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 Lisa Saltzman, Joe McNally, a free halftone effect, the Basic Film Carrier 120, photography podcasts, Curves and public notice releases.

  • In City Anonymity, Heidi Volpe interviews Lisa Saltzman about her monochrome project that echoes Alberto Giacometti's sculptures. Saltzman also talks about the Saltzman Family Foundation she founded in honor of her father and recently established the Ralph Saltzman Prize at the Design Museum in London.
  • In There's a Place for Us, Joe McNally digs up some old photos of Leonard Bernstein after seeing the new Steven Spielberg adaptation of West Side Story. "I photographed Leonard Bernstein numerous times and always loved his company, including the sheer volcanic happenstance of his moods," he writes.
  • Pixelbuddah has contributed a Free Halftone Effect for Photoshop on the Creative Cloud blog. Designer Mark Pernice shows how to use it.
  • The Phoblographer reviews the Basic Film Carrier 120 from Negative Supply. "There's no other unit quite like it on the market and it's worth every penny." No cons.
  • Dave Williams lists four of The Best Photography Podcasts. "All of the podcasts I've mentioned above do a great job of entertaining us whilst provoking the creativity within us and inspiring us to get out and shoot," he writes.
  • Julieanne Kost explains The Tone Curve Panel in Lightroom Classic. Well, both of them. The Parametric and the Point curves.
  • Kirk Tuck wonders if public Notice Releases are legally binding. "The poster basically says that just by being in the area or anywhere around it ('environs') you are giving a commercial/for-profit production company and their 'for profit' client the right to use your likeness and voice anywhere in all media with no compensation whatsoever," he writes. "he saddest thing is that the production company was unwilling to provide hair and make-up services to their ostensibly hijacked talent."

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