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 Elia Alba, Luke Hayes, the Fujifilm GFX 50R, the Nikon 1, zooming and a free 10-week portrait challenge.

  • Maurice Berger continues his Race Series with Artists of Color as Avatars of Originality and Brilliance featuring the photographs of Elia Alba. The images come from her new book Elia Alba: The Supper Club. "In the end," Berger writes, "these vibrant portraits represent their subjects not simply as culturally expressive, but also as embodying the potential of a refreshed and relevant cultural world unencumbered by racism."
  • Stephanie Wade presents Luke Hayes' Poignant Imagery of Mysteriously Dead Oak Trees. The London-based photographer's Dead Oaks series portrays "an extraordinary landscape," Hayes says.
  • Zach Sutton reviews the medium format Fujifilm GFX 50R. The camera suffers "ergonomics of a small shoebox," he writes, with no grip, "a significant flaw." But it does "takes an incredible image," he acknowledges.
  • Thom Hogan has A Prediction About the Nikon 1. "Several of the Nikon 1 products are going to be classic and collectable," he writes.
  • Julieanne Kost has been posting very short tips about using Photoshop CC. Today's Zooming While in a Dialog Box is one not widely known.
  • Photographer Lindsay Alder is hosting a free 10-Week Portrait Challenge at CreativeLive. "You'll try new techniques, pick up new skills and expand your photographic creativity," Kim Cortigiano promises.

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