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 the 2017 Venice Biennale, Photoshop Week, Fred Lyon, the upgrade line, getting around a document in Photoshop, discounts on Adler's posing guide, film photography blogs and Esther Dyson's Flickr albums.

  • In Scenes From the 2017 Venice Biennale, Alan Taylor presents 21 images of the imaginative installations. Might as well take your socks off before you click the link so you can find them later.
  • CreativeLive is broadcasting free Photohop classes during Photoshop Week on two channels. You can ask on air questions during the broadcasts, too.
  • KQED recently broadcast an hour-long Truly CA episode on photographer Fred Lyon that takes you inside Lyon's world while showcasing his best known photos of the streets of San Francisco. And there's plenty of Fred himself, too.
  • Thom Hogan lists What Still Is Useful, What to Upgrade for both Nikon and Canon camps. He's talking camera bodies (well, sensors really). "I'm going to call a line and suggest that you upgrade if you're below it," he promises. But it's just a suggestion, remember.
  • Julieanne Kost continues her series of favorite shortcuts with Zoom, Pan, and Navigate Documents in Photoshop CC. Do you know how to display multiple windows for a single document?
  • Rocky Nook is offering discounts on Linday Adler's 448-page The Photographer's Guide to Posing. It's $20 for the ebook with code POSE20, $30 for the paperback with code POSE30 and $40 fore both with the code POSE40.
  • Film shooters will appreciate Jim Grey's list of Film Photography Blogs to follow. It's extensive.
  • Esther Dyson has published a few Flickr albums of 1980/90s personal computer luminaries attending the PC Forum. Jobs, Gates, Ballmer were all there, among many others. Sort of a Comic Con for nerds.

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