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 Yale Photography MFA graduates, Jake Michaels, electron ptychography, Lightroom premium portrait presets, iPhone tips and a corner.

  • Dylan Hausthor celebrates The Class of 2021 MFA grads with images by his fellow Yale Photography MFA graduates, which include Jackie Furtado, Alex Nelson, Nabil Harb, Tarah Douglas, Rosemary (Rosy) Warren, Max Gavrich, Mickey Aloisio, Ronghui Chen and Annie Ling.
  • Mee-Lai Stone features images of The Mennonites of Belize by Jake Michaels. The moved south from Mexico into Belize to farm and to live a life away from persecution around 1950.
  • At Cornell they've achieved a record level of visual detail sufficient to See the Highest-Resolution Atomic Image Ever Captured. Using electron ptychography, they shot a beam of electrons of about a billion of them per second at a target.
  • The Creative Cloud blog showcases the Lightroom Premium Portrait Presets created by pro photographers. Examples are illuminated with before-and-after image comparison sliders.
  • Dave Williams lists Eight iPhone Photo Tips but to make this fun, try to guess a few first. Only two are really iPhone tips, the rest are general.
  • In What Is a Corner?, Thom Hogan points out "something very specific that makes most reviews un-comparable." Nobody agrees on what a corner is. Until you're backed into one, anyway. Or you work here (it's our name, after all).

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