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 Alexandre Menegini, Cody Cobb, Spandita Malik, musical photographs, mirrors, monitor calibration, an Apple Studio Display firmware update and Camille Seaman.

  • Young Cubans are Dreaming of the Major Leagues in this set of images by Alexandre Menegini. "In the past six years the number of baseball players that have left the country has also tripled compared with the decade between 2000 and 2010," says Francis Romero, a Cuban baseball expert and author.
  • Grace Ebert features The Extraterrestrial Luminescence of the American West in Cody Cobb's Photos. The Las Vegas photographer "projects an ultraviolet light source across desert shrubs and secluded, rocky coves, unveiling an invisible spectrum of blues and oranges."
  • In Nā́rī, Magali Duzant features the photographs of Spandita Malik who "collaborates with Indian women in the creation of embroidered portraits on fabric, subverting traditional ideas of artistic production and opening a space of creative freedom."
  • Meg Butler asks, Can You Find the Music in This Photograph? A new Getty exhibition highlights the Kamoinge Workshop's unusual (and musical) approach to photography. "Each member of the Kamoinge Workshop had their own way of incorporating their musical influences into their work," she writes.
  • Jasenka Grujin presents 21 Enchanting Photographs of Mirrors. "Mirrors are the most common secondary subjects in portraiture, but you can also use them in street and landscape photography," she writes. "They can be perfect subjects or props in abstract or conceptual photography too."
  • Kevin Raber reminds us monitor calibration is A Most Important Step to Great Prints. He uses two devices: A Spyder X Capture Pro and a Calibrite Color Checker Display Pro.
  • Apple has release Firmware Update 15.5 for the Apple Studio Display to resolve an audio issue and refine camera tuning (improving noise reduction, contrast and framing).
  • In A Brief but Spectacular Take on Being a Good Ancestor, photographer Camille Seaman merges "the realms of art and science in order to get a message across: we only get this one Earth and we must take care of it."

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