In lieu of a software review, today instead just a couple news nuggets for you.

  • First up, the finalists of the $500 giveaway have been determined.  These six finalists are being considered to win a pretty impressive package of stuff including a Thinktank Photo Multimedia Bag System and a complete set of the Topaz Labs Photoshop Bundle.  View the finalists gallery here.
  • Next up, a recommendation:  Even if you aren’t a subscriber to the Rangefinder Magazine (although you should be), you can read the current issue online here, (it’s a PDF download) which includes in the most recent issue an interview of none other than David Hobby, founder and author of the world-famous Strobist blog.
  • From Scott over at one of my favorite daily reads (Weekly Photo TIps), there is a new PBS series starting this week on National Parks.  I am definitely setting the DVR for this series!
  • As a longtime fan of DIY-projects, this one on making a tripod for your P&S (or iPhone) out of a paperclip was just too cool to leave out of the list.
  • And finally, for those that just insist on getting a photo fix regularly, visit former contest winner John Dunne’s blog, My Chi to see a great dilemma as he is torn between a color and a black and white version of a sunrise scene on the Promenade (psst….I like the black and white version!)…

Well, that’s it for today, be sure to stop back tomorrow for another dose of inspiration as we hit the midway point of the week (a.k.a. hump day)!  Happy shooting and we’ll see you then…

  1. Wow – “one of my favorite daily reads” – you are making me blush.

    😉

    Thanks for the kind words Jason.

  2. Wow thanks for considering me as one of the finalists! I too will be checking out the Rangefinder 🙂

  3. Wow, I’m a contender? Thanks, that makes me smile for the morning. Almost makes me forget I have 3 different photo series to sort this week (classic cars for a client, fire dancers, and the Coyote Buttes trip), 2 web clients with new big needs, new uploads for my business partner, and color matching several pastel pieces today.

    Whew, I need an assistant!

    Too funny on the Rangefinder. I’ve been getting their web information and magazine since the Spring. A friend turned me on to it, and it’s worth a read. Best part……free to you the subscriber!
