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 orcas, Robin Wong, the Anthropocene, Jackie Robinson, Amy Wolff, image stabilization, radial masks and Julieanne Kost.

  • In Swimming With Orcas in Norway, Alan Taylor highlights 18 images by Olivier Morin of "swimming in a frigid fjord with a group of orcas as they hunted for herring."
  • Robin Wong presents the second part of his street shots of Bangkok. He spent a day at the Ayutthaya historical park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. "The simple question I asked myself repeatedly was -- 'if I take this shot, will I find another similar one online?'"
  • In Scenes From the Anthropocene, an Earth Forever Changed by Humans, Jason Kottke shows just two of Edward Burtynsky's stills from The Anthropocene Project, a multimedia undertaking that showcases the effect humans have had on our planet. But they're enough.
  • In On Jackie Robinson's 100th Birthday, 100 Photos of an Icon, The New York Times has published a slide show and personal essays by its writers honoring the man who broke the color barrier in the major leagues.
  • David Walker interviews Amy Wolff, the photo director of Runner's World and Bicycling about who she's hired. "I've met so many photographers and I sort of know at this point what I think they can do, based on the work I've seen and the conversations I've had," she says. "I make a point of talking to people first and knowing what they're into."
  • Zach Sutton explains How Image Stabilization Works in Camera and in Lens. Don't skip the comments, though.
  • Derrick Story is making Better Vignettes With Capture One 12 Radial Masks. "At first you may think that's it's more complicated to create a mask than just using the vignette slider," he writes. "But to tell you the truth, once you've done it a couple times, it's just as easy... and so much better."
  • Julieanne Kost is teaching a full day pre-conference class on Lightroom Classic and Photoshop at the Renaissance Hotel in Dallas on Saturday, April 27.

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