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 Gordon Parks, Tara Wray, Linda Brownlee, 'A Lightroom Minute', LaCie's BOSS drive, a big photo duffel and Fujifilm X Webcam.

  • A Portrait of American Crime by Gordon Parks presents a selection of the photographer's color images from The Atmosphere of Crime, a new book being published by Steidl. Parks and a reporter took a six-week trip in 1957 to New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles for the piece that ran in Life magazine.
  • In Scenes of Isolation Amid Pandemic in the Vermont Countryside, photographer Tara Wray talked to the elderly in her Vermont community as she took safe portraits of them. "People are much more talkative lately," one of them tells her.
  • Stephanie Wade showcases The Beauty in People and Places captured by Irish photographer Linda Brownlee. "There is an undeniable beauty to her imagery, but also a candid honesty and sense of compassion -- whether photographing toddlers peering out the window from behind sheer curtains or capturing close ups of textured skin and scruffy clothes, Brownlee's eye remains inquisitive and unjudging," she writes.
  • Adobe's Katrin Eismann has launched In A Lightroom Minute, a new series of tips about Lightroom. Adobe plans to publish a new, minute-long guide in the series each week, including the most recent episode, How to Utilize Presets in Lightroom, with Pei Ketron:
  • Ryan Hill reviews the LaCie Rugged BOSS Drive, a 1-TB SSD with an internal battery and a CPU for laptop-free memory card backups. But he really liked using it in the field with an iPad.
  • Think Tank Photo is giving away its $200 Freeway Longhaul Carryall Duffel to five lucky winners. The duffel is available in 50- and 75-liter sizes to carry everything you need in a highly durable bag with customizable dividers built to withstand rigorous use.
  • Fujifilm has released Fujifilm X Webcam for Windows to turn X Series and GFX System digital cameras into webcams.

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