Newsweek has put out this wonderful slide show for us camera buffs who could not make it to the Olympics. Some of these shots are quite amazing and beautiful. These are shots to learn by.
Rotor News is reporting on a contest with a thousand-dollar prize. They are taking submissions till September 15Th - read the details. I imagine the number of entries will be low, so your chances of winning could be high.
First reviews of the new Nikon SB-900 are out, and it is going to be a powerhouse of a Speedlight. You can read the review here.
If you have ever felt ill at ease when taking photographs in public, it is nothing compared to the paranoia of picture takers in England. At least it is not this bad in the United States, but we all have our unfortunate tales.
And one more contest, but you have to be quick. This one is from Aperture and will include the trip of a lifetime. Contest ends in 11 days.
And for my friend who talked about needing a bubble level for their camera, see the ad below.
