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 Colors, wildlife, Ria Mort, gear, lenses, color editing, formats, Lensbaby and the Stahl House.

  • AAP Magazine has announced the winners of its Colors photo contest.
  • In Spectacular Wildlife Visiting a Wintertime Food Source, Grace Ebert features images captured by Carla Rhodes outside her home in the Catskills of New York. Her project Beneath the Bird Feeder documents the pearlescent wings of a tufted titmouse or the beady eye of North America‚Äôs only venomous mammal, the short-tailed shrew as they forage in the snow.
  • Devid Gualandris presents the "dreamlike" photographs of Ria Mort that exude Raw, Intimate Emotion. "The Greek conceptual and fashion photographer invites viewers to slow down and take the time to savor the poetry of light, shapes and emotion that defines her image-making," he writes.
  • In Photo Gear Rodeo: 100S, R3, and Z9, Oh My!, the LensRental gang looks at Fujifilm, Canon and Nikon gear starting with lenses and moving on to camera bodies.
  • In Gap, Adjoin, or Overlap?, Thom Hogan suggests strategies for building out your lens collection. "From time to time it makes sense to go back and rationalize your lens closet," he writes.
  • Jonathan Bertin shows how to Heighten a Mood in Lightroom in this three-minute video. No tricks, just a nice demonstration of using the basic tools.
  • Mike Johnston considers An Ideal Format and, by now, has posted over 50 comments contributing to the discussion.
  • Chris Gampat sings the praises of Lensbaby's creative options in Five Fun Lenses for Creative Photographers.
  • The Stahl House, notably captured by photographer Julius Shulman, is the subject of Inside LA's Most Iconic Modernist Home, Case Study House #22. In this episode, Bruce Stahl and Shari Stahl Gronwald and writer Kim Cross discuss the story of how Case Study House #22 came to be and share personal stories about what it was like to grow up and live in the home, from roller skating across the concrete floors to diving off the roof into the pool.

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