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 John Simmons, two prints, iPhone depth of field and Photo Culling.

  • John Simmons thinks 'A Photograph Has to Be Like Music' and Thuy Bui talks to him about just how. "I always feel like my subject and I were meant to share that moment together," Simmons says.
  • In Print Crit: Richard Man and Frank Gorga Again, Mike Johnston observes "printmaking can complete the creation process of a photograph." The operative word there is "can" because, as he continues, "It's not sensible to be doctrinaire about this -- you know, 'real photographers make prints' or some such nonsense." But it's undeniable that laying tone and color on paper (one way or another) can be both a creative challenge and quite rewarding.
  • Derrick Story explores Changing Depth of Field in Photos After the Shot using Photos for iOS on his iPhone 12 Pro.
  • Trevor Mogg takes a look at Canon's new Photo Culling app that sharpness, noise, emotions and closed eyes to evaluate your images. "Images that fail to reach a threshold score that you set for each characteristic will be suggested as deletions, with the final decision made, of course, by you," he writes. We strongly prefer using real rather than artificial intelligence for these sorts of judgements. And, like Thom Hogan write yesterday, we don't delete images. Which saves us $3 per month or $15 per year in this case.

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