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 Apollo 13, Plague Doctor, automating Photoshop, Fujifilm X Raw Studio and #HonorHeroes.

  • Eric Berger presents An Unprecedented Look at Apollo 13'S Damaged Service Module. The images were processed by Andy Saunders who uses photo stacking to create new images. "Much of the film he worked on was shot in the lunar module, after the oxygen tank exploded," Berger explains. "The crew was exhausted, it was cold and the astronauts found themselves in the gravest of situations. And yet they appeared to be in good spirits."
  • In Plague Doctor, 2011, by Erwin Olaf, Francis Hodgson writes, "For three days in July 2011, Olaf took over the Pieterskirk in the city and turned it into the set for a major photographic shoot. He used amateur models to get faces of 'ordinary people' and a combination of dead and living animals, lots of props from the museum collections, paintings and engravings as guides or inspiration."
  • Julieanne Kost is offering her Free Course on Automating Photoshop for the next 29 hours. Topics include how to create and work with Actions, Droplets, image processor, batch processing, variables and more.
  • Mike Johnston explores Fujifilm X Raw Studio. He notes a few advantages to the strange arrangement which requires you to cable your camera to your computer so "you can use the camera to convert any Raw files you took with that camera." But he isn't sold. And suggests a few other strategies for handling Fujifilm Raw files.
  • In Using Creativity to #HonorHeroes Doing Extraordinary Things, Adobe invites you to "share your own creative expression recognizing heroes in your community using the #HonorHeroes hashtag on Twitter or Instagram."

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