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 ethical photography, at the museum, Matamoros, Lightroom Mobile productivity tips, the mountains, the Getty Challenge book and Davis webinars.

  • The Guardian has published single shot award entries in The Festival of Ethical Photography. Now in its 11th year, the festival celebrates photography dealing with content judged to be ethically significant. Can't get enough ethics these days.
  • Ming Thein presents a set of Museum images (well, taken in museums). We found them diverting. And who couldn't use a little diversion these days, too?
  • In Matamoros: Dreams on Hold, César Rodriguez photographs everyday life in the Mexican migrant camp in Matamoros, a stone's skip across the river from the Brownsville, Texas.
  • Julieanne Kost provides Three Tips to Increase Your Productivity in Lightroom Mobile. They include 1) how to apply the Previous photo's settings, 2) Copy and Paste a subset of settings to apply to multiple images and 3) create Presets.
  • Dave Williams can't wait to Head for the Mountains. Wait. It didn't work out too well in Yosemite. Dave's waiting, it turns out. He just wants "to share some tips that will be useful where and when travel is allowed." Tips and pretty pictures, too. (It is interesting to compare his images to those of Lloyd Chambers.)
  • The Getty Museum Challenge Is Now a Book. The Getty challenged people to turn themselves into art, specifically to emulate masterpieces. To honor the phenomenon, Getty Publications chose "a format they call 'a book.' A touch device made from trees and inks, it's a highly portable 6x5 inches or a bit smaller than an iPad Mini." With 2346 re-creations, it's just $14 and will be available in September:
  • Harold Davis has announced New Saturday Webinars. There are five of them running through October. All require registration for $29.95.

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