♦ With everything I have going on these days, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with all my favorite blogs, even with my RSS reader at full-tilt. Well yesterday I got a chance to catch up with one of my favorite on-going series, Photography Interviews by Crash Taylor. I really enjoyed the interview with Colorado wedding photographers Andy and Angie Wood. Then I went back and took a peek at last weeks edition featuring Jasmine Star. All I can say is Wow! I’ve been a Jasmine fan for a while but this was a great interview with a larger-than-life photographer who produces some fantastic images. It really was an inspiring read. You can find all of the great interviews from Crash by clicking here.
♦ If you are going to be in New York City today around 1:00 PM and happen to be wandering near 420 9th Ave., you might want to see if you can get a seat at the Lighting for Portraiture Workshop being presented at B&H Photo by Westcott. The Workshop is being lead by photographer Dave Piazza and is being held from 1:00 to 5:00. The event is completely booked but you might be able to snag a no-show seat on a first come, first serve basis. To check out future events scheduled at B&H, head to the Event Space page.
♦ I saw this link on a Tweet from 1001 NoisyCameras that lead to a collection of 20 HDR portraits. I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of HDR for people pictures because it can really do some scary things but I have to admit that there are some really cool images in this collection. Give it a look and see what you think (click here).
♦ I have added a new blog to my feed reader that you might enjoy. I know, like I have time to keep up with all the ones I already subscribe to but this one is a a really great read. It’s called State of the Art and it’s from the editors of American Photo. You can find all the bloggy goodness here.
♦ Finally today, I am excited because I have added another new camera to my list of photo goodies. I know it’s getting bad when my wife says “another one?” but yes, yesterday I picked up the Canon T1i so I can start researching the next book in the “Snapshots to Great Shots” series. I’ve only had it switched on for a few minutes but it was instantly familiar to me after having spent so much time with the 50D. I’ll be sure to let you know how I am getting along with it in the weeks to come.
That’s it for this Wednesday. See you back here bright and early on Thursday.
