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 street photographers, Jacob Aue Sobol, Jean-Yves Lemoigne, saving Smart Object settings, the iPhone photo grid, the Leica SL2 firmware update 3.0 and Andrew Molitor.

  • The Guardian presents the winners of the Street Photographers Foundation Awards. Not from your usual streets, apparently, as they feature things like a giant eyeball on the subway and a winged dog at a wedding.
  • In Arrivals and Departures, Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol treks from Moscow to Ulan Bator to Beijing in one month making over 1,000 photographs each day for 28 days straight.
  • In Explosions of Particles Envelop Dancers in Digital Compositions, Grace Ebert features the digitally-manipulated photos of Jean-Yves Lemoigne.
  • Julieanne Kost explains the (easy) trick to Saving Settings From a Smart Object in Photoshop to the Original Raw File in Lightroom Classic.
  • In iPhone Photo Grid, Dave Williams shares "a nuggets of wisdom." It's how to use the Aspect Ratio Grid in the Camera Roll to show the actual orientation of your images rather than square crops.
  • Lloyd Chambers doesn't like the Leica SL2 Firmware Update 3.0 because he can no longer use the Fn button to toggle the information display any more. "Either these geniuses think this is a feature or their software quality control stinks," he writes.
  • In Analog Ignorance, Andrew Molitor bemoans the influencer asked for advice who can't stop from giving it even if they have no idea what the answer to the question is. "There are answers to be found in the archives of, say, or in actual books and so on," he writes. "This knowledge has not been lost, it's exactly where it was 20 years ago." But, you know, we're not telling.

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