I have put together some of the blogs and websites I’ve been following recently thinking they might be useful to other photographers out there. They include anything from general advice for a specific photo shoot to detailed technical analysis. I think there is something for everyone. Even if you’re not a photographer, you might still find some of them useful while photographing your paintings or sculptures since the issues such as color correction, lighting and white balance are also explained and mentioned on a few of these blogs. Some of you probably know these sites already, but I thought it’s still worth sharing for those of you who haven’t heard of them before.
These are some of the blogs that include tutorials and advice on photography;
If you’re into technical stuff, Dante Stella’s website is excellent. He writes on a lot of things from light meters, flashes, optics, to film, darkroom and scanning. And many many other things. This is a great source to keep as a reference and come back from time to time whenever you need help;
This is the blog of photojournalist Alex Garcia, who works for Chicago Tribune. Especially street photographers will this useful since he talks about things such as shooting strangers, candid portraits or how to get ready for shooting on the street;
This one is not updated anymore, but if you dig the archives, you’ll find some very informative posts;
A great photo project that anyone can join. All you need is an old photo of your family or friends and access to the same location where that photograph was taken. You can submit your photographs to the project. They just came out with the first book that consists of photographs submitted;
Dan, I am not really following forums but one I can give you is http://www.rangefinderforum.com It is a forum more oriented towards rangefinder users, but covers many issues on photography. Also thanks for the Carolyn Wright's website. I've never heard of her, would surely be useful in the future.
Joel, thanks for the links! I'll check them out now.
