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 Dora Maar, Strasbourg, 100 Battles Magazine, Rebecca, a history of photography, night shots, color fading, the Canon ImagePrograf Pro-1000 and Shutterstock.

  • In Windows of the Mind, the Guardian presents a few photos taken by Dora Maar in 1930s Paris on exhibit at Huxley-Parlour in London until Nov. 19.
  • Arriving in Strasbourg, Harold Davis was greeted by a thunderstorm.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Amy Silverman about being the photography director for 100 Battles Magazine, which covers business news with photo stories. "I knew we would need a lot more than portraits to keep it compelling," she says.
  • Kirk Tuck captured this Portrait of Rebecca after the rehearsal shoots. "Generally, the photographs you capture before or after the 'official' or 'assignment' images are the ones you want to keep," he writes.
  • Rob Wood presents A History of Photography and How It Shaped the World, apparently prepared by Jordan Boggs.
  • Dave Williams celebrates The Power of iPhone with some night shots. "Here's a pro-tip: the night mode on iPhone allows us to shoot for 10 seconds handheld, as I'm sure you will have noticed, but get that phone stable on a tripod and you can shoot for up to 30 seconds," he writes.
  • In Don't Forget Sunblock, Getty Conservation Institute scientist Michael Doutre breaks out the aging machine to learn about how artworks change over time:

  • Dahlia Ambrose tags the 11-ink Canon ImagePrograf Pro-1000 as the best photo printer for studios. A 17-inch printer, it's a bit much for the home office, though.
  • James Vincent reports Shutterstock Will Start Selling AI-Generated Stock Imagery With Help From OpenAI. "The mediums to express creativity are constantly evolving and expanding," Shutterstock CEO Paul Hennessy said. "We recognize that it is our great responsibility to embrace this evolution and to ensure that the generative technology that drives innovation is grounded in ethical practices."

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