My Top 10 Links

Every week, we consume so much content but there are certain things that stick with us and influence our direction.

Here are my 10 from last week:

  1. Light Science & Magic: An Introduction to Photographic Lighting: This has quickly become my favorite book. My top 3 all-time possibly because of how it explains how to light subjects and how light behaves.

  2. The Artist's Way: 25th Anniversary Edition: If you are in a creative slump or still trying to find your inner creative child, this book is well written and based on the Creator’s will for your life.

  3. The Bite Shot on YouTube: I an not sure how I originally stumbled on this channel months ago but there was a reason I looked to look it up again this week. Super inspiring and full of great tips.

  4. #darkfoodphoto on Instagram: If you like food photography with added edge, this is the hashtag for you.

  5. #darkfoodphotography on Instagram: Yet, another great resource for your dark food photography taste.

  6. Camerabuzz on YouTube: Friend and fellow collaborator Logan Powell is starting a channel that will feature other artists and techy stuff. This week, I had the privilege to be apart of one his upcoming videos.

  7. Sony SEL90M28G FE 90mm f/2.8-22 Macro G OSS Standard-Prime Lens: I know I have mentioned this lens so many times on social media this past week but is has definitely become my top choice. My go-to.

  8. Anchor podcasts: I host three podcasts on this platform and I am completely satisfied with the ease provided to publish your podcast. What also is impressive, is their consistent activity on social media especially Twitter where they are always encouraging conversations, sharing tips, and encouragement.

  9. Manfrotto Tripods: Ever since I purchased my Manfrotto, I have loved the quality and durability of their product. Add that to the ability of my model giving me the ability to do top-down photos for products without buying a C-stand seals the deal.

  10. Tiles Are a Product Photographer’s Best Friend: To sum up my week, this article made the biggest impact on inspiring me and putting renewed focus back into product photography. Something I had stopped doing for the last several months.
