WWW – Links, Blogs and Forums

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

Following a recent question I thought I’d put together a list of links with some of my favorite photo related web sites.
So here you go, hope you like :-

Shutterbug Dubai
A group of friends and I setting ourselves monthly challenges, the results and our critiques.

Local Photo forum, some good, some bad but local. A good source for finding out where to get hold of stuff out here.

David Hobby (aka Strobist)
Founder of the small flash movement, another great teacher with a very informative blog. Also there is a Strobist 101 and 102 series on the website for learning to light.

Joe McNally
The Guru of light. Has photo graphed for all the big boys but is also amazing at sharing his skills. Two amazing books also, “The moment it clicks” and “Hot Shoe diary’s”.

Chase Jarvis
Edge US based photographer, very good on the multimedia / social networking side, marketing himself. Recently shot the new SanDisk commercial (very cool) and posted a daily video diary about how it was done.

Zack Arias
Another stunning people photographer from the USA.

Canon Rumors
Good site with various rumors on new Canon (and some third party compatible) products, handy if your about to buy. Avoid that replaced the day you buy syndrome of consumer electronics.

Photoshop Disasters
Photoshop Oops from around the world. Learn by others mistakes and see how extreme some of the main stream model retouching is.

Leading Forum on underwater photography, some of the top UW photographers in the world float around here.

Big Picture
Blog from one of the photo editors of the Boston globe. Just truly amazing photos from around the world. Good source of varied inspiration.

A world class Post Processing expert, and one of the leaders in HDR David Nightingale.

Gulf Photo Plus
Local company who organizes annual photography symposium and courses, including McNally, Hobby etc..

Richard B.
