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 Donna Ferrato, Buenos Aires, Briony Horgan, StyleCLIP, webcamming, the Leica 90mm R-Elmarit and behavior adjustment.

  • In Donna Ferrato Presents a Lifetime of Work Honoring the Stories of Women, Miss Rosen interviews the photographer about her new book, Holy. Ferrato, she writes, "is possessed with a candor you rarely find, a willingness to traverse the most delicate, vulnerable parts of life and do so with extraordinary courage and sensitivity."
  • In Behind the Photograph -- Boy in the Doorway, Kevin Raber remembers visiting Buenos Aires with Michael Reichmann, among others. He shot with a Leica M8 and presents the images in both color and black-and-white.
  • Briony Horgan helped design the zoom lenses on the Mars Rover and is busy Examining the Landscape with them now. The zoom range is enough to view a housefly at the far end of a soccer field.
  • John Nack is back at work for Adobe working on Image Transformation via Text, known as StyleCLIP. Here's the no-audio presentation (go full screen and read the text entered to edit the image:
  • Thom Hogan provides a handy list for Using an ILC as a Webcam. That's an interchangeable lens camera (ILC) from Canon, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Sigma or Sony.
  • Kirk Tuck learns a few little lessons about his 90mm R-Elmarit Leica Lens on his Leica SL. One of them is how awkward it feels to be shooting strangers of the street again.
  • In Don't Be 'That Guy,' Scott Kelby suggests, "Maybe what we all need is to just be a little more friendly, a little kind, even if you don't use the same product." A friend had enthused about buying an M1 Mac and someone had immediately shot him down in the comments to the post.

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