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 Deanna Dikeman, stone, Mitch Epstein, immigration, iMazing, Erin Patrice O'Brien, keywords, the iPad Pro, color profiles, Darktable, disinfecting, working remotely and NAB 2020.

  • Leaving and Waving is a collection of 27 years of photographs Deanna Dikeman took "as I waved good-bye and drove away from visiting my parents at their home in Sioux City."
  • The Guardian presents a few images of The Most Extraordinary Stone Buildings on Earth from a new book by William Hall.
  • In Between Transformation and Collapse, David Gualandris suggests "a sense of imminent danger is palpable under the surface of the haunting photographs" in Mitch Epstein's five-year documentary project American Power.
  • Marigold Warner reviews Trump Revolution: Immigration, the first in a series of exhibitions at the Bronx Documentary Center in New York City, which will examine America's political and social transformation since Trump came into power.
  • "With the recent release of version 2.11, iMazing has greatly expanded its photo support," writes the MacStories team in its review of iMazing. "Your photos and videos are all available in high-resolution and can even be viewed full-screen before importing them to your Mac. You can also browse extensive metadata about each image like its file name, size and format, number of views, location, shutter speed, focal length, ISO and more." Reminds us of Image Capture, which we still use.
  • Heidi Volpe talks to Erin Patrice O'Brien about her project Portrait of a Skateboard focusing on the female and non-binary skate community. "It takes a long time to learn how to do an ollie or any other skate trick," O'Brien says. "It also takes a lot of confidence to go to a skatepark and be the only woman or non binary person."
  • Julieanne Kost offers some tips for Working With Keywords in Lightroom Classic even if it's not her favorite thing to do.
  • Is the iPad Pro Ready for Real Photo Editing? Hillary Grigonis wondered. She ditched her MacBook to find out. It's a competent complement, she found, but not a replacement for her laptop.
  • Jim Kasson has been Designing Color Profiles for Strobe Lighting. Deep dive (but refreshing).
  • Darktable 3.0.1 has been released with focus peaking, a new denoise profile mode, resizeable panels and a new color assessment mode.
  • Disinfecting is the new rage. In How to Clean Your Apple Products, Apple advises, "Using a 70 percent isopropyl alcohol wipe or Clorox Disinfecting Wipes, you may gently wipe the hard, nonporous surfaces of your Apple product, such as the display, keyboard or other exterior surfaces."
  • And in the same vein (so to speak), developer David Walsh offers some Tips for Working Remotely and Enjoying It that he's acquired after a decade of working at home. We can vouch for the advice after 22 years of remote labor.
  • Adobe Withdraws From NAB Show 2020 as the coronavirus threat continues.

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