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 Greek wildfires, the Bronx, #DiversifyTheLens, a modest reward, Photoshop clean-ups, a private moon and connectors for heavy gear.

  • Alan Taylor presents Photos of the Devastating Wildfires Outside Athens, Greece responsible for at least 74 deaths, many just yards away from the protection of the sea. The recovery effort has been called Pompeiian, with bodies found stilled in a last embrace.
  • In Capturing the Beauty of Everyday Life in the Bronx, David Gonzalez visits the International Center of Photography at the Point where students have learned analog photography and documented their community for two decades. "What you see in these pictures is the beauty of everyday life. They address the issues, their fears, dreams, life and humanity," ICP's Lacy Austin tells him.
  • In #DiversifyTheLens: Why Your Brand Should Hire More Female Photographers, Amy Cooper points out, "There is a huge population of highly talented, underutilized female photographers who are ready to put their unique vision to work." And women, she adds, influence over 80 percent of consumer spending even as they complain advertisers do not understand them.
  • Kirk Tuck enjoys A Modest Reward at the End of a Long, Hot Day. From the photo, you might think he's talking about the beer he just poured himself. But we think he means the five shots he took of the beer with his Nikon D700 and a 55mm micro Nikkor.
  • Pei Ketron demonstrates some Quick Clean-Ups in Photoshop and how to move an image from Lightroom to Photoshop and back again. What the Photography Plan is all about, really.
  • Leonid Tishkov With His Private Moon is a photo series about "a man who met the moon and stayed with her for the rest of his life." We suspect he only travels with her during a new moon. Much more compact. And, after all, it's only a phase she goes through.
  • In QD Connectors and Large Lenses, Jim Kasson, who likes Peak Design's anchor system for lighter weight encumbrances, takes a look at Really Right Stuff's solution for heavier ones.

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