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 Historic Photographer of the Year, Malta, Leica M10 photographers, Lightroom tips, 40mm lenses, painting with light, downloading from iCloud, power washing and free Pixelmator.

  • The Guardian has published winning images of the Historic Photographer of the Year Awards, which treat "the world's most incredible cultural places" with the respect they deserve.
  • London-based photographer Alex Fleming shot The Elegance of Malta, an exclusive photo series for Ignant, "juxtaposing architecture, portraiture and luxury cars in tribute to a bygone era," as Stephanie puts it.
  • These Photographers Achieve Great Results With the Leica M10, claims the Phoblographer. The five who are making do with what they have would be Omar Robles, Katerina Christina, Bronfer, Vincent Tremeau and Hiroshi Tabata.
  • Julieanne Kost's Adobe MAX presentation Increase a Photograph's Impact: Lightroom Classic Advanced Tips and Tricks is now available online (and this link works, too). "This session will be a mixture of critical concepts, practical techniques, as well as inspirational tips that will help photographers of all levels create images with more impact," she writes.
  • Derrick Story tells How I Became a 40mm Lens Guy for his street photography. It's more forgiving than the tight composition of a 50mm lens and not as loose as a 35mm lens. Of course, on his Olympus PEN-F the 40mm of his 35mm film cameras becomes a 20mm focal length.
  • In Painting with Light, Lidia Lukianova reveals the method Setta partners Dina Chang and Tim Saccenti use to enhance portraits with light painting. The tutorial includes working files so you can follow the step-by-step instructions.
  • Kate Wesson shows you How to Download Photos From iCloud to Your iPhone, iPad or Computer. "From different file formats to managing and backing up your photos, there are many technicalities that all iPhone photographers need to understand," she notes. "And it's not easy."
  • In Good Clean Fun, Laura Staugaitis shows off Diana Wood's driveway power washer illustrations in a series of compelling photographs (had to wedge that topic in). Wood's husband gave her a Greenworks power washer and she calculated it would take less time to do the driveway if she "illustrated" it. Freehand. Hard to shoot at a low angle, but you get the idea.
  • Pixelmator Photo: Pro Editor is free for iPad OS at the moment.

More to come! Including our curated list of Black Friday deals on Nov. 29. Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
