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 gardens, panos, newcomers, Francesca Woodman, The Group, custom Raw defaults, depth and more answers.

  • The winners of the International Garden Photographer of the Year's Competition 13 have been announced. Albert Ceolan was the overall winner for The Vaia Storm but there are nine categories, four projects and seven special awards winners in the competition.
  • The Epson International Pano Awards have also been announced. Again in several categories with multiple citations. But what do you expect when 1,258 photographers from 72 countries submit 4,913 entries?
  • One more. LensCulture has announced its Exposure Awards 2020. There are 39 winners, special jurors’ picks and finalists from among "many hundreds of amazing entries from over 140 countries."
  • In A Portrait of Francesca Woodman Through the Photographs She Left Behind, Miss Rosen reviews the book Francesca Woodman: Portrait of a Reputation and the exhibition of the same name in Denver.
  • Heidi Volpe interviews The Group, "a diverse group of photographers" who meet with agencies where "solo shooters might have more difficulty securing a show." Clever approach.
  • Julieanne Kost explains How to Create Custom Raw Defaults in Adobe Camera Raw (v12.2). That's a new feature in today's Adobe updates.
  • In Add Dimension -- Five Tips, Dave Williams takes on the subject of depth. "Considering a foreground, middle ground and background is the simplest way to bring the third dimension to life, but there are some techniques that can help us do this," he writes. And those techniques are old friends we're sure you'll recognize.
  • Ming Thein has posted the third part of his 28 January Q&A Answers. In which he reveals Robin Wong is focusing on video content these days. Alas.

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