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 the ocean, Brazilian youth, Martin Elkort, markup in Apple Photos, a Kelby invitation, product supply after the stock market plunge and Andrew Molitor.

  • Grace Ebert presents the Aerial Photographs of Vast Ocean Landscapes by Tobias Hägg. "I find pleasure in the most simple scenes," he says.
  • Emily Grundon showcases images of The Diversity of Youth Culture in Brazil by Sao-Paulo-based photographer Hick Duarte who blends "film, fashion, portraiture and documentary photography."
  • In the 1940s and 1950s, Martin Elkort wandered through New York City looking for the perfect picture. The 52:45 video An American Mirror explores his life and work.
  • How to Add Text to Photos on iPhone & iPad With Markup reveals the markup tool built into Apple Photos.
  • Scott Kelby invites you to Come With Me on a Journey About Your Photography that will be "a multi-week voyage of discovery that I think has the power to help propel your photography forward this year." Today's launch includes a simple assignment: "find 20 to 25 images of the exact type of photos you want to be making."
  • Kirk Tuck considers how The Stock Market Plunge will "have a negative effect on all those folks who like to buy stuff or need to buy necessities; like cameras and lenses." It would be smart to buy now, he suggests, because "when supplies on hand dry up, getting the next batch into the system might be dramatically delayed."
  • In The Percept, Andrew Molitor reflects on a central concept in Rudolf Arnheim's book Art and Visual Perception. The precept is "that which is perceived rather than merely seen," he writes before drawing out the implications for photographers who "strive to see the visual impression more than other people."

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