It’s been a busy week here at Lincoln Barbour Photo. A great shoot yesterday, two shoots next week to get ready for, estimates and portfolios going out the door, my bookkeeping is way behind, I even have some web projects needed to get done yesterday. Not complaining, mind you, it’s a very nice change from last year. I’ve got some other posts in draft mode, but I don’t think they’re going to get done today.
But I wanted to post something. So, I’ve decided to make Fridays a links day. Every week, I pick up a lot of great photo business information on various blogs, social sites, etc. Instead of hoarding all this great knowledge, I thought I’d share what I’ve learn and then we can discuss them in the comments below.
- On Photoshelter’s Blog, I read about “8 Ways To Get More Work From Existing Clients“
- Vincent Laforet wrote a great post about the new Zeiss cine lenses with HDDSLR mounts. I haven’t enjoyed shooting video because accurate focus is so difficult on the standard AF style lenses. But these lenses make me rethink the whole video game. We’ll see…
- Knowing how to take a photograph is half the battle in commercial photography. Knowing how to take a photograph that gets someone’s attention may require scientific research. On PSFK, a great read on how Campbell Soup’s used neuromarketing to redesign their labels and you can see how it influenced their food photography.
- Black Star Rising is a great blog. They consistently post a great variety of marketing tips from photographers of all genres. I thought that these eight questions are something every photographer should ask themselves.
- The ad agency of the future will affect all commercial photographers. A very thought provoking read about how ad agencies should change is here on What Consumes Me.
- Finally, since Photoshop turned 20 this week, here’s a little humor on the invention of Photoshop from my very favorite online comic Achewood.
Have a great weekend everyone and enjoy those Rolos!
