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 bugs, Ming Thein, time itself, printed colors, a dSLR for a webcam, the Rogeti TS-E Frame, remote management and a Tinybeans deal.

  • Sarah Gilbert presents a few Extraordinary Portraits of Ordinary Bugs captured by Daniel Kariko using a microscope. They're from his new book Aliens Among Us, which includes 60 images mostly found in his subdivision in Greenville, N.C.
  • Ming Thein continues his monochromatic series A Magic Hour with Part II.
  • In Days, Hours, Minutes, Seconds: Art and Our Sense of Time, Alexandria Sivak features photos by Andre Kertész, Chris McCaw, Man Ray and Milton Rogovin.
  • In Do the 'Numbers' Matter?, Mark Segal has provided a PDF download of his tests of the accuracy of printed samples to the values of colors in an image file. "The reason for this concern is that after adjusting colors to our taste in a color-managed workflow, we want printed results to faithfully portray what we thought we sent to the printer," he writes.
  • In Using a dSLR as a Webcam, Jesse Gardner resorts to a Sony A6000 when his Canon 5D Mark II and new M50 can't be configured to his liking.
  • Nando Harmsen gives the Rogeti TS-E Frame a workout. The tilt-shift and panorama adapter is a custom-made tripod collar for some Canon TS-E lenses that addresses the parallax problem in panoramas.
  • Front CEO Mathilde Collin lists 25 Things We've Implemented at Front to Keep a Great Culture While Being Remote. The other half of the working at home problem is how the company manages the situation and Collin has some good ideas.
  • The family memory sharing site Tinybeans is offering is Family Premium monthly plan for $4 a month forever, a 50 percent savings, when you use the code BUNNY20 through April 12.

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