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 Ferdinando Scianna, Sohrab Hura, Free Transform, Polaroid, Luminar 4.1, motion art, Photo L.A. and a deadline extended.

  • "A photograph is not created by a photographer," Ferdinando Scianna once said. "What they do is open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself on the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world." The Guardian presents half a century of his readings.
  • Sohrab Hura was smitten by Kashmir's landscape in 2015 when he visited the ski-resort of Gulmarg from his home in New Delhi. The result is Snow, his ongoing project on the beauty of the place, what it hides and what it reveals.
  • Julieanne Kost continues her series 3, 2, 1, Photoshop! with How to Use Free Transform, a 2:19 clip that shows you how to cancel a transformation or transform multiple layers at once. She covers the basics, too:
  • The PBS NewsHour visits the MIT exhibit on How Polaroid Pioneered the Instant Photography Revolution. Oh, for the days when companies seeded their innovations to creatives just to see what would happen.
  • Kirk Tuck kicks the tires on Luminar 4.1 before he restrains himself from kicking the tires of a Red Rental Scooter left in the middle of the sidewalk (you know, as if nobody and their dog don't use sidewalks).
  • The Great News for Photographers that motion artist Troy Plota explores is expanding support for short form looping videos like plotagraphs and cinemagraphs. With several examples to inspire you.
  • Photo L.A., which brings together "dealers and collectors with a gamut of galleries from around the globe," takes place Jan. 30 through Feb. 2 at the Barker Hanger in Santa Monica, Calif.
  • Carolyn Wright reports the U.S. Copyright Office has The Office extended the deadline for submitting written comments on "the application of the statutory definition of publication to the online context" to 11:59 p.m. ET, March 19.

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