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 Marietta Varga, Cheryle St. Onge, Stephen Vanasco, Sigma fp video, Google Photos and Chris Porsz.

  • Devid Gualandris describes Marietta Varga's series The Bright Shadow as A Dream-Like World of Isolation. "The world around me has slowed down and recently I have started perceiving and appreciating details and wonders of everyday life in this extraordinary state," she says.
  • Cheryle St. Onge tells what Photographing the Beauty of My Mother's Decline has meant to her -- and her mother.
  • Los Angeles photojournalist Stephen Vanasco finds The Humanity of a Moment covering the demonstrations in the street. "When you look out into a group shot you see all types of faces," he says.
  • Kirk Tuck explains the importance of yesterday's Firmware Update to the Sigma fp for videographers. There's now two more efficient Raw video options to the original 12-bit 4K DNG format.
  • "In the redesigned Google Photos, we're giving your photos and videos more prominence and bringing search front-and-center with a new three-tab structure," writes product director David Lieb. The main tab remains Photos but Search moves front and center while Library gets quick access to Albums, Favorites and Print options (in some regions). Plus, there's now a Map view in the Search tab. Rolling out next week, Lieb promises.
  • A reader submitted a story about Chris Porsz's project of recreating images of People Captured 30 Years Ago. Scary, as you might imagine. And it's three years old now, so just imagine how frightfully funny it would be to do it again. Annually, say. As a flip book called The Dance of Time.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
