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 Matthieu Litt, Raul Arantes, the LumoPro LP180, flash-free school portraits, View-Master reels, Julieanne Kost, gifts and the Macintosh.

  • Horsehead Nebula by Belgium-based photographer Matthieu Litt is a "mix of quiet images and quick-witted observations of former Soviet territories in Central Asia, where the exact location is never formally revealed."
  • In Life Inside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, Ellyn Kail highlights the images Raul Arantes took there in 2014, which was almost 30 years after the nuclear disaster.
  • Strobist David Hobby raises a glass to toast The LumoPro LP180 [2013-2020]. "May ours work forever and may they not get too expensive on eBay," he writes.
  • In OMG Gear!, Andrew Molitor devises a setup for school portraits that does not use flash, which disturbs some of the special needs kids.
  • Cynthia Boylan explains how to Create Your Own View-Master Reels With Image3D. A single reel is $23.95 and you can get a viewer with it for $29.95 on the Image3D Web site. Here's the skinny:
  • Congratulations to Julieanne Kost for being awarded the Warren Motts International Service Award from the Professional Photographers of America. The award is presented to "individuals who have made major contributions in promoting and developing professional photography on an international level." Well earned.
  • Kent DuFault lists The Best Gifts for Photographers for 2020 in three price brackets.
  • The Macintosh was introduced 36 years ago today. We still have the original press kit in a plastic box which included a T-shirt.

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