I have determined that I will be trying to take at least a bit of time each night to learn new things or refresh skills in photography. The next 4 days will be filled with a huge refresher from +Trey Ratcliff and his online seminar… Honestly I am one that jumps onto things and comes back to the basics, it is high time I reinforce my basic photography knowledge to hopefully make me a much better photographer overall…  View this post on Google+

Just a reminder to get in on this upcoming online seminar this week if you have not yet signed up. I know many have differing opinions on Trey, but as one who has taken an online seminar – I have to say it was very well done and I still refer back to the materials to this day.  I plan on re-learning and refreshing a ton based on this one… also I am all for learning how others do things to better my own performance…. Reshared post from +Brent Burzycki I highly recommend these trainings +Trey Ratcliff does online – Especially for the beginner, thou any semi pro or pro could get great info from them also I took the HDR tutorial and not only did I learn a ton (I had never shot one HDR before the online seminar) but I made cool friends and still have copies of the tutorial to reference. I do not shoot everyday and I forget a ton of things, to be able to shoot back into the seminar and refresh my memory is worth the money alone. Right now you and a friend can sign up for the class for a special price, I am actually […]

Finally ApoD is on g+
In album July 2012 (1 photo) That's a must follow…. Reshared post from +Astronomy Picture of the Day (APoD) Ash and Lightning Above an Icelandic VolcanoImage Credit & Copyright: +Sigurdur Arnar Stefnissonhttp://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap120730.html Why did the picturesque 2010 volcanic eruption in Iceland create so much ash? Although the large ash plume was not unparalleled in its abundance, its location was particularly noticeable because it drifted across such well-populated areas. The Eyjafjallajökull volcano in southern Iceland began erupting on 2010 March 20, with a second eruption starting under the center of a small glacier on 2010 April 14. Neither eruption was unusually powerful. The second eruption, however, melted a large amount of glacial ice which then cooled and fragmented lava into gritty glass particles that were carried up with the rising volcanic plume. Pictured above during the second eruption, lightning bolts illuminate ash pouring out of the Eyjafjallajökull volcano. This post has been reshared 10 times on Google+ View this post on Google+

Holy killer house paint
Reshared post from +Sharon Strandskov *I want to coat every wall in my house with this paint*  …and I am 90% sure I am actually going to do it in my home office, at the very least. It is clear, so it can go over any color paint you already have in your home, and it will allow you to jot down notes, diagram anything and everything, draw pictures… oh, this is just way too much fun! http://www.whiteyboard.com/products/clear-dry-erase-paint.html This post has been reshared 3 times on Google+ View this post on Google+
