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 Mylo Fowler, Christoffer Relander, time or money, a lesson relearned, Lightroom's HSL/Color and B&W Panels, the 2022 World Dog Championships and Olivia Newton-John.

  • Grace Ebert presents the Double-Exposure Photos of Finnish photographer Christoffer Relander which blend portraiture and nature. "Taken in black-and-white, the images delicately balance the human and natural elements, allowing facial details to peek through a garden of daisies or superimposing a deserted roadway into a profile so that it appears to lead into the figure," she writes.
  • In What Would Thom Buy? Thom Hogan points out that's the wrong question. And buying itself is probably the wrong activity. "Time is the first thing you should invest in to make your photography better," he writes. Not, in short, money.
  • And in what should be a companion piece to Hogan's, Kirk Tuck learns the Same Lesson Over and Over Again.. "Like many photographers who are inordinately fond of gear I keep looking for that one perfect lens or camera that will unlock my true photographic potential. if.," he begins. "It's a bit unreal to come to grips with the fact that you've duped yourself into believing that a specific piece of gear can be so, so, so important to a process that you can rationalize spending a fortune on a lens that you end up rarely using."
  • Julieanne Kost tours The HSL/Color & B&W Panels in Lightroom Classic. We spend a lot of time with these and it's always profitable.
  • Danielle Echeverria saw Surfing Dogs Take the Waves in Pacifica Competition and Justin Katigbak got the photos. It was the 2022 World Dog Championships.
  • Greg Whitmore presents a collection of images celebrating the life of singer, actor and activist Olivia Newton-John, who has died at the age of 73.

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