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 Sophia Loren, Nik Bhatt, disinformation, Joe McNally and deepfakes.

  • Frozen in Time: Sophia Loren, London, June 1960 shows George Konig's photo of the actress on the set of The Millionairess. The Frozen in Time series has also presented Audrey Hepburn (1958) and Joan Didion (1972) as well as other notable images from the publication's photo morgue.
  • Nik Bhatt, the developer of Raw Power who led Apple's Aperture and iPhoto teams, describes The Ins and Outs of Non-Destructive Editing in Photos for Mac and iOS. Like why using Edit With is a mistake (it sends a TIFF of your Raw data).
  • Is Disinformation a Problem? Thom Hogan asks. "I caution everyone to be smart in their reliance upon external information being passed around on the Internet," he writes.
  • Joe McNally explains some Location Lighting With Lastolite. "In turns, we used Raw light, big panels of diffusion and small, camera bag stuffable soft boxes," he writes. "Throw in some gels, some interesting locations and some fun talent and it made for a wonderful couple of days on location."
  • Paul Melcher suggests The Solution to Deepfakes is "an indelible connection to its original creator so that we, as viewers, can be knowledgeable of his/her/its intentions."

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