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 Alan Taylor, Pham Huy Trung, Chonk Daddies, soft focus filters, the Lightroom Ambassadors and Mike Johnston.

  • Alan Taylor presents 35 photos of the week including Firefighting Goats, Lake Chair, Saint Javelin. And not avoiding the tragedies. It was that kind of week.
  • Grace Ebert presents aerial photos of The Annual Harvests of Vietnam's Countryside captured by Pham Huy Trung. "Resplendent with vegetation, the images frequently center on industry and annual harvests to create a visual record of everyday activity," she writes.
  • Danielle Dierking photographs Chonk Daddies, staged portraits of guys with pet chickens and cats. "It gives me so much happiness to know my work and passion make the world smile every day," she says.
  • Lenses are so sharp these days, Michael Chiusano resorts to Soft Focus Filters. "Knowing which grade to use on a particular shot is a knack learned from experience; it's hard to make clearcut rules," he admits. Which is a good enough argument for softening focus in post-processing.
  • Adobe invites you to Meet the Lightroom Ambassadors, "a circle of photographers handpicked to inspire you and share their expertise with a range of tips and best practices -- from basic to advanced -- for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom and more." Take your time, there are 14 of them from all over the world.
  • Mike Johnston covers The Nikon Z 7 II, UFOs and Icebreakers after a visit with Dave Levingston, who shows him a neat trick for setting Exposure Compensation on his Z 7 II.

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