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 William Coupon, Ingacio Marin, transgender troops, event photography tips, Photoshop for Lightroom users, the Fujifilm X-H1, scrubby sliders and CES 2019.

  • David Walker profiles Spanish photographer Ingacio Marin, who began documenting Venezuela: Hunger Crimes last spring in Caracas.
  • The Faces Behind Transgender Troops' Struggle for Acceptance features Jeff Sheng's portraits of five openly transgender members of the U.S. military. All but one of them told Smithsonian they had full support from their superiors and other members of their units during their transitions.
