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 women's sport, Bruno Ceschel, an old portrait, Avalanche, an iPhone LED flash and New Year's resolutions.

  • In Powerful Photographs Perfectly Illustrate Rise of Women's Sport, Suzanne Wrack shows parity in how male and female athletes are covered. As well as camaraderie, friendship and togetherness not as evident among the men.
  • Bruno Ceschel proposes his nominations for the Best of 2019 for a series the British Journal of Photograph will continue through January.
  • Kirk Tuck reveals what drives his search for The Right Digital Camera and Lens. He checks an old portrait. "The image is a look that I liked (and still like) very much," he writes. "A long, fast lens on a big chunk of film."
  • Cyme's Avalanche is an Ai-powered, macOS Mojave tool to migrate your Aperture libraries to Lightroom "without losing any data and while preserving all your edits." And you don't have to launch Aperture to do the conversion. Cyme has promised other source and destination conversions based on the Avalanche engine.
  • Anker is reportedly about to launch a $49.99 iPhone LED flash that uses the Lightning port and is certified in Appleā€™s Made-for-iPhone licensing program, itself a first. The flash is four times as bright with twice the range as the built-in flash and will provide 10,000 shots per charge. It will include a detachable defuser when it ships next month.
  • Sheen Watkins has already drawn up his New Year's Resolutions, in case you need a few more.

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