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 filming police activity, modifying light with a polarizer and flash, Liquify's facial recognition and hashtags.

  • Robinson Meyer explains What to Say When the Police Tell You to Stop Filming Them. The police "can't "confiscate or demand to view" audio or video without a warrant and they can't ever delete images," he writes.
  • In Modifying Light in Telling a Story, Moose Peterson uses a filtered flash and a polarizer to dramatic effect on an overcast day.
  • Kirk Tuck finds a clever use for Photoshop's new facial recognition feature in Liquify. "I wanted to open up or enlarge the subject's eyes a little bit to compensate for a very slight squint that was inevitable in the bright environment," he writes.
  • Hashtag problems? Dehaze is s a tool (in beta) "to find the right photography hashtags for your photo on Instagram," according to the developer.

We've also updated our Calendar yesterday and there's always more to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
