I could sit at my computer and look at photos all day especially when it comes to great photo blogs. I love all sorts from big journalistic blogs with multiple contributors to blogs of independent studios like ours. I wrote a post in 2012 about the 6 best photography blogs on the Internet and since then I have discovered some others that are fantastic, so now I bring you the best photography blogs on the web – part two! Do your eyes and your soul a favor by clicking on these and bookmarking them!
Steve McCurry is simply put one of the most important photographers of all time. His photo “Afghan Girl” taken in a refugee camp in Pakistan in 1985 is the most recognized photo in National Geographic’s history. You have seen it. Meanwhile his work continues around the world and the photo essays he posts on his blog are amazing. Take this one for example entitled “Children of the Omo” which takes place in the Omo River Valley in Southwest Ethiopia.
The Photo Argus has something for everyone. Photos to enjoy of just about every category are here. You can also find plenty of photography resources and tips for beginners and pros alike on this site. Here is a really neat tutorial on night sky timelapse photography. This one gets pretty technical but the timelapse photography in the first few minutes of the video is really cool.
Here is another blog with plenty of emphasis on education and training for photographers which I like and recommend, but Janice also posts plenty of her photos which are largely macro, travel and landscape. Her macro photos of flowers are really nice and I also enjoyed this little photo essay of a trip to Oatman, AZ which is an old mining town.
This is the new photo blog launched by National Geographic. Who didn’t love looking at the photos in National Geographic growing up? This site is everything you would expect from them like this article about the Chernobyl disaster with truly haunting photos – some of them inside the plant.
Twisted Sifter is a unique site I came across recently which states as its objective “to educate, entertain, and inspire each and every day” with three new posts daily as well as a picture of the day. This “close encounter with a curious cheetah” is unbelievable!
I hope these sites entertain and inspire you, and if you have any to add please comment and let us know!
