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 solar system, that Lens retrospective, Fernando Maselli, Eva and Franco Mattes, Raw Develop vs. Accent AI, a Miops promo and a Topaz Labs discount.

  • Alan Taylor presents 23 photos of The Small Bodies of the Solar System. Asteroids, comets and meteorites, oh my! There's no place like home.
  • 20 Photographers From a Decade of Lens is the second part of the N.Y. Times Lens column retrospective.
  • Rosie Flanagan showcases the Infinite Mountainscapes of Madrid-based photographer Fernando Maselli. "To create his works," she writes, "he photographs mountainous areas from different angles over a period of days; something only possible because of his training as a climber. Later, in the studio, he combines these images, creating a new landscape that through repetition attempts to achieve what he calls the 'artificial infinite effect ... [and] the concept of the sublime as it was defined by Burke.'"
  • Hannah Abel-Hirsch asks, Is It Possible to Be Authentic in Front of the Lens? A project by Eva and Franco Mattes called Riccardo Uncut attempts to answer with an hour and half slide show of Riccardo's 3,000 stills stored on his phone over the years. "Photography, by its very nature, insights a certain level of performativity and this is heightened when the photograph is destined for a digital audience," she writes.
  • In Raw Develop vs. Accent AI 2.0 in Luminar 3.1.0, Kevin Ames compares the two tools using both under-exposed and well-exposed images. "Each tool has its purpose," he concludes.
  • You can win a free online Udemy Photography Course when you buy Miops before June 12 and share your comment about your new gadget by mentioning @miopstrigger on Facebook.
  • The Topaz Labs bundle discount includes DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, Gigapixel AI and JPEG to Raw AI for $199 for a limited time. If you have Gigapixel and Sharpen, but not JPEG to Raw or DeNoise, you pay only for two of these products and still get the discount automatically applied in your cart.

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