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 Damon Caserez, Lightroom mobile presets, the Webbs after Kodak, the Lenka black-and-white app (plus more iPhone links) and Yongnuo strobes.

  • In Damon Casarez: The New York Times Magazine, Heidi Volpe interviews Casarez on getting the Boomerang kids assignment after pitching only three images.
  • Julienna Kost shows you where to download the Lightroom Mobile Presets optimized for mobile devices that are included with Lightroom mobile but not desktop Lightroom.
  • The N.Y. Times Lens blog features Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, a husband and wife team, that documented Kodak after the bankruptcy. In Kodak's Hometown, Memory and History. Warning: it may make you cry. Kodachrome reduced to black and white, alas.
  • So you know iOS 8 will "expose just about every manual camera control possible," as Joshua Ho put it in his AnanTech story. But did you know Om Malik really like Kevin Abosch's Lenka for black and white photography on his iPhone? Something to read while you're waiting for a Big iPhone or just wondering about it.
  • Kirk Tuck bought some Yongnuo 560 type 2 strobes for location lighting. "I once again learned that traveling light is traveling happy," he writes.

That's more than four but, you know, more to come...
