Photo Blogs: Part I

No matter if your kit is brand new or has seen near 100,000 clicks – or if you’re shooting a P&S or the latest DSLR – the gear relies on the photographer – and the photographer relies on the photo community at large. 

That photo community is complex – and folks interact with it in a number of ways: books, magazines, workshops, local photo groups, web, friends at lunch, …

And then there are blogs.  My BloglinesRSS feed points to a number of photography blogs.  Over the next bit here – I thought I’d roll out a large chunk of my list.  Hopefully, you’ll find some in here that work for you.

And one of my criteria?  Work friendly – no questionable material.  The first time a photoblog on my list pops up with something that will raise eyebrows – it’s off the feed. 

If you’d like to add anything – please drop me a comment.

So, without further delay – here’s the first 25 – offered alphabetical order:

  1. 1001 Noisy Cameras: 1001NCs has all sorts of stuff here from reviews to lists to new gear rumors.  Good stuff.
  2. 1854: From The British Journal of Photography.
  3. A Little News:   Written by Gary Cosby, Jr of the Decatur Daily.  His blog tagline is “the blog for small town, but not small time photojournalism“.
  4. A Small Work A Day: a near daily image. 
  5. Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Killer Tips:  The title says it all.  By Matt Kloskowski from Photoshop User TV.
  6. Aviary Blog:  I subscribe to this blog to see what this online editing tool is up to.  I haven’t subscribed yet – but it looks cool.
  7. Best Seat in the House:OK – I’ve mentioned Rod before.  If you’re not reading his blog yet – check it out.
  8. The Big Picture: From the Boston Globe.  Great photography.
  9. Camera 47: (Hey, wait!  How did that sneak in here?)
  10. Camera Deals: A sub-site of 1001 Noisy Cameras
  11. Cheap Shots:A photo blog from the GT – the local paper.
  12. The Digital Camera Top Seller Charts: Another sub-site from 1001 Noisy Cameras
  13. Digital Photography School: Good tips.
  14. Digital Pro Talk: More tips.
  15. The Digital Trekker Blog: Travel / destination photography.
  16. DIY Photography
  17. Flying With Fish: Great insights for traveling photographers.  He also offers “Boot Camps” so that photogs can experience first hand a big shoot while traveling light and fast on a compressed schedule.  Of all the workshops available to photographers (that I know about) – this is the one I think I’d most enjoy. 
  18. Inside Lightroom: From O’Reilly press.
  19. Joe McNally’s Blog: Joe is the author of “The Moment it Clicks“.  I’ll hopefully get a full review of his book soon.  It’s one of the few (maybe the only?) book on photography I simply read cover-to-cover. 
  20. Lighting Mods 
  21. Michael Clark Photography: Action / lifestyle photography.  While you’re here – look through his quarterly newsletters. 
  22. The Mid’s Watch: This is Tim’s new blog.  It has some photos – and some writing.  Check it out.
  23. Nevada Wier Photography: More travel / adventure
  24. News: Digital Photography Review:  In depth reviews for cameras.
  25. PDNPulse: More good stuff.

And if you like this sort of thing – I’ll try to have more posted soon.
