Another month is coming to an end and here are a few photography links as Summer turns to Autumn tomorrow at 10:49AM Eastern Daylight Time (2:49PM UTC).

Last month I told you how I like to include people in my travel photos to add human interest.  Over at the Digital Photography School (DPS), Kim Wilson also talks about the Importance of People in Travel Photos.  Reading and viewing her work showed me I need to continue to work on mine.

You all know I am a fan of Bryan Peterson and his must-read photography book, Understanding Exposure.  Thought you would like to hear an interview with him on the Typical Shutterbug Podcast.

When I am out photographing, I sometimes climb stairs, hop on benches, get down on my knees or stomach and ask people if they would not mind being photographed.  When I feel silly or get a run of people saying they would not like to be photographed, this essay by Scott Bourne will help me to re-find the courage to be creative.

With summer ending astronomically tomorrow, do not forget this month’s assignment is due next Wednesday.

    Great links Scott. I’ve been learning from and enjoying Bryan Peterson’s videos on Adorama TV (http://www.adorama.com/alc/category/AdoramaTV-You-Keep-Shooting).

    Brian Peterson is an inspiration. The book you mention is the 1st I ever recommend to anyone interested in Photography. Podcasts are also great. Here’s one I enjoy. Rick Sammon & Juan Pons. http://dpexperience.com/
    One of many great podcast resources available.

    I liked that Scott Bourne essay. Said some things I needed to hear – even at my level of photography they are good to hear. Hoping to get out today and find that creativity to get your assignment done.
