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 Misan Harriman, Robert Claus, Art Photography awards, Roger Cicala interviewed, deleting images, the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, Same Energy and a ColorReader EZ discount.

  • People in Focus presents Misan Harriman's images of the Black Lives Matter movement in London. "These protests showed me the hope and solidarity of London in ways I never dreamed I would see. We have a long way to go, but we now have a collective tribe of good people who will carve out a more inclusive future for us all," he says.
  • In Robert Claus Is Inspired by Old Paintings, Chris Gampat interviews the photographer who wanted to be a painter as a kid. "I want to make compelling images, to take an ordinary object, then transpose it into an extraordinary visual context and thereby reveal hidden beauty," he says.
  • The LensCulture Art Photography awards "recognize and reward visionary artists who are using photographic images and processes as powerful tools for personal expression." Here's this year's 41 winners from 17 countries.
  • LensRentals interviews its own Roger Cicala about Lenses, Sensor Cleaning and Sharpness Testing.
  • Thom Hogan describes five approaches to Deleting Images. "Maybe you've got it just right. Maybe you should change. But make sure you know what you're doing and why. Once those pixels are gone, they're gone," he writes.
  • Lloyd Chambers praises the discounted Olympus E-M1 Mark II as an "inexpensive camera for wildlife."
  • Same Energy is a Web-based visual search engine in beta designed by Jacob Jackson to retrieve images that capture "the artistic style and overall mood of an image, not just the objects in it."
  • You can get Datacolor's ColorReader EZ for $39 through the end of the month when you use the code 20OFF at checkout.

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