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 Instagram's Hyperlapse, 10 quotes from Dorothea Lange, Michael's Phlog and two images where the lens is the story.

  • Instagram has introduced Hyperlapse, a new free iOS app, to stabilize your time-lapse video. An Android app will require hardware changes to Android phones, according to Cliff Kuang's story for Wired. Here's Instagram's demo:
  • In advance of PBS's two-hour premiere of American Masters -- Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning this Friday, the network has published 10 Things to Learn About Photography and Life from Dorothea Lange.
  • Michael Reichmann describes his new Michael's Phlog as "a real-time photographic diary of my photography, as I shoot it. Every few days as I travel and do my landscape as well as documentary shooting, I will feature a few new images and also a discussion -- technical, aesthetic and situational -- about the making of each images." A forum has been dedicated to discussion of the images.
  • here's two completely different subjects where the lens (and in one case the post processing) is the story. Derrick Story got his hands on a Panasonic Leica DG Nocticron 42.5mm f1.2 for a stunning portrait of Joseph Linaschke and Harold Davis popped a Carl Zeiss Distagon 15mm f2.8 lens on his Nikon D800 to capture "an entire dynamic range of light" in Abandoned Building, Point Richmond -- with the help of Nik HDR Efex Pro.

More to come...
