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 Trailblazers of Light, Daniel Freeman, simulated hand coloring, frequency separation, Vegas fashion shoot, online framing, eye disease simulator and Unsplash.

  • In These Are the Pioneering Women of Photojournalism, CNN explores Yunghi Kim's Trailblazers of Light, which was "developed to acknowledge the accomplishments of women photojournalists during the film era."
  • Daniel Freeman traveled over 25,000 miles Photographing the 'Endless Diversity' of America by Streetlight. "The night offers a calm, uninterrupted contemplation of these places, a slowing of time that cannot be found during the busyness of the daylight hours," he says.
  • In Lightroom Mobile Hand Coloring, Julianne Kost paints an image with an adjustment brush to emulate those old Marshall colors.
  • Don Nelson shows How to Retouch Photos Using the Power of Frequency Separation. The technique divides an image into two layers, "one layer being the high frequency information, which contains all the detail in your photograph and the other being the low frequency layer which contains all the tonal and color information." So you can protect one from the other.
  • Joe McNally remembers shooting Fashion on the Vegas Highway. "This was a fun afternoon, shooting with Gitzo, strapping tripod and camera and clamps to the trunk top of a car and spinning it out on the highways," he writes.
  • Online framing company Frame It Easy has launched a new Shopify app to print, mount, frame and ship your photos.
  • To raise awareness about eye disorders, Lenstore's interactive tool lets you see what some familiar sights look like to people with glaucoma, tunnel vision, macular degeneration, cataracts and more. The tool uses 360° images of seven sites in Paris, Venice, London, Hong Kong, Dubai, New York and Sydney.
  • In Unsplash Is Being Acquired by Getty Images, Unsplash CEO Mikael Cho writes, "The reason I'm excited about this acquisition is because it's not goodbye, it's about acceleration." Accelerating Unsplash for Brands and Unsplash Hire, specifically. According to the FAQ, "Unsplash will continue operating as we have been with the same team, the same site, the same community. Unsplash images will continue to be free."

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