As my interest in taking photos ramps up I’ve noticed more websites about photography. Or is it just that I’m more focused on it so am noticing more websites about it. It’s like when you want to buy a new car, you all of a sudden notice everything about the cars on the road that you didn’t notice previously.
One site that’s come into my radar recently is Shutter Sisters. It is a new site and their philosophy begins by saying:
Shutter Sisters is committed to honoring and celebrating the beauty that women behind cameras can capture. We embrace the belief that we are all creative equals, eager to share with one another our work; our art. It is in that sharing that we thrive and grow not only in our creativity but in all facets of our lives.
Visit their site and see what they’ve got to offer. There’s also an associated Flickr group.
Another blog I’ve started reading recently is Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. She is a self-confessed amateur photographer but she’s done really well with a good camera, lots of practise and lots of experimenting. She offers layman, or laywoman, advice about digital SLR cameras versus point and shoot, different types of lenses for the SLR cameras and offers advice on post processing in Photoshop.
Looking at these sites, and I’m sure there’s lots more, just gives me loads more incentive to take more photos and one day get my own DSLR camera with a plethora of lenses.
