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 snorkeling tips, 130 Snowden portraits, Prince William retouched and Lumoid kit rentals.

  • Derrick Story lists Five Tips for Snorkeling Photographers. Our least favorite involves getting up early in the morning. Our most favorite is what focus lock can do for you.
  • Society photographer Lord Snowdon has donated 130 original prints to Britain's National Portrait Gallery, including images of David Bowie, Nell Dunn, Princess Margaret, Kingsley Amis, Graham Green, Yehudi Menuhin, George Melly and Barbara Hepworth. Some of them will appear for the first time in Snowdon: A Life In View at the National Portrait Gallery in London from Sept. 26 to June 21, 2015.
  • Amy Odell at Cosmopolitan reports Vanity Fair has finally Photoshopped a man in Prince William Plagued by Photoshop Scandal. "A close examination of their [August] cover photo suggests that the magazine -- OMG, let's all freak out and cry Photoshop! -- added dark fuzz to the balding prince's head." Things were much more civilized when Joe Pugliese had all the July magazine covers.
  • rents photo gear (including Google Glass) but also recommends kits for weddings, travel, parties, macro, sports, etc. You also get the option to buy with part of your rental cost credited to the purchase. Here's how it works:
