Each week, I read a wide variety of blog posts and articles across the internet. I wander here and wander there and before I know it I’ve spent an eternity avoiding all the work that I should have been doing by reading other people’s writing. I share my favorites here with you each week in the Weekly Wanderings link round-up. I hope you enjoy and find something useful!
- New Photographer’s Guide to Blue Hour – Ausaaf Ahmad for Digital Photography School. A good primer for those of us who are looking to improve our practice in the coming year.
- Shot Spot – A great little website that allows you to input your location and it will give you lists of locations that are good for photography. I’m excited to give this a whirl in the coming weeks. I’m always looking for another location to take photos. I’m hoping this takes me to places that I haven’t already shot.
- 5 Quick, Easy Habits that Have Actually Strengthened My Relationships – Gretchen Rubin. I really like the idea of doing updates with the far-flung folks that I love.
- 14 Daily Habits That Will Make You Happier and Healthier – Sacha Strebe for My Domaine. This list wasn’t at all what I expected when I first clicked on it. While I am trying to get physically healthier in 2016, I don’t want to be bombarded with diet and exercise tips (because let’s face it – we all know what to do. We’ve heard it so many times that we know. We just choose to not do what we need to do), so it’s nice that this list isn’t about diet and exercise. It’s more about things like meditation (I need to get back to that practice), positivity, gratitude. I can get in line with that.
- The Book of Yes – Yes and Yes! Free until the end of January, Sarah has created a great printable book that actually contains mini-workbooks that you can fill out to help you meet your goals for the new year. Sarah took the most common new years resolution and broke them down into manageable, doable strategies. Make sure you can check it out!
- Photography is in My Blood – Karen Hutton. I can relate to the journey through cameras. It might be interesting to do a similar post on the cameras I’ve loved and moved on from and what I want next. But really – stick around for Karen’s photos. They are exquisite.
- 10 Steps to Make Your Dream Collaborations Happen – Fire and Wind Co. This is timely for me. There are a ton of collaborations that I want to get underway, and this gives me a great way to begin getting them underway.
- 10 Tips for Taking Beautiful iPhone Photos in Mist & Fog – Karyn Teno for iPhone Photography School. I could have used this last week when I was shooting my 10 on 10 project but I’m going to file this away for the next time…which should be soon.
It’s a short list this week. I’ve been busy establishing healthy habits at home. More next week 😉
