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 group photography, perspective, banding in the GFX 100, fighting ransomware and Keyboard Maestro 9.

  • In Deconstructing the Visual Language of Group Photography, Miss Rosen tours Among Others: Photography and the Group, a group show at the Morgan featuring the work of Amy Arbus, Eve Arnold, Robert Frank, Peter Hujar, Danny Lyon, Art Kane, Bob Adelman and August Sander.
  • In Perspective Goes Out the Window, Laura Staugaitis highlights the amusing animation of Dirk Koy "that upend viewers' expectations of focus and perspective." Fun.
  • Jim Kasson explores PDAF Banding in GFX 100 In-Camera JPEGs. "The in-camera JPEG crushes the blacks so hard that the banding is less apparent. It also employs heavier noise reduction," he writes.
  • No More Ransom provides tools to combat ransomware threats. But you don't have to wait until you're attacked. The site also provides advice about backup and security software to defend against an attack in the first place.
  • Keyboard Maestro 9 has been released with a new OCR Image action that uses the Tesseract OCR engine to extract text from an image. The full list of changes is here.

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