Must Follow Photo Blogs?
Paul Hayes, Photographer, Photo Editor
Littleton | NH | USA | Posted: 3:17 PM on 08.18.11
->> I'm looking for interesting blogs (or whatever internet format is popular now) done by individual photographers.

I want to get a better sense of how other people approach their work, gain access, frame their shots, use lighting, see the world through their camera, etc. etc.

Any recommendations would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. - Paul

->> Not sure if what I'm doing with my blog would interest you, but it's called Eye On The Ball. I've been slacking lately, but with football upon us I will be kicking it into gear again. For now though you can access all entries from 2007 through the Brewers home opener this year. Mostly sports photography related, but it does touch on other things (such as lighting) here and there. Here is the link...

->> Besides my own blog at

http://blog.dhphotography.biz/

and website
http://www.dhphotography.biz

Sometimes I got into details on why I shot something, some of my updates are just sharing favorite images from a recent assignment, or my favorites from my last month. Hopefully some of you will visit and give me some feedback on what you think.

All the other blogs I visit were mentioned above.

Great thread, I'll have to check out some of these blogs.
