Nature, Flash, and Photography Business

Outstanding Nature Photos

I love this type of stuff — links to great photos.  The editors at Nature Photographers Online Magazine posted their “2006 Editor's Pick Awards”.  AMAZING photos here.  They've chosen stuff from categories like birds, animals, macro, landscape, plants/trees, and more.  A must see.

Doing More With Your Flash

Once again, the Digital Photography School had posted another great photo-tips article.  This one titled “Slow Sync Flash“, teaches us about different ways of using your flash's slow sync feature.  If you have a flash with this capability and you're looking for new ideas on things to photograph, this is pretty dang interesting.  I know what I'll be doing next time I'm out in the dark with my camera.

Photography Business

I found this great blog by John Harrington called Photo Business News & Forum that talks about different aspects of photography as a business.  If you've ever thought you might like to get into the business of selling your photos or services, this is going to be a good source of information for you.  I'm in that group of people who want to make something of their work, and I've found that the more you learn about this topic, the less scary and out of reach it seems.
