In this recurring column, we highlight a few items we've run across that don't merit a full story of their own but are interesting enough to bring to your attention (with more than 140 characters). This time we look at strategies for lighting against the sun, getting into infrared photography, McNally as a fellow of the Royal Photographic Society and a discount on a filmmaking book for photographers.

  • David Hobby shares some advice on Choosing Big Lights. How big? Depends. "The more flash power you have, the more working distance you can employ (light to subject) when competing with the sun," he writes. Shooting people outdoors in daylight requires 300-400WS.
  • Rick Battle has published a step-by-step introduction to Infrared Photography. He covers hardware options and software techniques for both color and black and white.
  • Joe McNally has been inducted as a fellow into the The Royal Photographic Society, "brought a small smile of remembrance to my face," he says as he begins to tell the story.
  • Rocky Nook offers Filmmaking Essentials for Photographers for $15 until Oct. 17 when you use the code FILMMAKER15.

More to come! Meanwhile, please support our efforts...
