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 Hannah Starkey, Santiago Albert, South Africa, RawTherapee 5.5, Free Transform in Photoshop, holiday travel tips and monitor settings.

  • In Images That Counter Traditional Depictions of Women, Jordan Teicher takes a look at Hannah Starkey's photographs of women appearing alone doing ordinary activities with "an unmistakable emotional gravity."
  • Spanish photographer Santiago Albert has been Meeting the Real Coffee Makers in Guatemala. And photographing them in black-and-white. "I wanted to show a changing reality that will surely be totally different in a few years," he says.
  • Robin Wong posts part two of Robin Visits South Africa. He used the Olympus M.Zuiko 300mm f4 IS Pro and the 40-150mm f2.8 Pro to take these animal close-ups.
  • The free RawTherapee 5.5 Raw file editor [LMW] has been released with a new Shadows/Highlights tool, a striping filter, dual-demosaic algorithms based on the new contrast threshold mask, new color toning methods and more.
  • Scott Kelby explains How to Bring the Shift-Key Back to Free Transform in Photoshop. And he wisely points out when you make a change to 20-year-old behavior, the smart thing to do is provide a preference setting to enable the prior behavior.
  • Derrick Story offers Five Tips for Family Holiday Travel. "Embracing the moment is good for your art, as well as your relationships," he adds.
  • In Mac Settings That Can Affect Monitor Accuracy, X-Rite explains how to handle newer monitor options like Night Shift, Transparency and Display Contrast.
