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 the Australian Open, plants at night, Shane Rocheleau, ImagePrint, Style brushes, shutter release apps and Picasso.

  • In Serves, Shadows and Selfies, Steven Bloor presents intriguing images from the Australian Open.
  • Grace Ebert features the Unearthly Plant Photos of Tom Leighton's series Variegation II. "After photographing the plants, Leighton digitally strips back their characteristic greenish hues, using dreamy fluorescent colors to represent the photosynthesis process," she writes.
  • Magali Duzant reviews Shane Rocheleau's Lakeside, a book that sees that town "as a stand-in for much of the country, where fear-mongering media outlets, the ruinous effects of capitalism, racist redlining and misinformation have led to closed communities filled with suspicion and anger." And yet, she writes, "Lakeside performs an impressive balancing act, juxtaposing beauty and ugliness, myth and reality."
  • In Introduction to ImagePrint, Kevin Raber explains why he has relied on John Pannozzo's tool and its paper profiles for 20 years. It's a 40-minute video presentation.
  • Derrick Story does some Fast Editing With Style Brushes in Capture One Pro. "Style Brushes are an often overlooked tool in Capture One Pro," he writes. "But they are very handy for quick edits on specific areas of the image such as sky and foreground."
  • In Get Your Free Camera Shutter Release, Scott Kelby points out that many recent cameras with built-in wireless connectivity have free apps that function as a shutter release.
  • In Picasso Friend's Photos Given to Swiss Museum, Daniel Boffey reports, "One hundred photographs chronicling the private world of Pablo Picasso up to and after his death in 1973 at the age of 91 have been donated to the Musée de l'Élysée in Switzerland." That's only a few of the 25,000 taken of Picasso by David Douglas Duncan, who used a custom-built Leica M3D camera with extremely quiet shutter to avoid disturbing Picasso.

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