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 Tranquility Base, coral reefs, Octavi Serra, Movie + Photo mode and a Tokina 16-28mm.

  • NASA's Image of the Day At Tranquility Base celebrates an unusual achievement. Forty-nine years ago on July 20, 1969, humanity stepped foot on another celestial body and into history. Neil Armstrong took the shot of Buzz Aldrin with a 60mm lens:
  • In Beauty and Bleakness: The Efforts to Conserve Coral Reefs, Ania Barkowiak presents the work of underwater photographer Alexis Rosenfeld and journalist Alexie Valois as they document life among the coral reefs. "The main idea is to discover an incredible biodiversity and show that it is threatened," Rosenfeld said.
  • Stephanie Wade explores The Paradoxical Nature of Octavi Serra's Photography. "Serra builds conceptual installations that both poke fun at current culture and question with much seriousness, the status quo: each image portrays a message about some type of socio-political issue," she writes. More than a few laughs here, too.
  • Robin Wong uses Movie + Photo mode on an Olympus PEN E-PL7 to show you what it's like when he's Seeing the Shot.
  • Kirk Tuck finds a way to survive Austin's "dangerous conditions" (the heat) with a $400 used Tokina 16-28mm.

Yesterday we added an extensive Q&A session with the three photographers highlighted in our Adobe Launches 'One Tool, Three Ways' Series story. And there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
