Canon 7D Test Shots

I've been playing with my Canon EOS 7D for about a week now. Just wanted to share a few recent shots. My workflow involves Adobe Lightroom 3, which I have grown to absolutely love. It's fast on my Macbook Air and can easily fix lens distortion with "profile corrections."

I previously enjoyed high-end photography equipment merely for the technological aspect of it and getting caught up in all the features. Now I'm taking the time to read up on techniques and recalling what I learned about photography while working on yearbook staff in high school. I'm sure I will write a beefy 7D-related blog post when I can carve out a few hours, but for now I'm just cranking away overtime on Picplum. Our upcoming photo uploader is slick — you see the photos you just dragged over before they have even uploaded. Gotta love FileReader.readAsDataURL() in HTML 5. Have you made a Picplum account yet? :-)

I have been flipping through some photography related Kindle books recently as well. The pick of the litter seems to be Speedliter's Handbook: Learning to Craft Light with Canon Speedlites (not an affiliate link because Amazon shutdown the Associates Program for California residents!).

Thoughts? What's your favorite photo blog or book?
