While my blog posts have been a bit sparse due to school, Bug Girl has been busy combating a recent spate of shoddy reporting on Cochineal, its safety, and  use in food and other products, such as makeup. Here is a link to her post on the subject. Very interesting stuff!

Nature’s Best Photography has just re-launched their student publication – formerly Nature’s Best Photography for Kids. It is now online as Nature’s Best Photography Students.  As before, it is headed by the talented – and award winning – Gabby Salazar. And now they also have a blog in addition to their site.

This magazine and blog is a great source of tips, tricks, etc for the young/new photographer – check it out!
