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 Robert Darch, Santacon, Vibrance vs. Saturation, subscriptions, the Leica Q2, tipping and visual tech.

  • In Welcome to Brexit Island, Robert Darch shows a selection of images from The Island, a look at life for young people in small towns after Brexit. "Rather than trying to explain or rationalize what happened I started taking pictures that reflected how I felt about the freedoms we had lost and what I imagined the future would hold," he writes.
  • Joe McNally steps out with a Nikon Z 9 and a Profoto A10 to shoot Bright Lights, Big City, and ... Santacon. Before the bar crawl.
  • Julieanne Kost explains The Difference Between the Vibrance and Saturation Sliders. Saturation makes absolute adjustments to all color equally while Vibrance is relative and adjusts "orange, red, and yellow values less than other colors," protecting skin color.
  • I Am Worn Out by Subscriptions, Derrick Story admits after calculating over $600 month he pays for them. He's unhappy with Capture One's recent announcement and "not sure how that's going to effect my future with them."
  • Kirk Tuck takes his Leica Q2 out for a few tests (this is just the last of several) and returns with a slide show. He likes the detail and color.
  • A small family that bought $330 worth of prints wonders about Tipping Mall Photographers after being presented with a minimum 15 percent ($60) option at the register. Or, to put it another way, is a mall photographer a professional photographer or a service worker?
  • In 2022: A Year of Visual Tech in Review, Paul Melcher writes, "It is impossible for companies today to sell services or products without the help and support of visual content. And it is equally impossible for us individuals to communicate with each other without using visual content."

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