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 Antonis Theodoridis, Sony a7III PDAF striping, glass LCD protectors, AI in Spark and cultural heritage.

  • Ways of Escape is Antonis Theodoridis' series of amusing images of modern day Athens. "In the series, we see spaces that match the narrative of 'escape' suggested by the title -- a hole beneath a reclining sun lounge, a barbed wire fence silhouetted against a mountain -- but we don't see people trying to leave."
  • Jim Kasson spends a while Debunking False Claims About Sony a7III PDAF Striping. Someone has to.
  • Andrew Darlow explains How to Protect Any Camera LCD for About $10. And very thoroughly, too, so you'll feel like you've already done it a few times by the time you try it yourself. Works for smartphones, too.
  • Amy Copperman explains How Spark Uses Artificial Intelligence. Suggesting color palettes, auto alignment, text placement and auto resizing are a few ways. "But there's some real black belt-level AI in Spark Post's Magic Layout feature, which makes creating standout collages and sophisticated graphics faster and easier -- for anyone -- than ever before," she writes.
  • In Cultural Heritage in Armed Conflict Zones With Tom Weiss, Weiss uses the civil war in Syria as a springboard to address the preservation of monuments and cultural heritage during times of humanitarian crisis and armed conflict. One day all we may have is our photos of these treasures.

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