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 Mark De Paola, silky macros on a mirrorless setup, iSize and the humanities as a background for software development.

  • Mark De Paola shows What 60 Seconds of Handheld Exposure Can Create. "Each image in the 60 Seconds series was exposed by natural light coming through my New York studio windows in near complete darkness," he says. An exhibition of the project's images will be held at the Leica Gallery in Los Angeles from June 16 through July 18.
  • Derrick Story mounts a Zeiss 50mm SLR Lens on Mirrorless for Silky Macros. "I wanted two things from this shoot: as shallow depth of field as possible and no tripod," he writes. "I got both with this combination."
  • London-based iSize offers a fast, free or premium, cloud-based solution for increasing image size up to eight times and video resolution to 4K with advanced noise filtering. "Our state of the art artificial intelligence algorithms make it possible to scale up images while preserving quality and sharpness, something that was impossible to imagine until now," CEO Sergio Grce said.
  • In To Write Better Code, Read Virginia Woolf, J. Branford Hipps argues the value of an education in the humanities for critical thinking and imaginative problem solving. And writing software. It certainly seems to be what's missing in many current releases.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
