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 August Sander; editing in both Lightroom and Photoshop; Profoto B1 and B2 monoblocs; and a last fireworks discussion.

  • In Fashion! NYC! TTL!, Joe McNally relies on his Nikon's TTL to control Profoto's B1 and B2 units. "I was talking to the B1's in the studio and the B2's in the field, via TTL commands originating in collaborative fashion from my Nikon D810 in perfectly seamless fashion."
  • For the last word (this year) on fireworks, do a post mortem with Terry White, who explains How to shoot fireworks and cheat. He used a four second exposure, proving the wisdom of sticking with Bulb. But he neatly describes how to compensate in post processing. And for an extra bonus, Scott Kelby suggests using Lightroom's dehaze filter to minimize the smoke.
