Bill Wadman is the mastermind behind On Taking Pictures, a real-world view of the life of a working photographer. I was particularly taken with his Why I Shoot Raw article last month. The visual speaks volumes to the advantage of shooting in RAW mode to help eek-out a usable photo even when you least expect it.
If you're considering a career in photography, On Taking Pictures is a must-read.
