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. This time we look at Guatemala's civil war, the Strobist Lighting Cookbook, working with channels, Marina Amaral and Luminar with the iPhone.

  • In Witnessing Dignity Amid Death in Guatemala's Civil War, Robert Nickelsberg looks back at his efforts to photograph "the military and opposition groups ensnared in what would ultimately be a 36-year conflict that claimed the lives of more than 200,000 people, mostly indigenous Maya, between 1960 and 1996."
  • Strobist David Hobby introduces the Strobist Lighting Cookbook. "On Assignment was very much a wing-it-as-you-go kind of thing," he writes. "I have always regretted its lack of any real logical structure. The Lighting Cookbook is a second chance, to take the real-world information and organize it into something more coherent and navigable."
  • Julieanne Kost details Eight Shortcuts for Working With Channels in Photoshop. Don't miss the last one.
  • In Marina Amaral: A Splash of Color, Scott Kirkwood profiles the Photoshop colorist who can turn monochrome images into living, breathing color. "When you see a photo in color, you instantly feel more connected to the subject," Amaral said.
  • In Using iPhone X and Luminar for Landscape Photography, Derrick Story tells what happened when he jumped off his bike to get a shot under a bridge.
