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 Yona Elig, Martin Evening's comparison of Lightroom with Capture One Pro, the Panasonic GX8 on sale and Francis Hodgson.

  • Olaf Willoughby's interview with Yona Elig about her project Cafe Culture, a Travellers Viewpoint. "I use Adobe Lightroom for my basic processing, black and white conversion, adjusting exposure, highlights, shadows and so on," she says. "When I discovered the iPad Pro and Apple pen plus the Procreate application, I found a marriage made in heaven! I discovered that by adding and painting on textures I could introduce light while keeping part of the composition dark."
  • Scott Kelby links to Martin Evening's comparison of default Raw processing in Lightroom and Capture One Pro. Evening shows how you can create a Lightroom preset to mimic what Capture One Pro does by default.
  • In The Delicate State of the GX8, Mike Johnston speculates on the great deals offered on the Panasonic GX8, which can be had for about $650 at the moment.
  • In Any Surface You Like: Unseen Fair, 2016, Francis Hodgson finds "there is something uncomfortable in the way new snobbish self-conscious photography is ferociously consuming old vulgar vigorous photography while at the very same time despising it for its ... vulgarity."

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