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 Super Snow Moon, portraiture, a unique image of the moon, "Earth", camera physics, DropKey Studio in a Bag and FlexClip.

  • Alan Taylor presents 18 Photos of the Super Snow Moon, which appeared 10 percent larger than usual last night.
  • In Capturing the Soul: Photographic Portraiture Before the Smartphone Era, Rena Silverman explores the exhibit Your Mirror: Portraits from the I.C.P. Collection at the International Center of Photography.
  • This 80-Megapixel Image of the Moon is composed of 50,000 photos taken by Andrew McCarthy using two cameras.
  • NASA has published Earth, a free online photo essay you can download as a PDF, Kindle book or ePub. "We chose these images because they inspire. They tell a story of a 4.5-billion-year-old planet where there is always something new to see. They tell a story of land, wind, water, ice and air as they can only be viewed from above," Michael Carlowicz writes in the foreword.
  • Ming Thein argues Bigger Isn't Always Better because you can't see the difference "most of the time." He lists seven points before comparing the performance of three cameras in different situations.
  • The $999 DropKey Studio in a Bag is an inflatable studio with a green screen, lights, inputs for wireless mics (wired mics come with it). The collapsible and flight-ready unit can be set up in 10 minutes:
  • FlexClip is "a simple, powerful and flexible video maker that helps you create marketing videos and family stories in minutes," according to the company. The browser-based video editor is also free.

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