Tuesday On the Web

Welcome to my roundup of the best stuff I saw on the internet the past week.  Enjoy!

The REAL stuff white people like If I weren’t a photographer, I might be interested in statistical analysis.  I find data immensely fascinating, especially when it’s data about people.  Honestly, I compile a number of data points about myself and revel in making charts, plotting graphs and trending various parts of my life.  This article takes data pulled from OKCupid to find out how people on the site self-describe.  It’s really interesting stuff.

Comparing online backup services via Wise Bread Photographers need a lot of disc space.  I’ve been looking into online storage solutions for a while now.  If I ever take this show on the road, it will become even more important.

Top 10 personal development blogs you wish you knew about earlier A significant portion of my RSS feed reader consists of “personal development” blogs.  That phrase is like nails on a chalkboard to me – it sounds ridiculous and very corporate – but really a lot of the blogs I read have great advice.  I already subscribe to a number of blogs on this list.  If you’re interested in the topic, it’s a good place to start.

Fabulous Freebies 2010 The format of this list is really awful but if you can stand it, you’ll find some great tips for free services and things.

How to give an outdoor portrait a warm cross-processed look The name says it all!  I haven’t tried it yet, but I do intend to add this to my processing arsenal.

I don’t have a good picture from the last few days, so here’s an old self-portrait.  I took this in Charleston, SC on a business trip.  Hotel room portraits are actually something of a project of mine.  When I’m in Duluth next week, I’ll add to my collection.

Funny about the “stuff white people like” article at cupid.com. When I first read it a couple of days ago I thought the exact same thing. I love data! I love how you can compile it into different little segments and create neat little boxes of information. I find it so interesting. Maybe that’s the technical side of being a photographer that’s drawn to that kinda stuff?
