A dog + A GoPro + Sicily in the summer = win
My favorite thing is the owner saying "piano, eh" ("go slow") to the dog at the beginning of the video, right before the dogs bolts away.

Apparently they didn't have doors in Finland until 1979 and people were having troubles dealing with them.
Adorable.

If you dig a little deeper I think you will find a video that tells them how to walk upright, Sara ;)

This stuff is how I started to be able to ask money in exchange for photos. Now it's available in pdf format.
 
Thanks to the work of Strobist reader Michael Turcotte, the newest version (late 2013) of Lighting 101 is now available as a PDF for offline/paper viewing.

Thanks much to Michael, and please spread the word if you think it will be helpful to others in your circles.

Many thanks,
DH

The next book you'll want to buy.
 
If you are a photographer and you are a considerate person and therefore want to give your family a great <$25 holiday gift idea for yourself, you should tell them about this book. 

But honestly, you'd be nuts to wait until the end of the year to read it. So I'd just get it NOW.

I came across this article and it's an extremely interesting read if you're a teacher or you have kids. Or even if you're just insterested in the learning process.
Then I ended up watching this TED talk by Sugata Mitra http://www.ted.com/talks/sugata_mitra_build_a_school_in_the_cloud.html
In a way, this is how I grew up. My dad is an upholsterer, my mum has been chained to a sewing machine since she was 14. Neither of them has been to college or even high school. Yet in our home my brother and I have always had access to informations (mostly random books, encyclopedias, TV and a heavily used library card) and no parental control at all. 
We were encouraged to do our best, but never helped much in defining what this was supposed to be. My dad is a true believer in the "figure shit out" approach to life.
I remember asking my parents about stuff and them just answering "I don't know, have you tried looking it up?" and then excitedly reporting back to them my discoveries while they kept working on reupholstering a sofa, sewing some curtains or an ottoman cover.  
When I was shown an Internet connection in 1997 I was blown away: I could access all sorts of informations, instantly, for next to free. 
And don't get me wrong, I still spend an indecent amount of time abusing this privilege by watching at cat videos, but this is how I learnt how to take photos, how to introduce myself in japanese, how to change oil in my car or how to talk to strangers behind a monitor in a language that is not my own.

Stuff like this excites me immensely. I strongly believe that teaching what you know to others is great, but teaching others how to explore informations and try to come up with answers to questions you can't yourself answer to, so that they can surpass you and outgrow you, is so much bigger.

In my profession, spending the afternoon going through my Vogue Italia collection counts as work (preparing moodboards for the US seminars and workshops and gathering "inspiration") http://saralando.com/workshop
HEY THERE, STRANGER! I like to shoot people and chances are you like that too. For my first time teaching on your side of the pond, let me guide you through the process of stopping to steal someone's soul using a camera and rather use photography as a way to communicate with them and tell a ...

A couple of notes that might help you selecting your next photography workshop and make the best out of it

+Joel Locaylocay thanks! And hope your first workshop will be a great one :)

+Tim Grondstein I think women do take classes, it's just different ones: they might be not as super interested on the technical aspects of photography, but they usually attend classes that are more about storytelling and using photography as a way to explore meaning. I attended a Brooke Shaden workshop and I think there were 2 males in 15 people

Start planning for march: the GPP lineup is out! Watching footage from last year brings back memories from the most amazing photographic experience I ever had. Can't wait to be back in Dubai... except this week I'll be teaching instead of assisting Heisler (I tried to pitch for a workshop concept that sounded like "I teach people how to attend Heisler's class", but apparently that's not going to happen).
Not completely sure about what having +David Hobby as a "special guest" means, but I'm already thinking of switching to good old sync cables, in case he's around pranking people with pocket wizards. 

It's hard to describe my feelings towards this whole thing, as I probably lack the vocabulary. Is there a word expressing "a mix of elation and shitting bricks"?
As you can imagine, putting together the schedule of workshops and seminars takes a lot of time and effort – we're working around the clock to release the full schedule and open up bookings on or before December 20th. Stay tuned on our Twitter feed, Facebook page and website.

So weird, apparently I had turned off all e-mail notifications...  
Thanks, and see you in Dubai! Don't know if it's your first GPP, but it's an awesome place to be :)
