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 Martin Herrera Soler, Harold Davis, the Xencelabs tablet, textures, perfection and using two printers.

  • NĂ³made is a series of urban images Martin Herrera Soler made "to ponder about my identity and sense (or lack) of belonging."
  • Harold Davis looks Through a Glass Lightly, photographing through glass on a light box. In addition to the featured image, he also links to his Flickr album of similar shots.
  • In Xencelabs Digital Tablet Hands On, Kevin Raber claims "this one changes everything." He likes the design, build and performance, showing his custom settings and providing a video deep dive as well. "I know a few friends who have put their Wacoms on the shelf and made a switch to Xencelabs," he writes. He doesn't mention if he got the new smaller tablet or the larger one but we're guessing it was the larger one.
  • Dahlia Ambrose collected 21 Photos of Textures in Landscapes that "add drama and depth." We're a sucker for rock formations, especially the chert on Twin Peaks.
  • Kirk Tuck was lens shopping before he began Remembering a Time Before Perfection. He found an old photo that he likes but that was unsharp. It could not be improved, he thought, not even by decades of experience and a sharper optic.
  • In How I Use Two Printers to Save Money, Derrick Story explains how he begins with a small print on a Canon MG6821 using inexpensive inks before moving up to his Canon Pro 100 using Canon ink for large prints. "Using this system has extended the life of my expensive Canon print cartridges, while still providing the quality I want for the final output," he says.

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