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 Pride around the world, the Beat Generation in color, Doris Day, Photoshop blend modes, a Fracture price increase, X-raying daguerreotypes and Adorama's Inspire Expo.

  • In an email to customers, Fracture CEO Abhi Lokesh announced the company's first price increases since 2014. They range from 8 to 13 percent, depending on the size, but the company regularly offers discounts to previous customers. "These increases will allow us to invest in some huge opportunities, including a larger facility to house our growing team and factory, as well as researching newer resources and technologies to create the best products possible," he wrote.
  • Jennifer Bieman reports Western Study Uses X-Ray Beams to Uncover Lost 19th Century Photos. That's Western University where researchers used micro X-ray scans that take eight hours per image to see through the tarnish of old daguerreotypes.
  • Adorama will host its Inspire Expo from Friday, June 29, to Sunday, July 1, from 10:00 a.m. EST to 5:00 p.m. EST at the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City. The week-long event pays homage to cinematography, photography, music making and social influence, offering specially curated workshops and community platforms that focus on improving technical expertise, important industry discussions and artist-immersed experiences such as photo walks, flying drones, and community art galleries, many of which will be free to attend.

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