Below are some of the best photography links from other sites that I came across this week. Enjoy!

Why shoot JPG to learn to shoot RAW – Ann Torrence – Before you commit yourself to shooting RAW format only, it’s important to understand why you would want to.  Ann does a good job of explaining the “why” and how she convinced herself to switch from JPEG to RAW.

Terms to Make a Happy Face Very Sad – Photo Attorney – Carolyn Wright points out that Facebook takes an irrevocable license to your uploaded photos for practically any commercial purpose.

Six Ways to Help a Laid-Off Photographer Get Started as a Freelancer – Blackstar Rising – John Harrington points out why and how experienced freelancers should help out the new folks on the block.

The weird science of stock photography – Slate Magazine -This article takes an interesting perspective on stock photography and how photographers and media companies look into the future a bit to predict demand.

Harassed at the TCW Group building in Los Angeles – All Narfed Up – It seems like this has been happening far too often lately.  Check it out for Bryan Villarin’s account of private security confronting him on a public sidewalk and telling him he can’t take a photograph of a building.

DC’s Union Station Ordered to Clarify Photo Policy – PDN Online – “Delegate Eleanor Holmes Norton, who represents the district, convened a hearing to examine complaints by photographers that Union Station has no consistent photo policy, and that security personnel arbitrarily prohibit them from taking pictures.”

If you want your photography-related site on Free Links Friday, just drop a comment or an email asking nicely.  Leave a link and a short description of what your site or particular post is about.  Spammers need not apply.
