An iPad in your photo bag gives you more than just a way to check your email when you’ve finished shooting. In Part 1 of this series, I pointed out how the iPad can help you research photo locations. In Part 2, I demonstrated how valuable the iPad can be for importing and reviewing photos while you’re still capturing them on location.
But what happens after the shots are captured? Traditionally, you’d have to wait until you could transfer the photos from your memory cards to a computer for further work. With the iPad, though, you can get a jump on important post-processing tasks like rating and applying keywords while you’re still in the field and your memory’s fresh—and so they don’t loom over you when you get home.

Have you ever sworn that you would never engage in office politics? It’s hard to blame you. Politics is dirty, self-serving, and underhanded, right? Well—not really. Sometimes it can be, but that’s a comment about the nature of the leadership team, not politics.
In this week’s first tip, I show you why politics in and of itself is neither good nor bad. It’s like any form of communication; it depends on how you use it. Let’s be clear: You should be politically active. You can be ethical, kind, and virtuous, but you do need to learn to play politics.

One piece of advice sticks in my mind from the days when I started learning PHP: “Just read the PHP online documentation. You don’t need anything else.” PHP’s online manual is excellent, and contains lots of practical examples. But it was like throwing me a Chinese dictionary and telling me it contained all I needed to learn the language. I had no idea where to start.
