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 John MacLean, Bob the flamingo, the Mori Digital Art Museum, WWDC news, Lightroom Collections and Adorama's Inspire event.

  • Rosie Flanagan explores John MacLean's Internal and External Worlds. London-based photographer's series City is also a two-part photo book.
  • In Meet Bob, wildlife photographer Jasper Doest "tells us what happened the first time he met Bob, how the flamingo is managing in his new environment in the middle of civilization and what we people can still learn from a bird." As he puts it, "It's difficult to describe the thoughts that go through your mind when a tall pink bird steps into your bedroom in the morning."
  • Ming Thein photographs the Mori Digital Art Museum. "To shoot -- it's something else, because you're basically trying to photograph a highly contrasty and saturated projection across multiple surfaces. And because the images are dynamic -- sometimes with serious speed -- composition is challenging indeed," he writes.
  • In his coverage of Apple's World Wide Developers Conference yesterday, Ric Ford reports "Apple's Camera app gets more 'portrait lighting' effects, while photo and video editing get a new user interface and 'advanced machine learning' to filter, organize and manage your images and create an A.I. 'diary of your life.' The same new AI-based photo management will be ported to macOS 10.15, he adds. Minor user interface changes have been made to Photos as well. You can watch the video replay of the keynote now.
  • Julieanne Kost provides some Tips and Shortcuts for Working With Collections in Lightroom Classic. She lists 11 tips and, at the end of the piece, links to four videos for further elucidation.
  • Adorama will be hosting its Inspire photo conference in New York City from June 18 to 20. The three-day event features "hands-on experience of all things photo, pro video and audio" with appearances by Nigel Barker, Joe McNally, Emily Soto and Andy To.

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