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 end-of-life products, winter landscapes, window portraits and SSD errors.

  • Thom Hogan catalogs a few Photography Products on Life Support. "The tech world is ruthless in moving on from older tech and the pandemic-caused supply chain issues are making that happen faster, not sooner, for a number of items," he writes.
  • Ian Plant offers some Tips for Taking Amazing Winter Landscape Photos. "Resist the urge to stay warm and cozy and instead bundle up and get out there!" he urges.
  • In Window Portraits: How to Photograph a Reflection, Gustavo Minas walks through the process with a smartphone DNG in Lightroom mobile.
  • In How to Prevent Errors on SSDs, Howard Oakley points out that a sudden power loss can prevent cached data from being written to the drive. A laptop prevents the problem on internal drives but a UPS is the general solution. And it looks like power failures are going to become more common, not less.

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