually point out ExifTool updates between production releases, which merit a full news item, but today's update is particularly noteworthy for its preliminary support for HEIC/HEIF images and support for Google depthmap metadata.
  • David Hobby continues his Lighting 103 series with Becoming More Intuitive With Color. "To understand light and color is first to consciously see and appreciate it, then to be able to tweak it and finally, to be able to create it convincingly from scratch," he writes.
  • In Copyright Office Begins Release of Refreshed and Updated Circulars, Carolyn Write reports the first of 31 updated circulars reformatted for online reading and conforming to the third edition of the Compendium of U.S. Copyright Office Practices has begun rolling out. "Circulars have served as a gateway to copyright law and Office practices since the late 1800s and this is the first design update in more than a decade," she notes.

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