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 ship hulls, fish, blue bottles, Raw editing on phones and a focus stacking problem.

  • The Secret Language of Ships features images of the "mysterious numbers, letters and symbols on a ship's hull" by David Webster Smith. Fortunately, Erin Van Rheenen explains what they mean.
  • Laura Holson goes Fishing for Stories via Instagram and finds "a mature social media phenomenon." She found one fishing charter captain who confided, "Being a captain these days is all about being a good photographer. I know where the light is. I know where they need to stand."
  • Harold Davis went to lunch, saw some Blue Bottles and whipped out his iPhone. Later he played around with the delightful image in Plastic Bullet, Waterlogue, Snapseed, and ImageBlender.
  • Derrick Story discovers Raw Power 1.1 Update for iOS Is a Good One. It works well for JPEGs, too, he says.
  • Jim Kasson solves a tricky problem involving Capture 1 and Fuji GFX 50S Focus Stacking. Lens distortion correction was the culprit.

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