As someone who spends the majority of my life online I’m constantly reading, viewing and sometimes writing photography related articles. The subject can be very consuming and inspirational at the same time. Looking at beautiful images, incredible time lapses and fascinating behind the scenes videos is never boring. Occasionally I’ll stumble across an unknown source and investigate their archives for other interesting media, however most of the time I find it’s a dead end. That’s when I always find myself going back and checking out some of my favourite blogs as they never disappoint.
Story after story I find myself immersed in their media so I thought it would be a good idea to share some of the content creators I follow in what I’m calling The Top 10 Photography Blogs To Follow….so here goes…in no particular order.
If you’re after constant daily content nothing beats Petapixel. Their articles are well informed, accurate and in many cases inspirational as the team broadcasts the latest stories, rumours, news and interviews to hand. This is definitely a photography blog you want to subscribe to.
Matt from ISO1200 is what he says he is, a photographer and BTS search Guru. I’m not too sure how he does it but video after video keeps appearing on his magazine style page. A small amount of text is attributed and credited with each post and I always find it a pleasure to revisit and become lost in a world of behind the scenes.
I’m only including this little site due to our wonderful contributors. Rather than feature one person’s view here at F Stop Lounge we inspire to bring the photographers of the world together. All of our contributors use an array of different gear and have a different point of view and different ways of explaining things. Although we don’t publish every day we can guarantee there will be some fresh content published from different parts of the world.
Technically minded and passionate photographers, Tony and Chelsea certainly put on a show that turns heads. It’s not their modelling looks that does it, it’s their interesting approach to the level headed photographer who is eager to learn. The team explain the technical side of photography through simple visuals and clear explanations, so if you’re after learning content that will help you navigate your camera and expand your photography knowledge be sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel or even purchase one of their books.
Born from a pair of business minded wedding photographers, Fstoppers features talented writers content fit for the admiring photographer and videographer. With a slick in-built photography community which will handle all of your portfolio and interaction – Fstotppers is a cool place to hang. Dpreview communities stand no chance against fresh daily content and a strong ‘non-trolling’ community like this. Well recommend in my book.
I’ve always admired this site for its clean simple look which can be reflected in their sites title Photography: Think Simpler. Insightful real world gear reviews with stylish pictures to match, this site is a must visit. You’ll also find an abundance of well educated articles explaining photography and the tech wizardry behind it. I find I check this blog out weekly.
Stuck on Photoshop? Phlearn is one of the best, if not the best place on the internet to learn Photoshop. The team put together amazing simple to follow Photoshop tutorials which will open your mind up to the conceptual, retouching and photoshopping world. If you want to learn how to put freckles or grow someone’s beard using photoshop brushes, then this is the site for you.
Jay, Varina and the team over on Visual Wilderness form an integral part of the internet when it comes to educating the landscape photographers of the world. With weekly blogs, multiple ebooks, education packages and incredible videos you’ll be mesmerized by the amount of quality content from this team. Their community is constantly growing and recently they announced they had their 10,000th customer join, so they must be doing something right.
If you haven’t heard of Zack you haven’t lived. A larger than life, tell-it-how-it-is sort of guy, with a partner that rocks by his side. These two are unstoppable when it comes to wearing black, talking about film, life, art, music, lighting, portraits and their squirrel mascot. Their newly developed site has formed a massive following as the team write about the things in photography which are rarely said. They truly write to their name: More Signal. Less Noise.
Do you want to know about a particular mirrorless camera? MirrorLessons will have most likely reviewed it in some way via a real world review or featured video. Mathieu and Heather have formed a great partnership when it comes to standing in front of cameras (and behind them) to write about what people want to know when it comes to adding a camera to their collection. I find their style of writing to be fresh with an unbiased point of view, which is exactly what you want when you read a site like theirs. Also keep a weekly eye on guest posts and featured articles as this site develops to a new level.
