Five Photography Websites I Rely On
Written by: Tiffany Joyce
I find myself going back to the same handful of photography-oriented websites on a daily basis. I thought it would be great to share them with you all, and perhaps get some good tips from readers on the photography websites that you rely upon.
In no particular order:
B&H Photo. This is my go-to source, not only to purchase camera equipment, but also to get helpful reviews on what I should buy for specific applications. And, of course, I make full use of the wish list. Not that I’ll ever be able to afford one of these, but hey, that’s what wishing is for, right?
Photo.net. This is a great website community of photographers featuring a network of forums, professional trade articles, product commentary, and photo galleries. There’s also a healthy archive of tutorials and educational articles. Beware, you’ll end up spending a few hours over there at LEAST.
PopPhoto.com. This is Popular Photography Magazine’s on-line resource. It’s a great compliment to the magazine, which I subscribe to and recommend. Their reviews of cameras and related products are right on the money and can be trusted to deliver performance results honestly and accurately.
ScottKelby.com. Scott Kelby continues his quest for total world domination. Okay, no, not really. He is, in my opinion, an invaluable resource for photographers. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know who he is and what he’s published. If not, he’s going to be the subject of one of my upcoming entries. This website in particular is his personal blog, which I find both entertaining and informative. He also spearheads Layers Magazine, Photoshop User magazine and is the president of NAPP (the National Association of Photoshop Professionals). If that wasn’t enough, he also leads Kelby Training, a subscription-based photography training site.
Lens Modern. This site features galleries of unique and evocative images from top photographers around the world. I enjoy garnering inspiration as I click through the photographs. To quote the website, “Lens Modern is a new and unique online photographic handling agency. It was conceived and created by a group of the world’s top photographers as the only market place appropriate for their photographic images and award-winning work.”
There you are, my top five. Join us in the comments and tell us about the photography websites that you favor!
This one, of course, being among them.
