This time we look at the Wise Photo Projec, sea shells, the Pandemic Effect, Fujifilm GF long primes, Apple Time Capsule warning, Nik Collection discount and Portraits Project submissions.

  • Kenneth Wajda started The Wise Photo Project in 2015 to create photographic portraits of seniors that otherwise would not exist. "These legacy photographic portraits are created for people I don't know and some who I will never meet -- the great-grandchildren and other family members in the future," he writes.
  • Jasenka Grujin presents 21 Amazing Photos of Shells to shift your summer into a higher gear.
  • Mike Johnston asked, Did the Pandemic Affect Your Photography? The results are in. "I am a believer that the muse exists, but she has to find you working," one reader sums it up.

  • DxO has extended its 30 percent discount on Nik Collection through July 31 after releasing v4.1 on Tuesday with a new rendering engine optimized for Nik Viveza and Nik Silver Efex. We've just installed the update and noticed the difference on the first image we processed.
