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 Jim Kasson, Thomas Kretschmann, Matteo de Mayda, Caitie McCabe, Covid-19's effect on the business, layer styles tips, Harold Davis, Ming Thein, a color test and Vivid-Pix.

  • Harold Davis groups a few backlit flowers By Twos and Threes, wondering which set works better. Interesting to note that the background is not neutral.
  • Ming Thein's Patchwork Abstract collects the rare abstract image from numerous shoots into a single photo essay. "Today's set was a tricky one to curate and honestly tested the limits of my archival system," he writes.
  • The X-Rite Color Challenge and Hue Test tests whether you're among the one in 255 women or one in 12 men who have some form of color vision deficiency. We confess to scoring zero, just for the record. The trick to our perfect score was probably remember the color lessons we learned from Josef Albers: adjacent color affect what you're seeing. So move those boxes around a bit.
  • Vivid-Pix is offering a $10 discount through May 31 on either its Restore and Land & Sea Scuba color correction applications for $39.99.

More to come! Meanwhile, here's a look five years back. And please support our efforts...
