  • I know a lot of you have your own blogs, so these 5 reasons to smile when you get a negative blog comment might be helpful. Ya know, instead of reacting how I am in that photo above. Even if you don’t have your own blog, I think the article applies to comments on your photos, too. (link via @photonaturalist)
  • Photodoto recently posted about auto exposure bracketing – including what it is, why you should do it, and how.
  • One of the debates that you hear a lot in the photography world (and one I’ve struggled with internally sometimes, too) is whether or not editing a photo is “cheating”. Smash and Peas gives their input (check out the comments for even more insight into the debate)
  • Just got a DSLR? Here’s 5 affordable pieces of kit to up your game – I have 3 out of the 5 of these (and a fourth in the mail on the way to me right now) – and don’t know how I’d live without them!
  • Back to Smash and Peas, here’s a great refresher course on some rules of composition
  • You guys know I shoot in RAW, but sometimes RAW is not enough!

I’m still getting more comments with links to your sites, and loving it, so feel free to let me know what your site is if you haven’t yet. Here’s the latest batch:

  • notesonphotography.com is full of helpful articles and tips – like this guide to panning.
  • Lindley has not yet started an actual photoblog, but Jackson Family Adventures is still full of great daily-life stories – complete with photos, of course! Be sure to let me know when you get that photoblog up and running, Lindley!
  • Daisy’s blog is full of daily photos and photowalks, all of which are great, but my favorite is this cloudy sunrise photowalk – the snow, the clouds, the trees! Just beautiful!
  • In another not-exactly-a-photoblog link, we have Anna’s Blondie’s Cakes and Things blog – and the way she described it in her comment made me chuckle: “Right now it’s more of a foodie blog, but now that I’m on a diet (let’s see how long it lasts) it will definitely be more photography slanted since I’m always trying to improve on that.” I must admit, I got a bit hungry scrolling through some of the older entries – with great photos, too!
  • Lauren has both a photoblog (with photos like these Christmas photos of her family), and also a personal blog
  • I got inspired by day 4 – not only because I like the photo, but because it includes some reflections on the project and why she’s doing it.
  • No related posts.

  • I'd like to echo all the positive feedback here (and elsewhere!) about your blog. I bought my first dSLR in December, and your site has been so helpful and inspiring in the learning process :)

    I've decided to start a 334 day photo challenge starting tomorrow (Feb 1st) which I'm hoping to document on my blog (www.janetcetera.blogspot.com) Any comments & suggestions from anyone are always welcome!

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Okay--I finally did it! My first ever and very beginnerish photoblog is up and running. Since you suggested I let you know when I got it up, I thought I would. You may have been being nice, but here it is anyway! ;) www.joyshots.blogspot.com.
    Still loving your blog---I'm learning lots and getting so inspired!!

    Since you love getting these: tbrinkmanphotography.blogsp...

    I'm just getting into photography and really love your blog...actually it made me want to start my own even though it is No where near your level! Keep it up, I really enjoy reading all your posts.

    I love the link to the 5 affordable pieces. I need to get two off of that list for myself. I'm also new to shooting with RAW mode, but I have a big birthday bash coming up this Saturday for a friend and I think it might be the right time to experiment.

    I love your blog. Keep up the great work!

  • Thanks for the links! I have now changed my camera to take RAW + JPG instead of just RAW ;)
