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 (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at Photoshop color manipulation made easy, Harold Davis on photographing flowers transparently, transferring photographic styles and a Robert Capa D-Day image.

  • We enjoyed Photoshop Product Manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes' demo of selective color manipulation in Photoshop CC (because it makes hard stuff easy):
  • Harold Davis has published Photographing Flowers for Transparency to detail his "method of floral arrangement on a light box, followed by a sequence of aligned and bracketed high-key HDR exposures. Post-processing involves painting in the layers for transparency in Photoshop, and in some cases finishing the images by applying it to a background or adding a texture."
  • Larry Hardesty of MIT News reports on a new algorithm to transfer photographic styles from a source image to a destination image using facial recognition.
  • Time's Mia Tramz revisits Robert Capa's Iconic D-Day Photo of a Soldier in the Surf in time for the 70 anniversary of D-Day on June 6.

More to come...
