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 macro photo contest winners, Jamie Johnson, Thea Traff, shooting wide open, Brad Moore and Negative Lab Pro.

  • Sarah Gilbert presents images from the Close Up Photographer of the Year contest. First place went to Galice Hoarau, a French professor of marine molecular ecology, for his night-time image of eel larva.
  • Jamie Johnson spent five years photographing Irish Traveller Children, a nomadic, ethnic minority who have lived on the margins of society for centuries. The Guardian has published a set of her black-and-white images.
  • In Creative Leaps, Amy Parrish interviews Thea Traff, senior photo editor of Time magazine. Traff encourages photographers to find "something that feels unexpected. It could be an awkward gesture, facial expression or an unexpected setting. I think that's crucial to taking a memorable photo now."
  • Kirk Tuck suggests An Interesting Exercise. Take a walk with your lens set wide open.
  • Brad Moore describes Photographing the Atlive Concert Series in Atlanta last year.
  • Negative Lab Pro v2.2 has been released with a new imagine engine that provides improved colors and tones, improved editing tools, LUT-based emulations and more.

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