Upcoming and Elsewhere
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
Hello friends! I thought I’d let you know about some things that are in the works for upcoming entries, as well as some things that are happening elsewhere on the subject of photography.
First up, I am in possession of my copy of Scott Kelby’s new workbook/DVD combo, Photo Recipes Live: Behind the Scenes: Your Guide to Today’s Most Popular Lighting Techniques. I will be reviewing this product in an entry later this week. I’m quite enthusiastic about it, as it seems to be an excellent teaching tool for learning natural and artificial lighting techniques. It certainly has been well received in the industry.
I am also working with the wonderful folks at Pro Photo Rental to get my hands on various lenses and give you guys some great lens reviews. This will be a regular feature here at Beyond Megapixels, so if you have specific lens review requests, let me know. I am receiving two Canon lenses – an EF-S 17-55 f/2.8 IS and an EF 24-70 f/2.8L and will be putting them through their paces next week.
Next, I’d like to let you know that I’ve posted a few guest entries at other photography sites:
- The Digital Photography School accepted my contribution for Metering Modes Explained, which I hope you will all find to be informative and educational.
- Your Photo Tips published my article about Earning Money With Digital Photography – Sell Your Photos. This article talks about ways to sell your pictures, on-line and in person.
- For our Spanish speaking readers, I have been translated! I was excited about this, let me tell you. Fotomaf published my article about Tips for Shooting Group Portraits, and also my article titled Photography’s Going Green, which is about how photography is becoming environmentally friendly.
Finally, here are some great articles that I’ve come across in the past couple of weeks, written by our colleagues elsewhere:
- Scott Bourne at PhotoFocus explains his take on Why Nikon as Video Cam Doesn’t Stand Up to Canon as Video Cam.
- Running From Camera was recently featured by Popular Photography, and I’ve got to say it’s a great idea – one that I’m going to try out myself sometime soon! The concept is just as it sounds – take pictures of yourself running away from the camera!
- Speaking of Popular Photography, they recently published a great article titled Getting Great Shots in Harsh Light. You can still take great pictures, even at high noon!
- DigitalRev posted an article on a subject that has always been a bit confusing to me – My Sensor Is Bigger Than Yours – The Truth About Sensor Sizes. I found it to be very helpful!
