Suburbia Press: Photography Ebooks for Everybody

There are definitely a lot of photography ebooks in the wild right now.  The one thing I've noticed though about those, is that most of them assume you're more of an intermediate/advanced photographer, and a lot of them can be hard to follow with photography terms that no one but the expert would understand.

Details Personal Photography Assignment

I'm the first to admit it, I'm horrible at shooting the details.  I love shooting the big action, but am really bad at finding the small details of some event or place that would've been a cool shot.

Field events in "Track and Field"

A couple of weeks ago I shot my first track and field event, with a second one last week. I used to run track as a kid, but haven't been to a track meet since then. Heading over to the stadium, I was trying to figure out what I was going to take.  Isn't it just a bunch of people running?  That will get old, right?

Nope.

I forgot about the "field" part of "track and field."  And wow, those did not get old.  At all.  

Live it Big Time - Big Time Rush

When I was growing up, the big boy band was New Kids on the Block.  I liked them, but unlike other girls, I didn't like-like them (as kids then would say).  

Getting older and out of the teenage range, there was 'N'Sync, Backstreet Boys, and don't forget about Hanson (secret note: I still enjoy listening to "MMMBop" occassionally).  Again, I liked them, but didn't get obssessed.  

On Shooting from the Soundboard

I had my first soundboard shoot recently when I shot Kelly Clarkson.  I found out pretty much that day that it was a soundboard shoot, and I went into the concert hoping my 70-200 was good enough.  I did try to calibrate my 1.4x extender, but couldn't get it calibrated right, so I gave up on using it.

Did I enjoy the soundboard shoot?  More no, than yes honestly.  What were the issues I came across?

Photoshop World DC 2012

Now that I'm semi-rested again after returning from the first Photoshop World in Washington D.C., I figured I'd get on to my recap.
