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 Bruce Haley, Jakob Schnetz, Johan Peijnenburg, ACR's new Compact mode, the KUVRD Universal Lens Hood, Framen and a BorrowLenses discount.

  • The photographs in Home Fires, Volume I: The Past were taken during a crippling drought in California by Bruce Haley, recipient of the Robert Capa Gold Medal. These image of the agriculture-rich San Joaquin Valley recall the place he spent his childhood.
  • In A Reindeer and a Burning Oil Can, Jakob Schnetz stages Western cliches about Russia.
  • Johan Peijnenburg responds to Mike Johnston's Random Excellence piece citing his image Stepping Stones, Lake Geneva and the Alps. And that's just the beginning of the story.
  • This Cool Little Camera Raw Feature Snuck by Most Folks, writes Scott Kelby. It's Compact mode that collapses every panel but the active one in Adobe Camera Raw. And much appreciated by those of us working on 13-inch screens.
  • Chris Gampat thinks the KUVRD Universal Lens Hood is A Great Idea, but It's Not for Everyone. At least not for anyone with a non-internal zoom mechanism.
  • In From Photo Frame to Media Empire? Hans Hartman explores Axel Springer's acquisition of the majority of Framen's stock. Framen, he writes, may be more of "an online advertising platform that challenges the advertising hegemony of Facebook" than the digital frame company is started out as.
  • BorrowLenses is offering a $30 discount or 15 percent off rentals arriving by Jan. 29 (whichever saves you more) when you use the code SAVE2021 at checkout.

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