Its a Snow Day!

As it seems that about 60% of the United States is covered with snow, I thought it would be a good day to share a few links of interest since so many are 'snowed in' at home with nothing to do.  Of course the worrying of the stock levels of milk and bread may be keeping some folks quite busy.

Kickin' it off...

The guys at D-Town TV (Scott Kelby and Matt Kloskowski) are back with a new season, and unlike the previous season which was Nikon specific, this time around the shows are about all dSLR's in general.  So any of you Canon, Pentax or Sony folks who felt left out with the first season, now is the time to check out the new one.  They cover everything photography related, including tons of cool gear tips.

Ever wonder why some people almost always take great shots?  Check out this article over at Light!

Curious to see how the past decade has grown in digital photography?  Then check out this link over at Photo District News. just put out their list of the 10 Most Collectible Photography Books of All Time.  Keep in mind, these may not be the most popular as of today, but definitely worth having in your collection ...that is if you can afford them!

This one's not necessarily photography related, but definitely art related and very cool!  Check out Leonardo Da Vinci's resume!  See?  Times were just as tough (if not tougher) in 1482.

If you're in to wedding photography, or just spectacular images in general, then you can now pre-order David Ziser's new book, "Captured by the Light:  The Essential Guide to Creating Extraordinary Wedding Photography" over at Amazon.  Even if you're not a wedding photographer, David Ziser is an amazing portrait photographer and master of lighting, be sure to take a look.

Want some cool tips and inspiration on HDR photography, then check out this link!

Last but not least, one of my favorite artists just did an awesome interview of one of my favorite photographers, Scott Slusher.  You can check out the article right HERE. ...(possibly NSFW images).

That's it for now!  Hope this gives you plenty of stuff to occupy your time today, and will keep your mind off all of that snow shoveling you're eventually going to have to do.  Keep warm!
