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 refugee profiles by writer Nadine Alfa and photographer Aubrey Wade, Raw iPhone images with Ben Rice McCarthy, Austin Mann's iPhone 7 Plus review and Unsplash.

  • 'No Stranger Place' -- Photography Project Follows Refugees Finding Home in Europe is a series of stories by writer Nadine Alfa and photographer Aubrey Wade profiling refugees and their hosts across Europe. They found an architect helping Syrians in Sweden, a Jewish family opening their Berlin home to Muslim refugees and an Austrian mother introducing a Syrian refugee as her son.
  • Ben Rice McCarthy, the guy behind the Obscura camera app, explains How Raw changes iPhone photography for the better. He walks through an architectural shot comparing the JPEG capture to a Raw conversion and discusses a 1,300 portrait shoot using speedlights.
  • Austin Mann's iPhone 7 Plus Camera Review: Rwanda comes to you "from deep in the Nyungwe rain forest in southwest Rwanda. We've been tracking gorillas in the north, boating Lake Kivu in the west and running through tea plantations in the south -- all with the iPhone 7 Plus in hand."
  • Unsplash provides "free (do whatever you want) high-resolution photos" by "thousands of photographers from all over the world." Now there's a book of them, too.

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