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 Croatia, 1970s soul and funk musicians, mental health, the Aston Martin, Z 7 NEFs, the best comment ever and the Harris Shutter Effect.

  • Alan Taylor presents 30 stunning images in A Photo Trip to Croatia. "More than four million people call Croatia home today, living in rural villages, coastal tourist destinations and modern cities, where Roman ruins can stand side by side with medieval defenses and 21st-century architecture," he writes.
  • In Chronicling the Virtuosity and Struggles of 1970s Soul and Funk Musicians, Maurice Berger continues his series Race Stories with the intimate photos of Bruce Talamon. "These photographs are a celebration of the music, an aesthetic, a style that's gone," Talamon told him. "But for that moment, it was magical." The images will be published on Oct. 1 in Bruce W. Talamon: Soul. R&B. Funk. Photographs 1972-1982.
  • Joshua Lutz's 'Mind the Gap' Meditates on Mental Health Amid Constantly Troubling News, reports Conor Risch. The new book is "an exploration through photographs and text of how our society and the things we experience affect our mental health."
  • The Evolution of Aston Martin in Photos gives one hope that some day they'll get that grill right.
  • Thom Hogan suggests you "grab a Z 7 NEF off the Internet somewhere and open it up with a text or byte editor. Notice anything? The Z's are populating the new NEF format with some additional information. Why? In particular, a whole bunch of new setting entries, which seem to align with Adobe Raw development items."
  • Mike Johnston reprises the Best Comment Ever of the 270,000 he's received at The Online Photographer. The short version: we're doomed. Why? We can't focus on creativity if we're always shopping for (and trying to master) new gear.
  • Just when you were getting bored with the whole subject, Dahlia Ambrose explains The Harris Shutter Effect. And, more importantly, how to simulate it in your image editing software.

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