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 Jordan, New York, combining video frames, iPhone Live Photo changes, black-and-white photographers and technical camera techniques.

"Jordan had offered us a perfect opportunity -- after years of stasis -- to discover a new place with a rich history and culture," he writes.

  • In Abstract New York, Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin challenge you to identify familiar New York City sights depicted in a few closeup photographs.
  • Julieanne Kost explores Combining Video Frames to Create Still Images using Smart Objects in combination with Stack modes. She builds one image and shows two other samples of the technique.
  • Dave Williams explains the iPhone Live Photo Changes in iOS 15.
