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 31 young photographers, hypercolor landscapes, stitched sensors, Costco photo centers, the LensCulture Portrait Awards and Alice Rose George.

  • Val Tate reports the nonprofit design lab Amplifier and the J. Paul Getty Museum has announced the 31 winners of In Pursuit of___, a joint open call for photography from students ages 13 to 19. The winners "thoughtfully addressed themes of social tolerance, access to education, climate change, immigration, and endurance in the face of Covid-19," Tate writes.
  • Adobe shows How to Make a Hypercolor Landscape in Adobe Photoshop in seven steps.
  • Lloyd Chambers discusses Sensor Bifurcation, Stitched Sensors in sensors larger than APS-C. "The stitch line is always visible if you don't process it out; could be very subtle, but it's there," he quotes a reader researching the subject.
  • In an email to customers Costco announced it will be closing its Photo Centers in all its locations by Feb. 14, Jaron Schneider reports. "After careful consideration, we have determined the continued decline of prints no longer requires on-site photo printing," the email explains. Costco will continue to offer prints via its Web site.
  • LensCulture is Seeking New Visions in Portraiture. Deadline for entries to the eighth annual LensCulture Portrait Awards is Feb. 17.
  • We note the passing of photo editor and poet Alice Rose George at the age of 76. "She didn't just connect you," recalled Lisa Kereszi, who met George as a young photographer in 1997 and now teaches at Yale. "She cultivated you as you were figuring out who you were as a photographer."

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