Slacker!

I have been slacking so badly on the blog lately! Jenn (my girlfriend) and I are in the process of buying a new home and I can say its been about as fun as bamboo splinters driven deeply under the finger nails.

I will officially be moved out of little house on the dairy farm by the end of this week. My roommate and I have shared this house for about 16 years and oh, what a long, strange trip its been! However, I'm ready to move on and start a new era of my life.

That being said, I haven't done any cool photography projects lately, so I thought I would post about a few things I have found around the webber-net over the last month or so.

Hopefully, we will be closing on our new place some time mid-September. After getting settled in, I'm hoping to get a few more informative projects up on the blog. Thanks to those who have been checking in for new posts, even though the well has been dry for a while!

In no particular order...

1. Photographer John Keatley has caught my eye ever since David Hobby of the Strobist blog posted an article about him. He has his own blog, and a website. Check them out, he produces some really cool stuff!

2. Joe McNally is starting a Q&A thing where once a week he will try to answer reader's photography related questions. Joe is a wealth of knowledge and one of my favorite photographers so it should be a pretty informative project. You can get the whole scoop HERE.

3. Are you tired of teenagers (and ignorant adults) making that stupid "duck face" expression and holding up the piece sign like they're some kind of derranged rapper? Well, this guy is too. Check out Anti Duck Face ...be sure to forward this to anyone you know who wears this out!

4. FULL REVIEW of the new Radio Poppers on the Strobist blog!

5. Poor, poor Annie ...I don't care what anyone says, she's an extraordinary photographer and I love her work!

6. Zack Arias shows how to make a really kick-a$$ group shot using only one speedlight, some ingenuity and tupperware

7. I have recently joined Kelby Training, an online training resource for photographers created by Scott Kelby of the Photoshop Insider blog and I have to say, there are TONS of informative tutorials on there covering everything from lighting, to Photoshop, to weddings to... well everything photography related. You can sign up for a free month to check it out and I HIGHLY recommend it!

8. Oh yeah, I'm still shooting too ...for fun and for profit. =)

Rent-to-own home is another good option in purchasing a house especially if your funds is not that sufficient for a downpayment and monthly mortgage. Just be open with the seller on some conditions on your contract so that both will have the advantage on the set-up.
