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 last weekend's protests, Sage Sohier, high key lighting and LG's 5K displays near routers.

  • In A Weekend of Protest Against Trump's Immigration Ban, Alan Taylor presents 35 photos "from this weekend's protests against the ban, from New York, Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, Seattle, Washington, DC, Dallas, Boston, Detroit, Philadelphia and more."
  • In She Modeled in The 1940s. Now, Her Daughter Takes Her Picture, John Leland talks to Sage Sohier about her recreated family photos. "It's about relationships and the psychological tensions of relationships, especially in an aging female family," Sohier said. "The pictures are her trying to fix us and us resisting."
  • In Lighting Up!, Joe McNally goes high key with the Lastolite Uplite and a few strobes. We couldn't help looking at the histogram of one of the images just to check the highlights.
  • Zac Hall discovers the LG UltraFine 5K Display Can Become Unusable When Near a Router. "Right out of the box, UltraFine 5K Display was hardly usable as it would consistently disconnect and even freeze my MacBook Pro which made it unusable for work on Thursday and Friday," he writes. "Connecting it to my MacBook Pro consistently resulted in needing to reboot my machine to continue working."

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