Review of 57 Photography Blogs

Over a month ago, I asked the FriendFeed community to share their favorite photography blogs.  There were over 95 responses and I went through each and every link provided.  Of those responses, there were some overlaps as well as some that I was already following.  These blogs covered a variety of different topics from daily photo sharing to being in the business of photography.  In the end, I added 57 of these blogs to Google Reader and started to take note of which ones I liked.

Here is a list of what I thought were the top 10 of the bunch (in no particular order):

Rob does a great job at touching on topics all over the scale.  Suggested reading: SEO Is Not Just For Wedding Photographers Anymore

A great place to get tips on gear, how-to, and pretty much anything you might be looking for.  Suggested reading: DIY portrait lighting on the cheap!

I tried to leave out the obviously bigger blogs that most people already know about like: TWIP, Thomas Hawk, Strobist, Carlos Miller, Ryan Brenizer, etc.

I hope this list provides you with some new material to chew on.  I will continue to review those blogs suggested in the original FriendFeed thread as well as others and plan on releasing another list (hopefully in the near future).  If you would like to place a blog on my radar, please let me know and why in the comments.

Till next time…
