Blog posts from others that you should not miss...
The first one comes from Scott Kelby, Scott has shoot all over the world, done so many things, and has forgotten more about Photoshop and Lightroom than I will ever know. He is not a person who is easily impressed, so you will want to read what he thinks is the best posts about photography this year, maybe one of the best ever!
Next up is David Hobby of Strobist fame. I owe much of what I know about lighting a portrait with Speedlight's, heck, what I know about Speedlight's in general from what he has written on his blog and all the the lighting information he has been able to stuff into his educational DVD's. On Monday he took us all along one of his portrait sessions and he doesn't leave anything out. Great learning experience. Be sure to check it out.
DIY photography has three really interesting posts this week, "how to shoot a water splash" and for you video folks "the easiest DIY slider" and a "DIY turntable for videos".
Neil van Niekerk gives a great demonstration on how a whiff of off camera fill light can make a dramatic difference when shooting an outdoor engagement session. Lots of information regarding gear, settings, and details on how it's done.
Enjoy, and see you next week.
