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 Women's World Cup fans, Phillip Toledano, Diamante, Shardana, noise reduction, the TTArtisans 90mm lens and strange things written.

  • Nadir Kinani presents colorful images of The Fans of Women's World Cup from a variety of sources.
  • In Another America, Jim Casper interviews Phillip Toledano about tapping into AI to create alternative histories of the 1940s and 1950s, challenging our belief in any images at all. "The metaphor, the analogy, I use for working with AI is that it's like working with a very talented, very drunk person," he says.
  • Rad Drew praises Diamante, City of Murals on Italy's western coast in the province of Cosenza, part of the Calabria region of southern Italy. "While I almost always use a Fuji mirrorless and an iPhone, each of the images here was made with the iPhone XS Max and processed with Lightroom Mobile and/or the mobile app SnapSeed," he writes.
  • In Shardana, Mallorcan photographer Tomeu Coll visits Sardinia with a Leica Q3. "I was specially interested in exploring the roots that have defined the Sardinian people throughout history, whether it's the respect and preservation of their traditions, their indigenous sense or, in particular, their resistance when the island was faced with invasions and conquests," he says.
  • Thom Hogan considers The State of Noise Reduction, processing the same D2x image in Camera Raw, PureRaw and Topazlabs.
  • Kirk Tuck slaps a used TTArtisans 90mm f1.25 lens on his Fujifilm GFX 50S II and walked down S. Congress Ave. "I shot mostly at f2.8 with a few images at f5.6 and fewer still at f1.4," he writes.
  • In Strange Things Written on the Internet XXVII, Thom Hogan tackles market share, entry-level film photographers, sexy Fujifilm cameras, film costs, affiliate commissions, 6K displays and sensor sizes.

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