Back again with another blog round-up. It is clear that these are not going to be weekly, but frequently enough to cover interesting topics.
Speaking of interesting topics, my goal is to cover articles that are good for the novice, amateur and pro photographer alike. I get a fair amount of traffic from novices that are interested in learning more, so I certainly plan to share information for all experience levels.
On with the show…er…some what random list:
20 Questions – If you want to get to know your client, 20 questions might help. If you want to get prepared for a shoot, 20 questions to yourself will definitely help. Just try not to ask them out loud. People may think you are strange, like talking about yourself in the third person. David Hobby, of Strobist, is back again with another great post about preparing for a photography shoot. Make sure to check out the list and his discussion.
Keep it to yourself – Sometimes it is best not to share your work. Not because it sucks, but because the work is not for your target market. I do lots of shoots that I do not share, and that is a good thing. Consider seriously what Zack Arias has to share. Zack details some very good reasons not to share. There are certainly some good lessons.
The eye candy – I have some good inspiration for you. Check out some of Eric Ryan Anderson’s recent blog posts. He has a few recent posts containing his recent work. All of it is very good. Something to keep in mind…Eric is an assistant, but is just now breaking out on his own. My favorite – Matt.
PhotoShelter, part 1 – One of my favorite blogs is brought to us by the fine people at PhotoShelter. As you may know by now, I am a PhotoShelter customer and have been for a long time. Want to know what makes a good photo website? Check out this post.
Looking for a book? – Let me be more specific. Are you looking for a great photo book. A custom one made by hand just for you? Maybe have a look at AdoramaPix. They are not huge in the printing industry, but trust me, that is a good thing. Their handmade books are printed on real photo paper and are bound to lay completely flat when open. I highly recommend their work.
That about covers it for this round. As always, feel free to send me photography related news from around the web, especially if it is related to Cleveland wedding photography, or Cleveland photography in general. I always like to cover local events too.
