Friday's Resource Roundup
The UPS guy came 8 times this week. I’m worn out with all the gear. So this week’s resource round-up is gear-free. If it wasn’t, and I was ok with showing you THIS, then I’d also be ok showing you THIS. If you ever wanted to see how a photographer packs for the Olympics, these links will make you drool. If you haven’t, these links will still make you drool.
Lovin’ the new filters in Lightroom 2.0? You should be, the graduated filters are superb. Sean McCormack has produced a whole set of grad filter presets – find them on his Lightroom Blog HERE. They aren’t free, but when’s the last time you got 30 filters for less than $8? And they’re presets, not actual filters so I’m sliding them in on this no-gear Friday on a technicality. My blog, my rules.
FreelanceSwitch, one of my daily reads, has an excellent article on 30 Ways To Create An Incredible Client Experience. A must-read for any of you doing this as a freelancer/self-employed worker bee.
Corey Barker has an excellent guest post on Kelby’s blog this week – read it HERE.
Like great writing? If you’ve never read anything by Ryszard Kapuscinski, you’re missing out on some of the best travel writing ever. Lucid, graceful, human, and a master wordsmith. Man, I love his stuff. I just got his last book – he died last year – called Travels With Herodotus. I’ve also read several of his others and without exception I’ve loved them in a way I reserve for truly exceptional books. His author bio from The Shadow of The Sun includes this: During his four decades reporting on Asia, Latin America, and Africa, he befriended Che Guevera, Salvador Allende, and Patrice Lumumba; witnessed twenty-seven coups and revolutions; and was sentenced to death four times. How can you not love a man whose author bio includes that?
