Wow, what a week. Ok, first, be sure to keep reading today, there’s a post under this one welcoming a new sponsor. Other than that, a few things to go into the long weekend with. I’m taking Monday off, so this has got to last you.
Yesterday was the soft-launch of my book, pictured left. My publisher, Peachpit, has released a sample of my book and it’s available for download. Go HERE for that announcement and to see what Scott Kelby, who is one of the few to have read the book, has to say about it. I’d post it again here, but it makes me blush. If you missed that post, please do read it – it’s about the biggest thing to happen in these here parts since, well, ever. The reactions to the sample chapter have been overwhelming – the comments and the emails, the tweets, all so encouraging – thank you! Just want to go to Amazon and pre-order it, here’s the link: Within the Frame on Amazon.com And HERE’s the B&N link too.
Second, Drobo has just released the DROBO Pro. It’s all the Drobo goodness, but with 8 bays and a triple interface. Drobo just left the home and into the business world. I want one of these so bad it hurts. For more information, look HERE. Gear is Good, Vision is Better, Backup is Mandatory.
Third, one of the most popular posts I’ve ever done – no, THE most popular post – was last weeks bit about the things comedians can teach photographers. You can read that post HERE and the follow up post, which got overshadowed by the book announcement yesterday, HERE.
Fourth, fellow Canadian and wildlife photographer Paul Burwell has a fantastic post on his blog about the top 10 mistakes that aspiring freelance photographers make, and that’s available HERE and worth a read.
Fifth, THIS makes me laugh. Math and I don’t get along. But photographers math? I wish I’d thought of this.
Sixth, keep reading, there’s one more post under this one, which due to the vagaries of the way articles get published, will actually publish first. Hmmm, so the first WILL be last… have a great weekend, y’all.
