Top 5: Blogs about Photography

In no particular order, these are my top 5 favorite blogs about photography. You’ll notice that the major review sites are missing. This is because once you have gear, there’s no point in reading those sites. It’s time to get out and shoot. The below sites focus on improving your skill and finding inspiration, something I can always use more of!

The Online Photographer covers everything from photography tips and techniques to great photographers to the latest news in the photography world. It’s updated every day, even on the weekends, and always seem to have great content.

Digital Photography School just got a facelift and is now three blogs in one: A shooting tips blog, an equipment blog, and a post production tips blog.  There are always great tutorials on this site, and a very active community to share tips and tricks with.

F/1.0 is the personal photography blog of Ed Zawadzki.  Here he talks about what he’s been up to with his photography, and also includes a number of tutorials, often showing what he did to get a particular shot, in camera and in post production.  I’ve learned alot from reading this site!

Shutter Sisters This site is a recent find for me and I just love it!  It features a number of woman photographers that share their experiences both behind the lens and in life in general.  This is the site I visit when I need inspiration for my photography, or when I’m just looking for a really good read.

3191 is a site I’ve posted about previously.  Two photographers, one in Portland, OR and the other in Portland, ME, each take one picture every weekday and post them to the blog side by side.  They don’t talk about the images beforehand, but sometimes the photos seem so connected to each other…  There’s not a lot of text here, in fact there’s no text other than the comments, but to me it’s a great place to look for inspiration, and a great slice of daily life.

Do you have a site you love?  If so, please let me know about it.

I just came across your site as I was looking at those who had already set up Atahualpa 3 wordpress theme and then I also noticed your site is about photography.

While my current site is on BlogSpot and do drop by.

I have been for a while trying to find a better blog theme that I can set up on my own site and of the 5 I have tried out I like this one the best.

Not being a programmer type it is always a little challenging to understand all the working.

If you don’t mind I may contact you in the future to ask a few questions about changing some theme elements

I enjoyed your writing style.

@Neils Atahualpa is a great theme and fairly easy to customize. Feel free to drop me a note with questions anytime.
