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 Andrew Moore, color grading, the Pixel 4, Plantsnap, Photofocus and galleries.

  • In Blue Alabama, the Guardian presents a selection of intriguing images of the state by Andrew Moore. You can see more of them here.
  • JasenkaG explains the difference between color correcting and color grading in How to Color Grade Your Photos Like a Pro.
  • Hans Hartman asks What Can We Learn From the Google Pixel 4? To find out, he talks to Alexander Schiffhauer, who leads Google's computational photography team and was previously Google CEO Sundar Pichai's technology advisor.
  • Plantsnap is a free app for Android or iOS that can identify plants, flowers, cacti, succulents and mushrooms in seconds after you snap a photo of your specimen. Thomas Smith it works surprisingly well.
  • Photofocus is celebrating 21 years with "a year-long party where you get the presents." Each month it's giving away prizes donated by its partners. Enter to win anything up to a $3,000 camera outfit. There are even a few free items for everyone who enters.
  • In How Do Galleries Find New Artists? Scott Indrisek confirms it's who you know (but the "who" may surprise you).

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