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 Denelle and Tom Ellis, Ming Thein, a pink Manta Ray, March, cloudy weather, film cameras and student Creative Cloud licenses.

  • In Hi, Darling, I'm Home!, the Guardian presents the photos of Denelle and Tom Ellis, a husband-and-wife photography team who "decided to recreate the '70s photo album to examine coupledom today."
  • Ming Thein's photo essay Homogeneity looks at buildings that are mirrors of mirrors.
  • Grace Ebert present Australia-based photographer Kristian Laine's images of The World's Only Known Pink Manta Ray. "I had no idea there were pink mantas in the world, so I was confused and thought my strobes were broken or doing something weird," Laine said. Nope, it's a genuine genetic mutation (most likely).
  • With all events cancelled, Kirk Tuck declares March a Non-Work Month. Bonus: another red chair image.
  • Federico Alegria shares some Tips for Cloudy Weather Photography. "Think of an overcast day as a huge soft-box that dims light down during every step you make," he writes.
  • Thinking About Spending a Stack of Cash on a Film Camera? Hamish Gill has some advice for you. The price of used gear has gone up and it isn't all functional (or repairable). "My goal is simply to encourage a bit of realistic thinking," he writes.
  • Adobe Enables Distance Learning Globally for Schools Impacted by Covid-19. That includes free Creative Cloud apps through May 31 for students who usually use the apps in on-campus labs but are now studying at home.

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