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 the Lunar New Year, using a fisheye lens, the far side of the moon, a power boost, an IR filter, customizing Photoshop's toolbar and FCC oversight.

  • Alan Taylor presents 28 photos to celebrate Chinese Lunar New Year 2019. "In the larger Chinese astrological cycle, this year is also associated with the element of earth, which makes 2019 the Year of the Earth Pig, exemplified by the traits of sociability, kindness and thoughtfulness," he writes hopefully.
  • Robin Wong takes some Fisheye Adventures for a fresh perspective on street shooting. "This will not be a lens that I use often in my own photography, but I acknowledge that in certain situations when the fisheye did work, the results can be unusually charming," he writes.
  • In Far Side of the Moon Photographed by Amateurs, Cees Bassa presents images from the Chinese DSLWP-B/Longjiang-2 satellite.
  • Mark Heaps provides A Power Boost for creatives with "a few of my favorite tips on what creatives can do to give themselves a boost."
  • Yann Philippe introduces Kolari Vision's IR Chrome Infrared Photography Filter. Price varies depending on size.
  • Julieanne Kost explains How to Customize the Toolbar in Photoshop CC with keyboard shortcuts, grouping and hiding.
  • In Pallone & Doyle to Pai: It's Oversight Time, the two congressmen request documents from Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai "related to the FCC's current workload, the work of its bureaus and offices, and the FCC’s interactions with the public through its handling of consumer complaints and Freedom of Information Act requests." Their concern? "Under your leadership, the FCC has failed repeatedly to act in the public interest and placed the interest of corporations over consumers," they write.

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