Elsewhere:

Meanwhile, back at the ranch… (ha, okay, kidding… I’ve always wanted to use that somewhere). Here are some items that have captured my interest during recent forays into the internet.

- Craig Kempf kindly and regularly contributes his photographs to the Beyond Megapixels Flickr Pool. I always find his images fascinating, and his use of HDR so compelling that I have been convinced to purchase a copy of Photomatrix myself. His Old and Abandoned set is a particular favorite of mine, go and check him out!

- The folks over at Photoxels have provided a nice little tutorial about area focus.

- Cambridge In Colour has a FANTASTIC article that explains digital camera sensors and how they work.

- NAPP has rolled out a collection of free on-line Photoshop CS5 tutorials, no NAPP membership required!

- I watched Episode 35 of D-Town TV and really found it to be helpful. Included in the 18+ minute webcast are tips for showing motion in sports photography shots (panning, shutter speed, aperture, etc.), wildlife photography tips (exposure compensation, lens and body tips), digital camera settings, and more.

- Did you know that your camera’s shutter has a life expectancy? I didn’t, until I read this article from the good folks at Digital Photography School.

Photo Credits (in order of appearance):

    “How to Photograph Absolutely Everything” is a terrible book that I wouldn't recommend to anyone at all (the title caught my eye at the bookstore and I sat down with it for 10 minutes – that was enough). It's aimed at extreme novices, and could provide some helpful tips to beginners, but the layout of the book and the short clips of info are terrible. Unless beginners are getting this book at a yard sale for 50 cents, they can do better elsewhere.
