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 Anna Maria Verzino, the Panasonic GH5, a licensing extension, two Apple videos on Portrait Lighting, Nikon SB-5000 Speedlights, five tech myths and Tuscany via an iPhone 8+.

  • Italy's 81-Year-Old 'Bride of the Sea' is Anna Maria Verzino of Casalbordino Lido between Ancona and Bari on the Adriatic. This sequence of 13 black-and-white images by Annalisa Marchionna shows her at work and at rest. Somehow it resonated with your old editor.
  • In The Process of 'Zeroing In' a Camera, Kirk Tuck talks about understanding color capture in his Panasonic GH5 cameras. Using ISO 400 and below, he finds "a really rich color palette and a wonderful ability to render flesh tones at these lower ISO settings."
  • Jess Dudley negotiates a Licensing Extension. "As many of you have surely experienced, clients are increasingly expecting unlimited use, by default, regardless of the intended use," he points out. "Nevertheless, it is important to press against that default request whenever you face it."
  • Apple has released two short videos showing how to shoot and editor with its Portrait Lighting:

  • In Speedlights on the Ground!, Joe McNally returns to earth with his SB-5000 Speedlights. And just in time to explain line of sight and radio communication modes. "It was actually quite simple," he says.
  • In Five Tech Myths People Still Believe, Alan Henry hits a few sore spots for photographers. Specs, megapixels, batteries, extended warranties. Worth a peek.
  • Om Malik shares some images of Tuscany From the Lens of iPhone 8+. "These photos are a joy -- straight JPEGs out of the phone, with my special, presets applied to give them a more uniform feel," he writes.

We're running the public service notice below to remind Americans they can sign up for the American Health Care from Nov. 1 to Dec. 15 to be insured in 2018.

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