Macgirl Media Pick of the Week:

This month I'm focusing on photography.  One resource site I really like, is 

This site is a great resource for photographers at all levels.  David H. Wells is a professional photographer with loads of insight and knowledge of the business to share with aspiring photographers, students, and other pros.  I've picked up nuggets of helpful info on his blog, and his student galleries include some stunning work. 




Macgirl Media Pick of the Week: software training video tutorials.

Ok, so it's not a groud-breaking, cutting edge pick.  But over the years, I have come to love and rely on the good folks who contribute to Lynda.  The trainings are short, focused, and many of the creatives are actually pretty good instructors!  Having just spent 10 hours of my life going through a module on PhotoshopCS5, I feel like a re-charged Photoshop user.  The new features I thought I was taking advantage of already, now truly feel like magic at my fingertips.  So, if you haven't already, stop by the site and check it out.  If you're a designer, video editor, or any other creative type, you can benefit from the trainings on Lynda.  They offer great trainings on business programs, as well.

Macgirl Media Pick of the Week: This is Happening

This is Happening.  LCD Soundsystem.  Turn it up folks. 

This is the third and possibly best album by LCD, (LCD Soundsystem is the musical project of producer James Murphy.  He also founded DFA Records).  It's also billed as the "last", but I hope down the line that is rescinded. 

A mix of dance and punk sounds, LCD never fails to impress, and I can't stress how much I enjoy this album.  Great lyrics, great music, great everything. 

Just trust me and get it- now.  You can order a limited pack on the LCD website, including the double vinyl cut of the album.   

Or buy here on iTunes:  This Is Happening - LCD Soundsystem



Macgirl Media Pick of the Week: She and Him (again!)

Not to be confused with being a fan girl, i waited quite a bit to grab the new album, Volume Two, by She and Him (She & Him are Zooey Deschanel & M. Ward).  Always a fan of Zooey Deschanel (did you find the Tin Man miniseries as awesome as I did?), I really love her voice.  The last album (Volume One) was very enjoyable, and I looked forward to this new creation.  I hoped it would be a strong follow to the duo's first album. 

And it is.  It's a solid record.  The song In the Sun is easy and smooth, Don't Look Back, with its strong retro sound is a fave, and what a great rendition of Ridin' In My Car!

If you like She and Him, this will not disappoint.  You can grab it on iTunes here :Volume Two - She & Him.

Till next week!
