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 sinkholes in the middle of the week, Kirk Marsh, acceptable video, Lightroom CC Mobile and Kasson on the Z System.

  • At midweek, Alan Taylor can be forgiven for obsessing on Sinkholes: When the Earth Opens Up. It can feel that way. But sinkholes aren't just metaphors. Around here, they are evidence of 100-year-old water mains intent on retirement. But this collection shows them at their scary worst.
  • Circus Clown, Photoshop Guru, and Regular Guy Kirk Marsh compares his Photoshop collages to Norman Rockwell's work. The common element? Photography. He lists four essential elements for any composite.
  • In his piece on Acceptable Video, Kirk Tuck smashes a few falsehoods about video production while listing several things that really do matter. Great sound, frequently overlooked, is one of them.
  • Julieanne Kost goes over the New Features in Lightroom CC Mobile, including Depth Map support (if your iPhone supports it). Short, sweet, amply illustrated with screen shots.
  • Jim Kasson chimes in on the Nikon Z 6 and Z 7, both of which he plans to test as soon as they become available. Meanwhile, he shares a few well-considered thoughts.

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