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 Anita Neugebauer, Adam Ferguson, Matt Stuart, the Olympus 75mm f1.8 lens, serendipity, color management and file integrity.

  • Vroom With a View showcases images curated by Anita Neugebauer, who founded Switzerland's first photo gallery in 1976.
  • In A Migrant Takes a Serene Selfie, Adam Ferguson describes a selfie taken by a 17-year-old Guatemalan migrant trying to enter the U.S. "The image feels distinctly different from the desperation captured in lots of migrant photography. That isn’t to play down the adversity she and her mother had endured, but here Stephanie could be anyone’s daughter, any young woman with aspirations, hopes and fears."
  • In Search of Brilliant Moments: Street Photography's Heightened Existence reprises a 2016 interview with Matt Stuart. "Be patient, optimistic; remember to smile, both for others and for yourself," he says.
  • Kirk Tuck puts a 2009 Olympus 75mm f1.8 Lens on his Panasonic GH6 for a stroll through downtown Austin. "Even wide open it hits the top of the resolution charts and by f2.5 to 2.8 the optical quality is something to write home about," he writes.
  • In the first of a three part series presenting 50 photographs, Harvey Stearn celebrates Serendipity: God's Gift to Photographers.
  • In What Is Color Management? Datacolor's John Walrath details the various touchpoints of color management in the photographic workflow and how managing color. The piece links to a free Spyder-eBook on the subject as well.
  • Howard Oakley looks at Maintaining the Integrity of Important Files. You might think a simple copy would check for success, but no. His free utilities can, though.

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