Catching Up On Some Reading

September 14, 2010
Sun Flare!

Have I posted this before? I just can't remember!

My work project is finally done! I will soon post the July and August from the Monthly Themes Group on flickr, but also wanted to remind you guys that September’s theme is Shoes!

Since I’ve been too busy to post lately, I’ve also been too busy to read as much as I usually do. I’ve been trying to catch up in the past few days (though, there’s no way I can catch up with everything I typically read), and I thought I’d share some of my favorite recent posts from other photography sites with you:

  • If you’re still trying to decide whether to shoot in RAW or not, check out this post from Ronan Palliser that might convince you to try it!
  • Still from Ronan, it’s pretty impressive that he was able to take a photo of a flash just the flash itself as the only light source. Inspiring!
  • I feel like I post a lot of links to posts about composition, but I can’t help it, I just find composition rules inspiring, so check out these 5 elements to compose great photos. Oddly enough, I read another article in my massive catch-up that had the exact same title (some overlap, but they’re not all the same 5 tips).
  • Speaking of 5 tips, here are some for adding flavor to your landscape photography.
  • Here’s some tips for emphasizing the subject of your photo.
  • If you’re really looking for something to read, check out these 100 helpful photography tutorials. I fully admit to not reading them all.
  • I just recently bought a polarizing filter (so recent that it hasn’t even been delivered yet), so I found the timing of this introduction to them quite convenient!
  • The two most common questions I get asked by people who just bought their first DSLR are “What camera bag should I buy?” and “what is the first lens I should buy?”. I have a hard time answering the first one (because I think it depends on the purpose of the bag), but the lens one is always easy – a 50mm prime. And if you don’t already have one, perhaps you should check out this introduction to the wonderful world of the 50mm prime.
  • PetaPixel has created something pretty awesome – a list of your rights as a photographer printed on a gray card set.
  • Ever wonder how people get those perfect images of things falling into water? Well, now you can find out!
  • It was really nice to see a post-processing tutorial on PetaPixel that featured Gimp! Check out how to get a warm cross-processed look!
  • My favorite type of photography is probably landscape. If you feel the same way, you might want to check out landscape photography for the serious amateur.
  • I’ve never attempted taking photos at a concert, but I still found these concert photography lessons quite interesting!

I will be back soon with those July and August photos!
