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 Michael Jang, Montreal, medical debt collectors, two photo books, four editing tools, Photoshop for iPad and the ideal photography teacher.

  • In Who Is Michael Jang?, Allie Haeusslein introduces the street photographer whose first major retrospective, curated by SFMOMA's revered Sandra Phillips, is now showing his images of the past 40 years. He threw away all but 250 rolls of film from those years. "As Sandy has been going through my work it's made me realize how much more this all could have been," he confesses.
  • Kirk Tuck shares more of his shots from Montreal. The basilica interior was a special treat. " I liked the shots I got from the very earnest Pentax. I liked Belinda's perfectly composed shots from her little Canon G15 better. But I think, technically, the best shots came from ... my iPhone XR," he writes.
  • Edmund Fountain illustrates Lizzie Presser's story When Medical Debt Collectors Decide Who Gets Arrested.
  • Jonathan Blaustein recommends two photo books on The Early '70s, one about California and the other about Florida.
  • Four Photo Editing Tools That Will Help You Edit Images Like a Pro list four hardware devices that include a pressure-sensitive pen, dedicated keyboard, large monitor and colorimeter. Got those?
  • Mark Gurman and Nico grant report Photoshop for iPad Nearing Launch With Some Key Features Missing. Early testers say "it feels like a beefed-up cloud-based version of their existing iPad apps and not 'real Photoshop' as advertised."
  • James Little suggests Why a Digital Camera Is the Ideal Photography Teacher. "The immediate feedback you get with a digital camera ultimately means that you understand the fundamentals of photography more quickly and more clearly," he writes.

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