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 Gregg Segal, good photographs, software, cheap lights, Capture One, Reichmann book, deals and Pier 24.

  • In Portraits of Venezuelan Families Reframe the Harrowing Journey of Immigrants, Grace Ebert presents a few of Gregg Segal's images showing "how little the people have."
  • "The main blindness in modern amateur enthusiast photography as it is expressed and discussed online, in my opinion, is the conflation of 'image quality' with good photographs," Mike Johnston writes in Bazooka Joe.
  • There's a software equivalent of this, too. Terry Gipson pinpoints it in Creating Photographic Art Has Never Been Easier. "The only bit of creativity seems to be trying out a new device or piece of software without any concern for one's art," he writes. "The art produced becomes stale, stagnant and mundane. It shows the progression of technology and not the artist's vision."
  • Kirk Tuck names his Favorite Cheap Lights of the year. Two from last year and one from this one (already). No point waiting for Godox, he loves them.
  • Lloyd Chambers graphs Capture One's CPU Core Utilization. Only one core is used for imports and preview generation, he writes. And you might want a faster GPU than the base offerings, too.
  • Andrew Molitor suggests the Reichmann 20 Year Retrospective Book might be available for shipping costs "if you wanted a couple copies (or 1100 copies) for a good cause."
  • In Cheap Photo, the Phoblographer lists some current discounts on everything from computers to presets.
  • Pier 24 has published Looking Back, a catalog of the first of two consecutive exhibitions that Pier 24 Photography will present on its 10th anniversary with works by Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Richard Avedon, Dorothea Lange and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

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