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. This time we look at Garrett Maclean, Neewer Vision 4 strobes, Darktable for Windows, Imatag, Davis' best and Harald Johnson.

  • Detroit photographer Garrett Maclean documents "colorful and theatrical forms of protest" in One Nation, Under Protest. "I created this series with the goal that it might encourage more people to become politically active by showing some of their fellow citizens who have already decided to do just that," Maclean says.
  • In My New Flash System, Kirk Tuck shows off his three new Neewer Vision 4 lithium battery-powered electronic flash units, which are running about $199 each. "In every regard the units have worked flawlessly. I am happy to have them," he writes.
  • Darktable for Windows has been released as an "official pre-alpha development snapshot for 64 bit Windows." You can thank Peter Budai, who is handling the code maintenance.
  • Imatag calls itself "the first professional all-in-one tool to publish and protect your images." There are three pricing tiers, starting with free so you can try it out.
  • Harold Davis has published My Best of 2017, a year which took him to Budapest, the Eastern Sierras, France, Maine, Majorca, Malta, New York City, Romania and Vietnam. Many of the images include a link to a blog post describing his technical approach, too.
  • Harald Johnson, who wrote the book on digital printing, celebrated both The Winter Solstice & My Dad in this charming post.

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