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 Ruddy Roye, Maria Quigley, Bryan Coppede, mobile presets, five Lightroom tools, transparent backgrounds and Chris Gampat.

  • Voices of Change follows documentary photographer Ruddy Roye as he tells "stories of injustice and inequality through visual stories that show pride, resilience and unity."
  • Babushka, Svetlana and Me is a photo essay by Russian-born photographer Maria Quigley who grew up in Britain. The subjects are her grandmother, mother and herself. "I hope this depiction of the lives of three ordinary women will represent something universal about the bonds of love and history that connect generations of women around the world," she says.
  • Suzanne Sease highlights the work of Bryan Coppede who photographed Refoundry'a Hand in Hand project. The project "allows formerly incarcerated people to reclaim their identity and self-agency while embracing and being embraced by, the larger community." How? By painting their hand and imprinting it in another person's hand.
  • Julieanne Kost shows How to Create a Preset in Lightroom Mobile.
  • Jason Row lists Five Subtle Tools You Should Learn in Lightroom. Skip "subtle," they're standard operating procedure around here.
  • Hillary Grigonis explains How to Make a Background Transparent in Photoshop. Both the easy way and, when that doesn't work, the hard way.
  • Chris Gampat has published The Phoblographer's Official Statement on Racism, BLM and the Industry. "The Phoblographer will continue its mission of inclusiveness and diversity that it has championed for years. And if you don't like it, that's fine," writes the Phoblographer founder and self-described son of an immigrant.

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