News, Tips and Cool Stuff for Photographers

I spend every morning scouring photography websites and blogs. I use Twitter and my AllTop blog reader to condense my search. I usually post interesting items on my Facebook Fan page and thought it would be a good idea to blog about the interesting items I stumble on.

Like the f-stop watch, for example. I so want one!

Check out this cool video of a flame thrower versus a fire extinguisher taken at 1000 frames per second! Guess who wins.

Or this video of 52 Canon DSLRs used to shoot a Matrix-style surfing video. Tres cool!

How about two 5-minute videos on posing models? It’s really aimed at stock photographers, but there are some helpful tips in there.

I leave you with an article featuring 25 sites where you can get free stock images. I found it through LinkedIn, so if you can’t access the link, let me know in the comments and I’ll post them here.

  1. Thanks Cheryl and Charlie.

    I literally spend every morning consuming photography blogs and sites. I read over them the way most people would read their morning paper. I don’t know why it just occured to me to gather all the cool things I come across and post it in one place.
