More inspiration

SmashingApps is a website dedicated to providing free and useful resources to creative professionals. They recently posted a great collection of photos called 23 Breathtaking Moments And Ideas Captured By Photographers. Some of the photos are truly outstanding, and hopefully many will give you ideas for projects you might like to try on your own. (Be forewarned, as of this posting, some of the photos are not oriented correctly, so be prepared to tilt your head to view them.)

Ready for some hiking and shooting

Just finished packing for tomorrow's Second Annual PhotoWalk, where I and 30,000+ of my closest photographer friends will be out and about shooting millions of pictures across the world. It's not too late to join us.

You notice I packed the night before....and there's a good reason. Try as I will to take everything I think I might need, and leave everything behind that I probably wouldn't use, I'll still think of something else before I go. That way I've still got time to pack it before I walk out the door in the morning.

In the old days I packed right before leaving and invariably a couple hours later I would think of something I should have added. Back then though, I was already on the road. This works so much better.  Try it.

Hot new iPhone app

Just released, from onOne Software, an app to allow remote triggering of your Canon SLR. (Nikon shooters, hold on a little longer, that app is coming.)

From the onOne site: "DSLR Camera Remote is the next-generation cable release for your Canon EOS DSLR camera. Just connect your camera to a WiFi enabled computer and the DSLR Camera Remote software enables you to use your Apple iPhone or iPod touch to wirelessly adjust cameras settings, fire the shutter, review images, even get a live viewfinder preview. DSLR Camera Remote is a must-have for remote shooting applications like high or low angles, self portraits and children. With its advanced timers it makes remote monitoring a snap. No internet connection required!"

The app even lets you review the shot you just took, to confirm you got what you wanted.

Two versions are available - lite for $1.99 and professional for $19.99. Both are available through the iTunes Store.
