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 Jess Gough, Live Mode, Creative Cloud updates, Polaroid x Keith Haring, Apple's World Wide Developers Conference and Fujifilm.

  • Stephanie Wade features The Earth's Striking Volcanic Landscapes captured by London-based photographer Jess Gough. "I was drawn to the elemental features of these landscapes as well as their movements and cyclical processes and I became particularly drawn to the expressiveness and volatility of volcanic areas -- the constant hissing, spewing, crackling, shifting," she says.
  • In Quickfire iPhone Shot -- Live Mode to the Rescue, Dave Williams laments his slow reaction to a pair of fox cubs running away from him. "Because I'd taken the shot with Live Mode active I could check through the sequence of frames that had been captured," he writes. And, wouldn't you know, there was one of a cub looking directly at him.
  • Julieanne Kost covers the June update of Lightroom Classic 10.3, including M1 support, 70 new premium presets, Super Resolution, Live View in tethered captures for Nikon cameras and performance enhancements. Thom Hogan lists all the photo-centric Creative Cloud Updates.
  • The $119.99 Polaroid x Keith Haring instant analog camera and $17.99 i-Type instant film are available now. "Inspired by a shared spirit of democratic creativity, the collection honors Keith Haring's trailblazing spirit by making his art accessible to everyone," the company said.
  • At Apple's World Wide Developers Conference yesterday the company revealed its upcoming operating system software for its phones, tablets and computers. You can get a look at the new features on the preview pages for iOS 15, iPadOS 15, and macOS Monterey. Howard Oakley lists which Macs will run Monterey.
  • Robert Scammell reports Fujifilm Refuses to Pay Ransomware Demand, relying on its backups instead. It is gradually restoring service.

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