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 Natalia Ershova, Brea Souders, iOS 14, David Hobby, Dave Williams, Image Colorizer, zooming, aperture, famous album covers remixed, LightroomLessons and a pilgrim's tale.

  • Ellyn Kail goes Inside the Homes of Hermits through the photos of Russian photographer Natalia Ershova from her project Journey to the Edge of the Room. "Ershova believes the lifestyle appeals to people, particularly those in urban centers, because it offers a respite from the stress of constant communication and busy schedules," she writes.
  • Brea Souders's Vistas are hand-colored photographs sourced from virtual tours of national parks hosted on Google. "Souders takes these views, prints them and applies watercolors to form resemblances of hand-colored travel postcards of an older time,"Gregory Eddi Jones writes.
  • Filipe Espósito lists Seven Ways iPhone Is Improving as a Camera in iOS 14.
  • Strobist David Hobby is Planting Rice at Sunrise in the latest installment of his Strobist Lighting Cookbook. "Seeing as no one is doing much traveling these days, I thought it'd be fun to pay a visit with a Strobist reader photographing somewhere far away," he writes.
  • In Grounds, Dave Williams explores the relationship between foreground and background. Oh, and the middle-ground. "If we consider all three and a link between them we will end up with a better image," he promises.
  • Dan Havlik takes a look at Image Colorizer, a free online tool to colorize black-and-white images.
  • Julieanne Kost explains Zooming in Lightroom Classic. Brief but essential.
  • In a return to basics, Zach Sutton details How Aperture Changes Photos. Also brief but essential.
  • Jason Kottke is delighted that Nursing Home Residents Recreate Famous Album Covers During Pandemic Lockdown.
  • In a #LightroomLessons moment product manager Ben Warde shows you how to share photos and edits with other Lightroom users directly within the app.
  • Harold Davis will host a free webinar on Saturday titled A Pilgrim's Tale: Walking on the Camino. "I'll share stories from my adventures on the Camino, discuss logistics and talk about the history of these fabled pilgrimage routes," he writes. Registration required.

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