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 Noa Avishag Schnall, Frank Horvat, León, color management tips, Pit Magazine, camera settings, creativity, Webb Space Telescope images and DMCA upload filters.

  • In A Woman Alone in Oman: Three Weeks Along the Arabian Coast (gift link), Noa Avishag Schnall travels 2,600 miles along the Yemeni border to the Strait of Hormuz. "I could barely tell where the salt ended and the sky began," she sets the stage.
  • How Frank Horvat Changed Fashion Photography features images from a new exhibition at Photo London 2022 curated by Horvat's daughter Fiammetta Horvat. Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa influenced his naturalistic style which took models out of the studio to pose in public.
  • In Putting the Lion in León, Harold Davis captures a "beloved-by-children statue of a lion climbing out of a storm drain in León's central square."
  • Julieanne Kost lists Five Quick Color Management Tips in Photoshop that deal with "with document profiles, color space mismatch warnings, untagged document warnings and soft proofing."
  • Heidi Volpe interviews Holly Cratford about Pit Magazine, illustrating the piece with Mr. Potato Head cover shots.
  • Thom Hogan considers the difference between Settings Versus Seeing. "I'm of the strong opinion that knowing what a camera's settings were don't help you much, if at al," he writes. "In the field at workshops, I teach not apertures and shutter speeds -- though we do discuss them on occasion -- but finding the thing that you wish to photograph, the thing you want to disclose to others"
  • Dave Williams shares some thoughts on The Roots of Creativity while he visits Austin, Tex. "The creativity of the city around me is inspiring the creativity inside of me and I'm getting much more done in this environment," he writes.
  • NASA Releases Ridiculously Sharp Webb Space Telescope Images, Isaac Schultz reports. "This is an extraordinary milestone for humanity," said Michael McElwain, a Webb observatory project scientist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center.
  • Ernesto Van der Sar reports the U.S. Copyright Office Seeks Input on Mandatory DMCA 'Upload Filters'. "As things stand, online services are allowed to implement their own upload filters, which many do," he writes. "Scanning uploads for potentially copyright-infringing content isn't mandatory but that could change in the future."

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