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 photo ping-pong, DeCarava and Hughes, Girls in the Windows, Understanding Color, Seeing Through Photographs, Kasson's gratitude and a Nikkor production milestone.

  • Photo Ping-Pong: Alejandro Arretureta vs. Robert Rieger pairs the two Berlin-based photographers "in a round of visual volleys that looked at the city through a lens of light and adventure."
  • In Illuminating Black Joy, Black Love and Resistance in Harlem, Fayemi Shakur tells the story of the photographer Roy DeCarava and the poet Langston Hughes.
  • Ormond Gigli remembers how his 1960 shot Girls in the Windows came about.
  • Ming Thein presents the first part of Understanding Color from a workflow perspective. In this installment he discusses the improving accuracy of film and digital captures and the importance of calibration.
  • Seeing Through Photographs is a free online course from the Modern Museum of Art that "aims to address the gap between seeing and truly understanding photographs by introducing a diversity of ideas, approaches and technologies that inform their making."
  • Jim Kasson lists a few things I'm Thankful For....
  • Sometime in October, Nikon hit the 110 million mark in Nikkor lens production. That includes dSLR and mirrorless lenses going back to 1959.
