I’ve written about gear, books, and websites. Now it’s time to talk about bloggers. This post is all about photographers who take time out of their busy schedule to blog in order to help other people learn. Finding the most influential photographer bloggers is no easy task, there’s no real scale to measure influence, it’s all about the most popular blogs and most talented photographers and I think i’ve just about done it. The order is put together depending on how much I use a site, how easy it is to navigate and how good the content is, but if you think we’ve missed a site you love, let us know in a comment at the bottom.
DPS is one of the best known photography sites and an essential bookmark for both the newbie and the virtuoso. You have a whole section on photography tips and tutorials. Head for the articles under the ‘For Beginners’ section. Simple basics like exposure and aperture are well-explained. If you get that right, you can jump into the section on post-production. You can also opt to get photography tips from the site in your inbox daily. Then there is the well-frequented community behind DPS which itself is a focal point of photography action.
Now, you really don’t have to struggle in the darkroom to learn the ropes of how to take great photos. That is because the lessons of photography have gone online too. Ten blogs – that’s minuscule compared to the great photography blog sites out there. Just like the art of photography, there is a great variety in the nature of the photography blogs too.
