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 creepy photos, Karen Hutton, tropical landscapes, smart objects, colorizing photos and Lexar's 1-TB card.

  • "Photographers have pretty much always creeped people out," Jordan Teicher writes in The Strange, the Surreal and the Downright Scary, which presents a few photos from the New Orleans Museum of Art.
  • SmugMug's newest film, Framing the Journey, features Karen Hutton making her way through Slovenia for the first time followed by filmmaker Anton Lorimer as she captures the country's rich colors and textures. The film launches Jan. 14 at 8:30 a.m. PST. Here's the trailer:
  • Ming Thein presents a set of Tropical scenes "as a mid-winter pick-me-up for those of you living in the northern hemisphere, a celebration of summer for those in the southern and a reminder of why we live in the tropics for those of us on the equator."
  • Julieanne Kost continues her 3, 2, 1, Photoshop! series with Duplicate and Copy Smart Objects. Duplicates are dependent but copies are independent:
  • In No Color Photos of Jazz Singer Mildred Bailey Existed ... Until Now, Dan Jones presents Marina Amaral's colorization of a Gjon Mili black-and-white photo of the jazz great. Amaral admits the colorizations can not be historically accurate, acknowledging they "are as much about encouraging questions about past events as depicting them objectively." But in this case, at least, it really swings.
  • Lexar plans to sell the first 1-TB SDXC Card, which "should be fast enough for most cameras to capture 4K video (class V30) and a long burst of Raw photos," Steve Dent writes.

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