Some of my Favorite Things

I was recently asked on Twitter what blogs I read, and so instead of limiting myself to 140 characters I thought I would type of a nice list of some of my daily travels (on the internet, that is). So, without further ado … here they are:

PhotoFocus: Ok, maybe I’m biased, but  before I started submitting to this site (when it was called “TWIP”) this was still my favorite photography blog out there. It’s a very nice, basic blog with lots and lots of relevant info relating to photography. I never go a day without reading from this website. :)

Joe McNally: Joe is one of my favorite current photographers. I’m slowly diving into the world of creative off-camera speedlights, and he is one of my main inspirations behind it. His blog is a fun, and usually humorous, look at some of his recent projects.

Strobist: Ok, this site is almost a no-brainer so if you’ve never been there before, go now! The blog is all about photographic lighting, with an emphasis on small flashes. If that’s your thing then read this blog.

Planet Photoshop: I love using Photoshop, and I can’t stop wanting learning new things. This site is authored by Corey Barker, my favorite Photoshop-guru who works for NAPP. He doesn’t just show you the “normal” stuff … he has all sorts of cool tricks up his sleeve to show you how to do things in Photoshop you never thought possible. Lots of great video tutorials here as well.

Photoshop Insider: This is Scott Kelby’s blog, and always has good info relating to Photoshop and photography. What I like best about it is that it’s always updated with the latest-and-greatest info & news on what’s happening out there in the photography world.

And, last but not least, here’s some more sites I read daily that definitely deserve a mention:

Leggnet’s Digital Capture – Photography by Rich Legg
What the Duck – Photography-related comic strip by Aaron Johnson
Photo Attorney – Copyright & legal information by Carolyn E. Wright, an attorney who works for photographers
