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 Inge Morath, a VSCO tutorial, holistic portraits and Viviane Sassen.

  • In What Inge Morath Saw: A Unique Sense of Style, Kerri MacDonald presents nine images from the new book about the late Magnum photographer Inge Morath: On Style by Justine Picardie.
  • Kate Wesson provides a VSCO Tutorial that covers both camera settings and post processing. "The best way to get to know these tools is to set aside some time and just try using them on your photos," she concludes.
  • In Kathy K. In the Old Studio, Kirk Tuck admits he's "been in a bit of a funk lately. Clients keep calling me to do portraits but mostly they want me to shoot against white so they can drop out the background and paste the image of the person into some other background." He wants to know "what happened to the idea of a holistic portrait?"
  • Pier 24 Photography has announced a free Lecture with Viviane Sassen, the Dutch photographer, on Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. at the California College of the Arts, San Francisco. "Her highly distinctive style reflects an innovative and dynamic approach to the medium, producing images with an expressive use of color and tone, unusual viewpoints and sculptural concern with form and shape that often give her compositions a surreal quality."

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