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 the Magnum square print sale, Houston's FotoFest, an old fire engine, Sigma fp color images, Julieann Kost, a cheap lens, adaptive presets, a flash photography primer and the new iPad.

  • Why Would You Put a Cheap Lens on an Expensive Camera? Derrick Story asks. He has some answers in his latest podcast. Along with a story about an FBI arrest of a gallery owner who is "accuse of cheating clients out of more than 100 rare fine art photographs."
  • Adaptive presets are the topic in Edit Any Part of a Photo With a Preset in Lightroom. Using AI masking to quickly select an object, you can apply a preset to just that selection.
  • Jason Row presents a Flash Photography Primer for the dispirited. He blames internal popup flashes that "push out a harsh, very direct flash that can give a very unflattering shot" for discouraging the exploration of artificial light.
  • Dan Moren reports Apple Revamps iPad With New Design, Revs iPad Pro to M2. "The redesign of the iPad -- I hesitate to call it the 'base-level iPad' for reasons that will be shortly apparent -- makes it very similar to the iPad Air, including a USB-C port, Touch ID on the power button and the same 12-megapixel wide camera," he writes.

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