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 2018 Underwater Photographer of the Year Contest, the Canon G1X Mark III, DPRSplit, two Star Magnolias, a DIY bike holster, Erik Johansson, London's East End and Camerafound.

  • Hold your breath. Alan Taylor presents 30 images by the winners of the 2018 Underwater Photographer of the Year Contest. Categories include Wide Angle, Macro, Wrecks, Behavior, Portrait, Black & White, Compact, Up & Coming, and, in British waters, Wide Angle, Compact and Macro shots. German photographer Tobias Friedrich won Underwater Photographer of the Year.
  • Ming Thein reviews the Canon G1X Mark III, which he finds "an immensely capable camera" but quite slow to deploy.
  • DPRSplit is a file splitter for Canon 5D Mark IV dual-pixel Raw files. Thom Hogan explains how it works in Dynamic Range From Dual Pixels.
  • Harold Davis took a walk down the street and captured a Star Magnolia. Well, two of them.
  • Derrick Story explains his ingenious DIY Bike Holster for Peddling Photographers using an old camera holster. After setting it up, "I'm shooting more on my riding errands," he writes.
  • In Seeing the World Through a Surreal Lens, Alyssa Coppelman catches up with photographer Erik Johansson, famed for his surreal images. He's building more extensive sets for his multiple-shot images now. A short video in the piece takes a look at the making of his Full Moon Service image.
  • In Unseen 1960s Photos of London's East End, Anika Burgess presents a few of amateur photographer David Granick's color images. Apart from their historical interest, they make a great image editing challenge for anyone. Try to correct the color balance and exposure.
  • Post photos from (and of) lost and found cameras at Camerafound and cross your fingers.

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