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 Ernst Haas, Asia, looking, film days and enhancing a photo.

  • Ernst Haas's American West showcase the photographer's color images from a new 224-page book Ernst Haas: The American West. "I never really wanted to be a photographer," Haas once said. "It slowly grew out of the compromise of a boy who desired to combine two goals -- explorer or painter."
  • The Associated Press present images from the Year in Asia. "Natural disasters and crowd-related tragedies claimed hundreds of lives in Asia and overshadowed the Covid-19 pandemic, with most countries easing or completely lifting the tough restrictions of the previous two years."
  • In Photographing Is Nothing -- Looking Is Everything, Russ Lewis (who is 92 now) quotes Henri Cartier-Bresson to provide a little perspective. "Photographers tend to get wrapped around the axle on equipment, which is understandable when you consider the complexity and capability of modern digital cameras," he writes. "But the equipment has almost nothing to do with good photography."
  • In A Throwback to the Film Days, Kirk Tuck remembers a simple shoot with a chef where she worked. "After I wrapped up the one light and the extension cord, tossed the gear into the nearby car, we shared some red wine and a foie gras appetizer Alma had concocted," he writes. Then he took the four rolls o 12 exposure medium format transparency film to the lab.
  • Jasenka Grujin explains How to Enhance a Photo with 10 tips especially useful for beginners. "While learning how to enhance a photo is a long process, it's good to start with basic enhancements and slowly develop your own style while trying to understand how to both retain image quality and create something unique," she writes.

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