It is time again for another hodgepodge of resource, gathered from the far reaches of the cyber galaxy.
First, in the interest of keeping as many photographers from bankruptcy and therefore living the dream as long as possible – check out Freelance Switch’s article 10 Items You Absolutely Need For Financial Security.
On the same topic, Photopreneur has a post about raising your prices HERE.
Eric Frischling, aka Flying With Fish, just got a book deal! Congrats to Eric, and good for us who travel with cameras because The Traveling Photographers Essential Pocket Guide is going to be a great resource to us.
Terry White was the guest author on Kelby’s Photoshop Insider this week, and gave a good tutorial on outputting images for an iPhone or iPod Touch. Link HERE.
David Hobby, aka Strobist, has a review of the new Nikon SB 900. I’m not a Nikon shooter, but these are sweet strobes. Nikon shooters toying with the idea of shelling out for these new strobes will want to read this.
A couple weeks back Scott Kelby asked the world to save August 23rd on their calendar. Keep it open, folks. I can’t say why. Just do it for me. Keep it open. Pretty please.
Yesterday Matt Brandon took a comparative look at VistaPrint and Overnight Prints on a recent business card project. Even I was surprised at the cost – and the cards look good. If you still haven’t got business cards that make prospects say “wow, nice card!” you need to step up to the plate.
Don’t forget to get your name in for the Free R-Strap Giveaway. Hey, while we’re talking about the R-strap, check out this two-camera set-up on Tony Schreiber’s blog. It’s similar to something I’ve been playing with, but while I’ve been toying with velcro, he’s gone and used straps. I like this alot. Check it out HERE.
Finally, a quote, found on the PhotoQuotes site. If you’re looking for inspiring out-of-context quotes from your favourite photographers, this is the place. It’s actually a great resource and the quotes are very well referenced.
A mad, keen photographer needs to get out into the world and work and make mistakes.
– Sam Abell
Have a great weekend. Shoot what you love, love what you shoot. Go make some mistakes.
