Here is a compilation of all the good stuff I have been reading on the web lately.
- It is amazing how much good software can do to your images. The debate about post-processing’s to-do or not-to-do will never end, but it is hard to debate the fact that people do make beautiful looking images with plenty of help from software. And there are always a good number of photographers who wonder what would be the steps followed or the software tools used in arriving at that amazing end-result. On Digital Photography School, here is an interesting example all things that a RAW image went through into making the image of a colourful Seattle skyline.
- A lot of us take cabs to commute. A lot of us complain about their inefficiencies or lack of professionalism as well. But few of us would have seen or known the other side of the story. Here is one such story, of a man who drove a cab and all things that he thought about his work.
- Nearly every other travel story that you read is about a place or about an experience. The places remain the same (more or less) and stories about the place without an experience slowly loose sheen. Some times, there are brilliant stories that are primarily about the experience that may transcend the importance of the place. The experience may be extraordinary, unusual or it could just be the brilliant narrative of the author. One such story by Dianne Sharma-Winter talks about her experience of having to face a police inquiry and having to explain an association with a Guru.
- For a lot of people, a wildlife trip is simply about spotting a tiger or a leopard. But there is much more to wildlife and wilderness for a keen observer. Small life is fascinating as well, with some amazing behaviour and action that escapes our eyes simply because they are too small. Ever took time to wonder about the life of ants or lichens? Radha Rangarajan shares her insights into symbiotic relationships in small life, which is present everywhere around us but barely gets seen.
- Old World Wandering has some very interesting insights into the present and future of travel writing and blogging. The insights are drawn through interesting interviews with some well-known travel bloggers and writers – Rolf Potts, Jodi Ettenberg and Graham Boynton.
