Weekend Links Roundup 4/10/10

Lots of great material out there this week. Here’s some of the stuff I found most interesting:
Scott Bourne has some good tips for shooting wildlife in this post.
Richard Koci-Hernandez is amazing as usual with this set of Inspirational Links at Multimedia Shooter.
Photoshelter’s take on the launch of the iPad. This is a real group of heavy-hitters, check this article out.
Lightstalking has an article on how to photograph the moon. Worth a look, but be forewarned that some of the example photos included involve VERY long glass or photo assemblage (i.e., Photoshop) to create the results.
Epic Edits has a great list of all the ways digital is better than film: for those of us who remember a film-only world, this is a nice reminder of how much better we have it now!
Laughing Squid has an interesting post, complete with short film, about UK shooter Phillip Bloom’s visit to George Lucas’s legendary Skywalker Ranch to teach Star Wars producer Rick McCallum about shooting HD video with Canon 5D and 7D’s.
For landscape lovers, if you haven’t seen Michael Reichmann’s portfolio of images from his 2009 Antartica trip (along with full commentary) over at The Luminous Landscape, you need to go take a look. (This is not a new post, just one filled with beautiful images.)
