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 Monument Valley, Photo Wake-Up, shooting stock photography, Robin Wong, a new Free Transform preference and creating a double exposure. And happy Juneteeth!

  • Alan Taylor presents 20 photos in The Moods of Monument Valley. You've probably seen the sandstone formations -- but not like this.
  • Photo Wake-Up is "3D character animation from a single photo." Chung-Yi Weng, Brian Curless, Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman of the University of Washington developed a technique to "create a 3D animatable version of the subject, which can now walk towards the viewer."
  • "When I find myself with a bit of down time I shoot stock," writes Mat Hayward. "No one in my life is safe from my camera."
  • Robin Wong continues his exploration of Framing, Color and Simplicity in street shooting using an Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and M.Zuiko lenses 45mm f1.8 and 25mm f1.2 Pro.
  • Julieanne Kost explains the New Free Transform Preference in Photoshop that is included in yesterday's update. The new preference enables legacy behavior (Shift key constrains). She also includes several shortcuts and tips for transforming layers.
  • Graphic artist Erica Larson shows you How to Create a Double Exposure Effect in Adobe Photoshop. Her technique gives you a good deal more control over the image than in-camera double exposures, which some digital cameras can do.

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