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 Manzanar, easy infrared, the Nikon D800e, visual consistency, Alex Strohl and Matt Rainey.

  • Returning to Manzanar by Inyoung Kang blends historical images with more by James Tensuan. "During World War II, up to 120,000 American citizens and residents of Japanese ancestry on the West Coast were evicted from their homes and held in remote camps," Kang begins. Mas Okui returns every year to remember and to educate.
  • In Easy Infrared Photography, Derrick Story adds a Hoya R72 filter to his Fujifilm X-20 set to Monochrome + Red mode and ISO 800. He uses a set of Luminar presets called Infrared Mastery in post and "that's all there is to it."
  • With the midweek holiday Kirk Tuck had some free time, so he donated a day's shoot to his favorite non-profit using The Nikon D800e Camera and Two Lenses. You can pick up a D800e for under $1,000 these days.
  • Ming Thein's repost of Achieving Visual Consistency lists a few things to keep in mind when working with more than one camera. "Collectively, all of the items on this list make up what is thought of by the pros as 'workflow' -- from capture to output, whether that output is digital media, print or even film/ negatives," he writes.
  • Season 6 of Adorama's Through the Lens series returns to the U.S. with adventure photographer Alex Strohl in Montana. The series airs every Monday at 10 a.m. ET:
