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 a monochrome series, Alice Camera, unpopular opinions and Scott Kelby's iPhone book.

  • Harold Davis presents his Monochromatic Visions Portfolio, a set of 12 square-format black-and-white that might inspire you to think in sequences.
  • Chris Gampat suggests Alice Camera Is Showing the Big Boys How to Drive Camera Tech Forward. It marries your smartphone to a grip housing with a Micro Four Thirds lens mount. But the camera has its own sensor and image processor. "This chip uses deep learning to help improve colors, focusing, low light performance and more," he writes.
  • Lisa Michelle Burns lists Six Unpopular Opinions about photography. Topics include camera settings, social media and studying photography.
  • Rocky Nook will take 35 percent off Scott Kelby's new The iPhone Photography Book when you use the code SKiPhone35 at checkout. Kelby describes it his way: "What I did in this book is take all the same principles and techniques I've been teaching to serious dSLR and mirrorless photographers about lighting, about landscapes, about travel and portrait photography and composition and all the stuff that really matters, but everything is done from the perspective of using the iPhone as your only camera (and all the examples and photos in the book are all taken with an iPhone)."

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