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 AP photographers, Ireland, the Meili Mountain Range, a lost photo, photobooks, gifting a frame, Adobe Camera Raw, social media, lighting portraits, HDMI 2.1 and an industry review.

  • A World Ablaze showcases the work of AP photographers in 2021. "There were moments of hope," the AP notes in the introduction.
  • The Guardian presents a collection of images illustrating Photography in Ireland From 1839 to Now. In Our Own Image, curated by Gallery of Photography Ireland in partnership with Dublin Castle/OPW, is at The Printworks, Dublin Castle until Feb. 6.
  • Grace Ebert features the Meili Mountain Range snow caps captured by Shenzhen-based photographer Rainlook "when the first break of sunlight shines on the snow-streaked terrain."
  • In Photo From Kentucky Tornado-Damaged Home Lands Almost 130 Miles Away, social media helps reunite the owner with a treasured memory.
  • LensCulture presents its Favorite Photobooks of 2021. "Amidst the isolation and uncertainty of the past years, photobooks have been especially bright sparks for connection, bringing readers and visual storytellers into an intimate interaction that transcends time and space," the editors say.
  • Derrick Story suggests A Blank Picture Frame might be "the ultimate holiday gift." How?

On a fine art card, write a note that will accompany the frame. It can be something like: "This frame can hold any picture that you want. It can be a group shot of you with your children, a portrait of you and your pet companion or a revitalized old family picture that you always wanted to hang on the wall. You tell me what you want in that frame and I will make it happen for you."

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