- We begin this week with Scott Kelby’s elegant, concise, and bang-on critique of trolls. Scott repeatedly gets beat up over his views, and his response to the naysayers bears reading.
- David Hobby’s Strobist.com site has gotten many a photographer started down the path to off-camera lighting. Now, David takes readers through his experimentation with the Fuji X100s and off-camera lighting. Yet another read that shouldn’t be missed.
- And speaking of off-camera strobes, the master himself, Joe McNally, has a new blog post up. From China to South Africa, Joe’s stories are as entertaining as they are educational.
- Since we’re on the subject of lighting anyway, head on over to Popular Photography to read about photographer Robert Paetz’s awesome starscapes-meets-portraiture work.
- Fuji fans (myself included) rejoice! The X-Pro1 and X-E1 are getting focus peaking!
- Finally, for the fans of creepy time-lapse, here’s a time lapse of an ancient statue that likes to rotate all by itself. Yeah, spooky.
