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 cycling photography, the pioneers who printed images on paper, a Lightroom confusion dispelled and Darktable 2.2.

  • In Capturing the Spirit of Cycling, Matt Randall talks about capturing "the different levels of road cycling from the intimacy of preparing to ride, the suffering and commitment, to the role of style and the pride of winning." He wonders if the impractically of using a Leica M9 for sports photography contributed to the style of his images.
  • The Style Pioneers of Photography on Paper is a book excerpt by Sylvie Aubenas describing "how photography using paper, instead of glass or metalâ€ö flourished quietly as an art form in the mid-nineteenth century."
  • Scott Kelby is busy Dispelling Lightroom's Hidden 'Auto Adjustment on Import' Myth this morning. The short version: you're seeing the optimized JPEG thumbnail of the Raw capture during import before the Raw data is loaded.
  • The first release candidate of Darktable 2.2 [LMW] is now available for download. It features automatic perspective correction, a Liquify tool, CLUT color editing, a functional highlight construction module and more.

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