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 Matthew O'Brien, photochrom postcards, 30-bit color monitors and a request for help.

  • In A Portrait of Colombia in 26 Gorgeous Polaroids, Mark Murrmann presents documentary photographer Matthew O'Brien's Polaroids from the country taken between 2003 and 2013. The images contradict "the stereotype of the country as a war-ravaged narco-state and more closely reflected reality for most who live there, as well as for the tourists who visit."
  • Rian Dundon presents a few Vivid Color Photos From the 1890s, photochrom postcards in which the color was simulated in the printing process with up to 15 color plates.
  • In Reader Question: 30-Bit Color, Lloyd Chamers talks about the importance of internal 14-bit true internal calibration while noting that 10-bit color "made no real difference to me."
  • In How to Capture OOF PSFs, Jim Kasson writes, "I'm going to be needing out of focus point spread functions from various lenses for my bokeh simulator project. Here's how to capture them." Volunteers?

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