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 more 2018 photos, John Houck, Addis Foto Fest, Pulau Lang Tengah, video driver requirements for Adobe apps, landscape edits and the Film Camera Shop.

  • Alan Taylor continues his look at the year in photos with A Look at the Middle Months. In these 40 images we see Mexico elect a new president, World Cup fans cheer and cry, protests rock Nicaragua, a new Ebola outbreak hitting central Africa, lava destroying neighborhoods in Hawaii and more.
  • In John Houck's Iterative Still-Life Photography, Marigold Warner takes a look at Holding Environment, the photographer's new show in New York. "His pieces are made cyclically by photographing and rephotographing objects, paintings and sheets of folded paper, adding and removing elements with each iteration," she writes. "It's a way to get at the way in which memory is an imaginative act," he says.
  • James Estrin takes a look at some startling images exhibited at Addis Foto Fest in his piece In Ethiopia, Visual Storytelling From a Deeper Perspective.
  • Robin Wong spent some time Exploring Pulau Lang Tengah. And the images are a perfect antidote to winter blues, an island paradise in Malaysia. "During the day, I armed myself with the Olympus M.Zuiko 12-100mm f4 IS PRO on the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and captured anything that caught my attention," he writes.
  • Eric Philpott delivers some Important Information on GPU and GPU Driver Requirements for optimizing your system to run the latest releases of Adobe's video tools.
  • Jasenka Grujin lists Five Lightroom Edits That Will Rock Your Outdoor Photography but all five work in any other image editor you might prefer.
  • Derrick Story's The Film Camera Shop is a bargain hunter's dream. And not just for the analog photographers among us. A lot of that glass can be mounted on digital cameras, too. And there are inexpensive universal accessories like filters available.

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