The Friday Wrap Up

by Eric Von Lehmden | August 30, 2013

Ahhhh. Nothing better than a Friday before a Holiday weekend. Labor Day and the unofficial end of summer approaches. For those of us stuck inside with the 100+ degrees outside can't wait to get outside to do some activities that don't involve a sweaty shirt after 15 minutes. I know...nice visual.

Well, I have been unsuccessful at posting the last 2 Friday's wrap ups. Not for trying, but apparently there is a mysterious force out there swallowing only my Friday blog posts. It is frustrating...I will leave it at that. But I always am finding new things to share that inspire us or put a smile on our faces. So I will keep at it until it works. Here are a few things to check out when you get a chance.

This is not brand new, but it is still worth sharing. Street photographer Thomas Leuthard has free ebooks available that are worth the read. Thomas gives his advice and his technique in the ebooks. Check them out here.

I can see this becoming the new trend at weddings. I seriously would have loved to have one at my wedding. Awesome idea. It is the slow motion photo booth.

VSCO continues to inspire with their weekly selects. I have been obsessed with their VSCO cam camera app. If you haven't downloaded it you should do it asap. Especially if you are a film enthusiast. Their weekly selects are from their "Journal" or blog. After you finish checking this out take a look at the rest of their fantastic journal. It includes interviews with photographers with insights into how they work. Fantastic inspiration.

There is a ton of other stuff I want to share, but I don't want to overwhelm. If you have something (photo or art related) that you think is radical and people need to know about it then let me know in the comments below and I will do my best to pass it on. Have a great Labor Day weekend everyone.

Bright colored clothing is great for family portraits. Your subject's skin will look great by contrast and the color will pop. Not everyone has to match. The last thing you want is a Brady Bunch moment. Keep the colors in the same hues or Girls where one color and Boys where a different color.
