That's it, I quit.

Scott Kelby posted this LINK this morning and it’s honestly some of the most inspiring, soul-touching imagery I’ve ever seen. Aside from making me want to put down my cameras and walk away quietly, it’s just simply wonderful, like the sense of wonder and artistry I get when reading Annie Dillard or CS Lewis.

Anyways, sorry to leave you with so little these days. Busy time of year. Your time will be well-rewarded spent looking at the images of Rarindra Prakarsa – link HERE

I haven’t taken the bait just yet, but if you’re looking to get you some learnin’ the fine follks at Kelby Training – I swear Scott Kelby is a robot with superpowers – have an online video-based training service that, from my first glance, looks well worth the money. For $20 a month you can have access to tutorial videos by some of the best educators in all things Adobe and Photographic. NAPP members get it for something like $17/mo. – link HERE – Could be some of the best money you spend on your professional development.

A couple of my current daily reads from the blogosphere:

Scott Kelby is always my first stop – HERE
Joe McNally has just started blogging – HERE
Chase Jarvis has an excellent blog, though like me he’s not a daily read – HERE
Strobist – All things flash-related, This one’s becoming so big it qualifies as a cult, but the Kool-Aid’s ok. -HERE
Moose Peterson has a great blog – HERE

Mongolia In February

**There’s a subliminal message embedded in this photograph. See if you can find it. I’ve had some questions about my preparation to shoot in Mongolia. It’s a winter shoot, outside, so it comes with challenges I don’t usually face while shooting in Africa, S. America or Asia. Temps right now in Ulaanbataar are running from […]

Think Tank Photo: Digital Holster Review

A month ago I decided to try the same set-up Karl Grobl uses. See THIS POST for the low-down. The goal was this – a working set-up that allowed me to shoot with two pro-sized bodies, lens hoods in place, and no bag to have to set down and fiddle with everytime I got shooting. […]
