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 a show of altered images, an 80mm f2.8 Planar Rolleiflex, 25 new Creative Cloud videos and Trevor Traynor.

  • In Posing Questions of Photographic Ethics, James Estrin reviews Michael Kamber's show Altered Images: 150 Years of Posed and Manipulated Documentary Photography, featuring 40 faked images, which has just opened at the Bronx Documentary Center. Kamber calls out the fakes and doesn't mince words. "Just get it right. Don't change things, don't direct your subjects, don't lie in your captions, don't move pixels. Get it right. That's what we're here to do."
  • Michael Reichmann couldn't help himself. He bought an 80mm f2.8 Planar Rolleiflex to shoot film again. He confesses all in A TLR, Film and Doing Things the Hard Way. Including that the photos accompanying the story are all digital.
  • Terry White has released 25 new videos "outlining the individual top features of Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Muse CC, Lightroom CC and the updated Mobile Apps." Here's the first (go to the YouTube page for a single playlist pointing to the rest of them):

More to come...
