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 Fons Ianelli, that star-eating Sony, Photoshop's blur gallery, Hogan's favorite plug-ins and a photo book strikes gold.

  • In Camaraderie in the U.S. Navy: Photos From World War II, John Otis previews the upcoming Fons Ianelli show at Steven Kasher Gallery showing daily life at sea. After the war Ianelli became a very successful commercial photographer credited with several firsts: introducing bounce lighting in photojournalism, using 35mm for magazine work and using a handheld camera with a synced strobe in the field.
  • In Sony a7RII FW 4.0 Star-Eating, Jim Kasson tests the new firmware and finds "the differences don't look [like] they are significant."
  • Julieanne Kost offers a few Tips for Working With Blur Gallery in Photoshop CC with example shots and video tutorials. It's not a small subject.
  • Thom Hogan has an idea about What Happens Post Nik? At the end of which, he details three of his favorite plug-ins (including Piccure+).
  • Scott Kelby tells The Inspiring Story of How the Power of Photo Books Strikes Again. In this case how a few photos of Ann Wilson, lead singer of Heart, turned into a photo book that the singer decided to sell at her shows and online. And the photographer is an elementary education teacher.
