I’ve been following a lot of photography blogs and websites for many years. The vast amount of information about photography on the Internet today is one of the main ways that I was able to learn more about digital photography and post-processing, and it just keeps getting better. I love my camera and photography, so I hope you can get something out of my favorite photography blogs!
Karen Hutton – blog.karenhutton.com
Karen is a hoot. She’s an excellent photographer with a huge personality. Her photos are bright, vibrant, and full of texture and color, and she even shares a lot of before-and-after images of her processing style.
Lightroomers – lightroomers.com
If you ask me who knows the most about Lightroom, Rob Sylvan would be the first person to pop into my head. Rob has been the Lightroom help-desk guru for KelbyOne for as long as I can recall. I worked as the Photoshop help-desk for three years alongside with Rob, and you have to really know the software inside-and-out in order to do that job well. I highly recommend Rob’s blog, Lightroomers, as one of your go-to sources for all things Lightroom.
Lightroom Killer Tips – lightroomkillertips.com
Since we’re on the topic of Lightroom, another really great source is Matt Kloskowski’s blog: Lightroom Killer Tips. Matt works as a “Photoshop Guy” for KelbyOne and also has a bunch of video tutorials and photography classes over on that site as well. It’s a great read, with a ton of good info about Lightroom. Definitely worth adding to your list.
Seth Godin – sethgodin.typepad.com
Seth Godin is not a photographer, but he is definitely a smart business guru. It’s probably the best blog on marketing tips, customer relations, and just how to get your mind thinking smartly when building your business.
David duChemin – davidduchemin.com
If you want a good creative kick-in-the-rear, then you NEED to read David’s blog. He is a world-traveler, an amazing photographer, and an even better writer. His articles tend more towards inspiration and eye-opening-thought-inducing posts, and he also elaborates on his articles and photos with gorgeous eBooks through his online store, Craft&Vision.
Really Right Stuff Blog – blog.reallyrightstuff.com
Aside from having awesome tripod gear, RRS also posts some beautiful photos and articles through their blog. I love seeing these posts pop up in my RSS feed; it’s always refreshing to view a gorgeous image with the story behind the photo. If you like learning how photographs were made, then this is a must-read.
Strobist – strobist.blogspot.com
Don’t let the simplicity of his blog design fool youDavid Hobby, the genius behind Strobist, is a master of off-camera-flash (OCF). As I recall, Strobist was one of the very first blogs I started following when I made the move to digital back in 2005. I learned a TON from his site, and it’s a wonderful read if you are wanting to learn more about OCF and lighting.
500px blog – iso.500px.com
500px has some of the best photos on the planet on their website. And, they have a really great blog that showcases some of the best work on their site, as well as features on photographers. They also have some good photo tips and post-processing tutorials as well.
Scott Kelby – scottkelby.com
If you don’t know who Scott Kelby is already, now is the time to find out! This guy has written dozens of books on photography and post-processing, and also heads up a pretty large conference twice a year called Photoshop World. He posts daily (Monday thru Friday), and always posts great content, news, as well as links to other sources.
