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 Daria Fedorova, Charlie Dunton, Alla Chiara Luzitelli, a Fujifilm X100V on Vivid, Paul Rubner and cleaning a lens.

  • Grace Ebert features the Manufactured Objects, Slime Molds and Spores that Daria Fedorova shoots as they grow into "unnaturally striking compositions." Fedorova laces petri dishes with various bacteria and other organisms before adding things like fluffy balls, sugars and sprinkles to the dish. A few weeks later, she takes a picture.
  • Mike Johnston explores Charlie Dunton's Picture: Seize the Day after Dunton tells the story behind the image. And it's a lovely story all by itself.
  • Alla Chiara Luzitelli shows how to Add Light Rays to Photos using Photoshop and After Effects in a 3:43 video.
  • If you were worried about Kirk Tuck retiring, today's post will reassure you. He put his Fujifilm X100V On Autopilot to take a few shots of Austin because "when the going gets tough the tough switch to 'Vivid' and run with it," he writes.
  • In As You Press the Shutter, Paul Rubner offers some comments "on the thought process" behind deciding what you shoot. His theory is "that photography can be thought of as a kind of big Rorschach experiment in which you, the photographer, react to what you have decided to photograph and which, in turn, influences what you include in the frame, what you exclude from the frame, the chosen angle of view, what you put in the foreground, middle ground and/or background and a myriad of other variables." How could it be otherwise?
  • The Phoblographer lists the advice from 15 experts on How to Clean Camera Lenses to rebut YouTube influencers suggesting the use of hydrogen peroxide. Nikon's advice spells out Chuck Westfall's indisputable recommendation.

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