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 Damon Winter, Pothi boxes, Quick Action shortcuts, Kasson's Z 7 landscape tests, David Hobby and Fujifilm discounts.

  • In Losing Hope as Susan Collins Spoke, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times staff photographer Damon Winter chronicles the protest outside the senator's office as she announced her decision and, later, in the streets of the capitol.
  • In The Photo Book as Art Object, James Estrin interviews Dayanita Singh about her Pothi Box, a wooden structure that contains 30 images of paper archives, a film archive and a printing press. "You take the image cards out and put another one in front and you can keep changing the images. I call it an unbound book," she says. She's showing 30 of them at the Callicoon Gallery later this month.
  • In Create Your Own Quick Action Shortcuts for Photo Tasks, Derrick Story adds a few "little scripts" to save photo processing time in macOS Mojave. For those of us who can't go there, though, Keyboard Maestro is a much more powerful and thorough solution. And it runs under macOS Mojave, too.
  • Jim Kasson continues his series on Nikon's new full-frame mirrorless line with Nikon 24-70/4, 24-70/2.8 on Z 7, D850. We won't mention every piece in the series, but in this one he gets out of the lab for landscapes. "These lenses are very close in performance," he concludes, but there are small differences.
  • Strobist David Hobby continues his Strobist Lighting Cookbook with Use a Tight Grid to Create Color. The trick is "that relative blackness you can create with a gridded key is what can help you to amp the color palette in even a small room with light-toned walls."
  • Fujifilm is offering discounts up to $200 on Everything Except Mirrors.

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