Around the Internet

Written by:

I’ve amassed quiet a list of finds from around the internet that I’ve been meaning to share with you all. There’s no time like the present!

First is the incredible shot of the Popocatepetl volcano in San Andrés Cholula, Mexico, that you see above. I came across it on Flickr not too long ago, and I just stared and stared. Just… wow. That’s all I can say. Every photographer dreams of achieving a shot like this. Well done, Ismael Alonso!

Scott Bourne provided a very thorough HDR primer that touches upon physical technique and post-processing tips. Lots of excellent advice in there to clarify things for even the most HDR-opposed. A shout-out to Trey Ratcliff is included. Both sites are very much worth the visit!

Larry Becker posted A Photographer’s Cure for GAS (Gear Acquisition Syndrome) which was amusing as well as thoughtfully written. He lists a series of questions to ask yourself before making your next gear purchase, which I will TRY to be mindful of the next time I’m overcome with lens lust.

I found the next link via Twitter. Shared by The Bored Ninja, it’s Andrew McDonald’s Pictorial Guide to Avoiding Camera Loss. I laughed so hard I almost cried. On top of being hysterical, it’s also a VERY good idea, and one that I plan on adopting myself.

I was recently looking for a creative and easy way to create a new signature to add to my photographs. I stumbled upon My Live Signature, and while the website is rather busy, the tool itself is easy to use and helped me create a new signature that I’m quite pleased with.

I’ve been a long-time fan of The Photoletariat (and envy the fact that they came up with that title first). Writer Sophia Betz recently published A Photographer’s Guide to Better Blogging: 10 Tips from the Photoshop Guys. She distills a workshop from Photoshop World in Vegas down to these ten great tips to keep in mind for your photo blogs.

For the women photographers out there, have I got a camera bag for you. Epiphanie creates marvelously stylish and functional camera bags for women looking for an attractive carrying solution for their gear. I personally covet this one.

The Digital Photography School, always a great resource, has provided another gem. Darren Rowse posts about why we need to become guerrilla travel photographers. He tells us we need to, “…take our chances when we can, “seize the moment” and take advantage of any opportunities that come our way.” Sometimes we need to get aggressive to get the shots we want!

Have you come across any great photography articles in your travels about the internet? Feel free to share them in the comments!
