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 Latin American photography, the ticker-tape parade, Sinziana Velicescu, Susan Wright, underwater photography, a Nikon D700, color management and preserving laptop stickers.

  • The Guardian has published a selection of Award-Winning Latin American Photography from the Latin American Foto festival at the Bronx Documentary Center.
  • Alan Taylor presents 28 Photos of the 2019 Women's World Cup Champions Victory Ticker-Tape Parade. There was champagne for the champs as they passed by construction workers waving American flags and young fans with flags drawn on their faces.
  • Los Angeles photographer Sinziana Velicescu is attracted to Trees Growing in Unusual Places. "There is a disturbing quality to the photographs though, as if the plants are asking for help or to be moved from their locations," she says.
  • Susan Wright's (perspective corrected) photos grace Laura Rysman's 36 Hours in Naples, Italy. Frankly, we just looked at the pictures, which include a stunning interior of the cathedral and a tempting olive and anchovy pizza.
  • Brett Stanley discusses the unique issues involved in Underwater Photography like communicating with your model and the effect on artificial lighting. And the photos aren't bad either.
  • In Backyard Photography With a Nikon D700 and 100mm Series E Lens, Derrick Story explains he got the D700 to complement his 35mm film Nikon shots using the same lens, presumably for the Exif data. "You might be amused that I still shoot with a camera of this era. But all of these devices are like paint brushes to me, each with their own characteristic," he adds.
  • The Color Management discussion on Macintouch includes excellent tidbits from Datacolor's David Miller, photographer Tracy Valleau and Thom Hogan covering a wide range of topics from creating profiles to wide gamut monitors and much in between.
  • Graham Stevens has a clever idea for Preserving Laptop Stickers on MacBooks. He first applies color-matched vehicle wrapping to the laptop and then the stickers. The wrapping can subsequently be removed, mounted and framed as an ode to another era.

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