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 Istvan Kerekes, Nina Weinberg Doran, a Fujifilm X-Pro3, silhouettes and a 30-year family portrait.

  • Grace Ebert presents Hungarian photographer Istvan Kerekes's monochromatic images of Transylvanian Shepherds and Their Herds. "They're powerful and Raw, showing the tender embrace of a weathered man as he cradles a lamb in his coat or the way a child wraps one of the animals around her neck," she writes.
  • Portrait of Curious Girl by Nina Weinberg Doran has won the 4th edition of Feature Shoot's Global Billboard Contest. The girl in the photo was a house who discovered a vintage magnifying glass "and began to study it and figure out how it worked."
  • Kevin Raber sheds no discernible tear Saying Goodbye to My Fuji X-Pro3. "I really tried to like the X-Pro3, but I got to a point where I had to stop trying to convince myself it was cool and not awkward," he writes.
  • Terri Stone (inspired by Russell Brown) shows how to Make a Simple Yet Sophisticated Silhouette in Adobe Photoshop in just four steps that feel like two.
  • In One Family, 30 Years, 30 Photographs, Tom Lamont features Zed Nelson's three-decade portrait of Sue and Frank's journey from new parents to grandparents. "They have all wondered, occasionally, how this project might end," he writes.

Oh, one more thing. If you're puzzled about shooting fireworks, we covered the subject pretty thoroughly in 2015. But, wait, there's more to come today! Meanwhile, here's a look back. And please support our efforts...
