  • To be perfectly honest, I sometimes find twitter overwhelming – and I don’t follow nearly as many people as I know some of you do – but if you’re looking for even more photographers to follow, check out this list of 50+ photographers on twitter you should follow. And, if course, if you’re not following me and want to (to be hoenst, though, I rarely say much…), I’m at @ifflesphoto.
  • Sunsets rank right up there on my list of favorite photography subjects – both for capturing and viewing. If you feel the same, check out this list of 52 dazzling examples of sunset photography.
  • Another subject I love are trees. While they might not be as obvious of a subject as sunsets, they still make amazing subjects. Here are some tips for incorporating trees into your photos.

  • And, since the new year will be starting in less than a month (eek!), it’s also that time of year to start thinking about what photography projects I’ll take on next year. Here’s a a list to help you start brainstorming your project ideas.

  • I never would have guessed that Ronan Palliser used a lens cap to get this night-time shot. It’s an interesting solution I never would have thought of, and if I had, wouldn’t have thought it would work that well.
