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 the Women's Marches, Pittsburgh migration stories, image compression technology, the Panasonic G9, hot gear and beauty photography.

  • Alan Taylor presents 45 Photos of a Women's March Weekend from demonstrations in Washington, New York, Chicago, Boston, Los Angeles, Seattle, and from cities in England, Sweden, France, Canada, Germany, Italy and more.
  • Jonathan Blaustein recounts some Migration Stories From the Stoops of Pittsburgh from a variety of photographers. Art historian Brian Cohen said, "I guess we're hoping for this project to at least enable people to remember that they too and their ancestors, came from somewhere else."
  • Stephen Shankland looks over the JPEG alternatives to image compression, including HEIC and AV1.
  • Robin Wong reviews the Panasonic Lumix G9. With an interesting twist. "There is no easy way of saying this, but I dislike the color profile of the G9," he writes. "The default JPEG color and the white balance engine don't work for me." So he shot Raw and converted the images in the review to DNG which he processed in Capture One Pro.
  • Thom Hogan lists What's Still Hot? in cameras while we're "waiting for the next round of new and exciting camera products to drop."
  • In Getting Started in Beauty Photography, Zach Sutton starts with the fear and goes through some lighting setups before some thoughts on workflow and retouching.

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