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 San Francisco, Hollywood extras, atmospheric perspective, photo retouching and visual marketing.

  • National Geographic has listed 25 Breathtaking Places and Experiences for 2023, among which is San Francisco (in the family category). If you can't get on the site, James Salazar spills the San Francisco story about San Francisco at the Examiner.
  • Keith Bernstein photographs Hollywood Extras on every production he works. His series %5FExtras_ is on exhibit at Crane Kalman gallery in Brighton, England, until Dec. 16 but the Guardian has a selection online.
  • Rob Wood breaks down Atmospheric Perspective to improve landscape photos. "Aerial perspective, sometimes known as "atmospheric perspective" is the visual phenomenon in a landscape by which the foreground is dark-toned and more detailed, the middle ground is mid-toned and less detailed and the background has a lighter tone and the least detail," he writes.
  • A professional retoucher on Reddit asks, Is Photo Retouching a Dead Career? And gets an update on the state of the profession as well as some advice for surviving what one commenter called "a race to the bottom."
  • In Why Visual Marketing Is Still the Best Way to Get 69% of Customers, Sofiia Shvets argues for the importance of photography in marketing with a few tips on making images more effective.

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