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 Chernobyl, the 2019 Wellcome Photography Prize, dating app photos, the Nikon Z system, shooting in harsh sunlight, Snapseed, the colors of climate crisis and rediscovering a lost photo.

  • Alan Taylor shares 18 Photos From the 1986 Chernobyl Disaster. "The workers and emergency responders were not the only ones to risk their lives -- a handful of photographers went to the scene as well, managing to capture images of some of the chaos and acts of heroism that took place in the weeks and months that followed," he writes.
  • Sean O'Hagan highlights the shortlist for The 2019 Wellcome Photography Prize for "compelling imagery that captures stories of health, medicine and science."
  • Eddie Hernandez charges $875 for Dating App Photos. And he has a lot of advice on how to take a good one.
  • In Z Week: Your Questions Answered, Thom Hogan answers readers' ongoing questions about Nikon's Z system.
  • Derrick Story has a tip for Harsh Sun -- Go Black and White.
  • Google has updated Snapseed with support for iOS 12; iPhone XR, XS and XS Max; and the iPad Pro 11 and 12.9.
  • In Glowing Glowing Gone: Colors of Climate Crisis, Adobe announces "a campaign developed in partnership with The Ocean Agency -- the nonprofit and Adobe Stock contributor behind the award-winning Netflix Original Documentary Chasing Coral -- that aims to inspire action against climate change through creativity." The campaign kicks off with a design challenge inviting brands and the creative community to show their support for ocean conservation by using a palette of coral colors in creative designs, products and more.
  • In Rediscovering My Father, Shannon Luders-Manuel finds a copy of the only good photo she ever had taken with her father.
