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 Ryan Debolski, birds, Snap It, Sharpen AI and a scammer shamed.

  • In The Lonely World of Oman's Migrant Workers, Devid Gualandris presents images from American photographer Ryan Debolski's 2020 book project LIKE, "a multilayered photographic investigation of the brittle human condition of migrant laborers in the Gulf region."
  • Nick Dale explains How I Photograph Birds. He covers locations, cameras (full frame), lenses, settings (auto ISO, manual everything else), portraits, birds in flight, technique and post processing, illustrating the piece (which can be listened to instead of read if you are so reclined) with his own work, captioned with camera settings.
  • Snap It is a subscription service that delivers a disposable camera with flash and film for 27 photos. Free developing is included in some plans with a download link for the 4500x3000-pixel images sent to your phone. Plans range from $9.99 to $34.99 a month.
  • Topaz Labs has updated Sharpen AI with a new Large Blur AI model to "better handle more severe motion blur and focus issues while keeping your image looking natural." Through April 13, it's $59.99, a savings of $20.
  • Mike Johnston got an Official Check to pay for the iMac he's selling. He wised up to the scam before any damage was done. But revenge was not on his mind when he took it a step further.

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