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 Wesaam Al-Badry, Robert Darch, Tokyo, Gloria (the model), ACR's Enhanced Details, Jim Kasson and mistakes.

  • In A Refugee's Story: 'No One's Family Is Perfect but Mine Is Perfect for Me', James Estrin talks to Wesaam Al-Badry who documented his family members' refugee experiences. "My family are not one dimensional characters in a refugee story" Al-Badry says. "They have multiple layers, they have their own personalities, their own agency and ways of maneuvering through life."
  • Robert Darch's Photo Book Depicts a Dark Dystopian Future writes Rosie Flanagan about The Moor. "Darch's lens shifts from vertiginous, dark forest, to open grass plains, makeshift dwellings and figures illuminated and distorted by light," she adds.
  • Ming Thein's photoessay Cityscape Tokyo spans 12 years of images. "I realize that most of the early impressions no longer resonate with me as much as images shot in say the last four or five years, at most," he confesses.
  • Kirk Tuck remembers a lesson he learned from Gloria, "a cool and calm professional model," about making The Best Portraits.
  • Julieanne Kost explains the Enhanced Details features in the new release of Adobe Camera Raw. "Enhanced Details works on images captured using both Bayer and X-Trans sensors in order to improve the rendering of small-scale details and to prevent artifacts such as false colors, moirés and zippering," she writes.
  • Jim Kasson lists a number of reasons to explain Why We Photograph. "If you buy a violin, you own a violin; if you get a camera, you are a photographer," a friend once told him.
  • Dave Williams has an idea. Make Mistakes, he suggests, remembering a few of his own. They're great teachers. And on the same theme, Jason Bradley advises, Take More Crappy Pictures in 2019!. That should get your motor running.

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