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 Stephen Vanasco, Understanding Exposure, Live Photo conversion, saving and closing image files, autofocus sensors, Understanding Color, the 2019 Zeiss Photography Award and Thanksgiving 2018. And a note.

  • In L.A. Interpreted, Stephen Vanasco recommends everyone see L.A. from a helicopter. His monochromatic images from above focus on the city as "a melting pot of architecture."
  • In Understanding Exposure 101, Harold Davis presents the slides from his Getting Your Camera Off Auto presentation.
  • David Williams explains how to Bring a Photo to Life using Adobe Spark Post. Not just any photo but a Live Photo from an iPhone. The trick is to convert it to a compact MP4 movie.
  • Julieanne Kost continues her 3, 2, 1, Photoshop! series with Five Tips for Saving and Closing Files:
  • Thom Hogan shares some preliminary thoughts on Autofocus Sensors, which he promises to expand upon.
  • Ming Thein has published the second part of his Understanding Color from a workflow perspective. Marketing teams enter the fray this time but are defeated by your imagination.
  • The World Photography Organization is accepting entries to the 2019 Zeiss Photography Award. Deadline is Feb. 8, 2019.
  • In Thanksgiving 2018, Derrick Story is inspired by the rain clearing away the smoke to savor "small victories."

We mentioned Peter Turnley's print offer at The Online Photographer in yesterday's Cyber Monday story and we've since struggled to figure out what exactly about the shot in Italy bugs us. There's an imbalance in the composition we find disturbing. We won't show you here but we pulled it into Photoshop CC to run it through the Camera Raw filter. Very therapeutic. The woman looked much more relaxed leaning against the column than holding it up. We can, consequently recommend trying this remedy for visual disturbances at home.

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