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 Julia Child by Paul Child, the Tusheti Mountains, Matthias Hombauer, ISO choice and Luminar 2018.

  • The Unseen Julia Child was the young one, the wife of diplomat Paul Child, who just happened to love photographing his wife. Remy Tumin talks to Alex Prud'homme, the couple's grandnephew and a co-author of France Is a Feast: The Photographic Journey of Paul and Julia Child.
  • Alan Taylor presents 31 photos of The Shepherds of the Tusheti Mountains on their annual migration to the winter pastures of Georgia's plains. Don't quite your day job.
  • Matthias Hombauer explains how to be a concert photographer on Scott Kelby's site. Hombauer isn't shy about detailing what's important in a camera and lens as you get started. Oh, and never use flash but always shoot Raw.
  • In Magical Thinking and ISO Choice, Jim Kasson lists the four factors that affect noise in an image. He uses a dynamic range/ISO curve to show how the Canon 1D Mark II differs from the Nikon D850.
  • In New Luminar 2018, Macphun (which is changing its name to Skylum) previews the new features it will introduce this year, which it also showed off at PhotoPlus Expo last week.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for health coverage under the American Health Care Act from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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