Review of Ricoh CX5

Finally published my review of the excellent Ricoh CX5: http://www.fatphotographer.net/reviews/index.php?article=13

Sample of review:

With a weeklong trip to France planned it seemed the ideal time for me to really put the camera in more experienced hands, and in many ways the camera did not disappoint.

A cracking little camera!

We have today published a new how to shoot article from Michael Ho: http://www.fatphotographer.net/links/how_to_shoot/nature_-_photographing_wildlife_in_alaska.html

His excellent article covers photographing wildlife in Alaska, a topic many people dream of persuing I'm sure you will agree. More of Michaels work can be found at: http://michaeldanielho.com/ His opening whale shot is a must to see if nothing else :)

Stock photography

We have not too long ago now, published a coupl of articles on preparing images for stock photography websites on our how to post process pages:

Key wording tips: http://www.fatphotographer.net/links/how_to_post_process/stock_photography_-_keywording_tips.html
A breif guide to preparing images: http://www.fatphotographer.net/links/how_to_post_process/stock_photography_-_a_brief_guide_to_preparing_images.html

We are always after more of the same from experienced stock photographers, but in the mean time for anyone interested in stock photography that isn't sure where to start we have a brief guide on our stock agencies pages: http://www.fatphotographer.net/links/library/stock_agencies.html that might help

I thought a post here might help point a few more people towards these great resources, so please feel free to pass on the links to anyone you think might be interested.
