We're stuck right smack-dab in the middle of June and it's getting hot out there! Grab a Popsicle, crank up the a/c and take a look at our top blog posts from around the web for the week of June 13. 

PPA Advocacy Team D.C. Updates Parts 1 &
BE MORE ENGAGED: PPA was back on Capitol Hill fighting for a Small Claims Copyright option. Progress has accelerated! Check out the latest details here. 

SPEAK OUT: Have you joined our Action Team? If not, there's no time to waste. Watch this informative video and lend your voice to this historic movement. 

JOIN UP: PPA Member Randy Van Duinen, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP, with a plea for all to join the Grassroots Team. 

PASSION V. PAYCHECK: FStoppers has an intriguing op-ed about doing what you love for a living and the reality that some people may thrive with an unrelated day job, pursuing their dreams in their spare time. Is one better than the other? Several links and opinions offered in this thought-provoking read. 

INSIGHT: The Phoblographer with an article on New York-based photographer Aundre Larrow's tips and tricks that could change how you think about portrait photography.


WATCH OUT: If you were using the Facebook app to back up your phone's photos, you need to read this PopPhoto article and get informed. Beginning July 7, Facebook will no longer auto-save your phone photos unless you have their Moments app. 

KEEP CALM: Another great Fstoppers piece on the usefulness of nerves and doubt when creating art and presenting it to others. Everyone can relate. 

PRODUCTIVITY: OpenForum on what it takes to be a success (including drive and willingness to fail). Do you have these qualifications for your business to succeed? 

VISUALIZATION: In this video on PopPhoto, Von Wong speaks on the value of planning your photos before you go to take them. Could "pre-visualization" lead to breakthroughs in your style and skill? 

UPGRADED: Adobe has added a Guided Upright tool to Lightroom, which allows for greater control than the previously available automated Upright tool. PopPhoto has the details here. 

There you have 'em, our weekly blog post roundup! What photography blogs or podcasts do YOU follow? Post your favorites on theLoop or email them to us at OnlineContentCommittee @PPA.com.
