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 Yan Morvan, Helene Binet, Sony dust problems, social photography, the mirrorless market, a VR Mona Lisa and free Photoshop brushes.

  • Photojournalist Yan Morvan remembers Bangkok at the beginning of the eighties in a photo book titled BKK. But he'd rather not. "I never returned and I don't ever want to go back to Bangkok," he says. "At the time it smelled of death."
  • In Limitations Are Stimulation for Creativity, Swiss-French photographer Helene Binet talks shop in the final month of her current London exhibition.
  • Lloyd Chambers reports Horrible Dust Problems with the Sony A7R IV, confirmed by several readers who share their tips for sensor cleaning in the comments.
  • Dave Williams encourages Social Photography with four helpful suggestions. "Having a social angle allows us not only to network and to make and maintain relationships, but also to share experiences and ideas and to challenge ourselves and our skills," he writes.
  • In Where Are We? Thom Hogan predicts mirrorless camera announcements before year's end.
  • The Louvre Museum has released Mona Lisa: Beyond the Glass, its first public virtual reality experience.
  • Jessica Johnson of Creators Couture took advantage of Photoshop's Pattern Stamp tool to turn a photo into Impressionist-like artwork with these Free Photoshop Brushes. Grab a brush, start painting and watch the magic unfold.

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