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 Fares Micue, JiaHao Peng, a Sony backyard test, selections, Matthew Tufts and travel photo tips.

  • Grace Ebert features the self-portraits amid Bright Airborne Balloons of Spain-based photographer Fares Micue. "The amorphous clusters follow the artist's distinct use of color, adding either a stark contrast to her clothing and the backdrop or blending with the existing architectural palette," she writes.
  • Stephanie Wade showcases JiaHao Peng's Graceful Reflections on life. "With a portfolio spanning predominantly portraiture, documentary and landscape photography, he strives to immortalize the beauty of the present moment," she writes.
  • Kevin Raber takes the Sony a1 and the 200-600mm G Lens out to the backyard for a test. His backyard, though, is a Certified Wildlife Sanctuary. "We back up into the woods and we have a ton of different and mature trees in our yard," he writes. "Our bird feeder attracts hundreds of birds." And one squirrel.
  • Julieanne Kost lists 25 Shortcuts and Tips for Creating Better Selections in Photoshop. And they're just her favorites.
  • In Skialper, Matthew Tufts talks to Heidi Volpe about shooting in El Chaltén to document the community culture.
  • Dave Williams offers a few Travel Photo Tips Post Covid. "Make sure the viewer of your images wants to be there in the scene and take the time to get it right rather than rushing from one location to the next and risking having a bunch of photos that aren't usable rather than a handful of great shots," he writes.

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