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 galleries in the metaverse, firsts, quantum entanglement, two free Lightroom presets, Bria and RRS Plate for the Nikon Z 9.

  • Museums, Galleries and Alternative Spaces in the Metaverse explores alterantives to museums and galleries for exhibition. By "metaverse" the unnamed author refers to "an immersive 3D virtual world." Some of which are devoted to the display of NFTs.
  • 50+ Famous First Photographs collects the "first photograph of" one thing or another. It could be an endlist list, of course. There's a first (photograph) for everything.
  • In Quantum Entanglement, Harold Davis presents a "series of images began as several frames photographed down on a light box from the inside of a parfait glass."
  • Thais Varela contributes two free Lightroom presets to Bring Flowers Into Focus. One is for artificial light, the other for natural light, which about covers it.
  • In 10 Questions to a Founder: Bria, Paul Melcher interviews Bria Co-founder and CTO Yair Adato. "Bria's vision is to enable anyone to instantly create any visual, still or video, at scale -- and without the need for a camera or Photoshop," Adata says. "From thoughts to visuals in a few seconds." Bria generates images but it doesn't edit them, he notes. The Web app is free for anyone to use at the moment.
  • Jim Kasson received his RRS Plate for the Nikon Z 9 and compares it to the SmallRig equivalent.

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