Today I am introducing a new feature right here on my blog. If you’re reading this, you probably also read other blogs. I do, too. I’m a regular at some and I happen upon others by following various links. Posts run the gamut from being brilliant masterpieces of the written word to short but helpful technique tricks to completely worthless wastes of internet space. I’ve decided that once a week, I’ll share with you five of my favorite recent blog posts published anywhere but here. I hope you enjoy them.
No Lesser An Art - Guy Tal
This wonderfully written piece by friend and fellow photographer Guy Tal is an interesting observation on the art, or not, of nature photography.
Here There Be Witches – Greg Russell
A haunting (no pun intended) black and white image of aspen trees and a reminder that we need not rely on brilliant yellow leaves when photographing aspen trees.
Use Jar Openers for Stuck Lens Filters – PetaPixel
If you’ve ever wrestled with a polarizing filter that is seemingly welded on to your lens, you’ll really appreciate this little tip.
Little Jewels – Michael Gordon
Michael shares an interesting observation about an exhibition he attended and some thoughts on how the size of a photographic print may impact the viewer.
Building the Best Website for Photography, Part 3, Social Media – Mike Cavaroc
Whether your photography website and/or blog are new or old, this article will give you some great ideas on how to generate more traffic (and more sales?) to your site using various social media tools.
And here’s a bonus link – just cuz:
Carl Donohue’s “Stuff to Click On, Oct. 2010″
Carl compiled a whole bunch of interesting-ness on his blog. Great news about photography, environmental issues, quotes and more. Lots of great stuff to prevent you from actually working.
So, there’s the stuff I found cool, neat, interesting or otherwise worth my time. If you found a blog post last week that you really dug please leave a link to it in the comments field below. One caveat: please don’t link to your own blog. This isn’t intended to be a self-promotion venue and if you try to use it as such, I’ll delete your comment faster than you can say “Oh no he dit’nt!”
