Great sites for the photographer

 15-34-15-symp-sangImage via WikipediaIf you are serious about your photography then you need to be regularly checking out what's happening in the world of photography, interacting with other photographers and generally always seeking to learn new skills and techniques. There are several ways you can do this but a virtually free way of doing this is to join online communities and regularly 'subscribe' to several websites.


Some of my personal favourites are:


DSLR focused sites:

User galleries and communities:
  • www.redbubble.com - you can start your own group(s), have your own gallery and sell products with your own images.
  • www.zazzle.com - not just photography but you can make money from selling products using your images 
  • www.photo.net - galleries, forum and learning resources
  • www.dphotojournal.com - members' galleries, forum, tips and reviews
Tutorials and online learning resources:
These are just a selection of the many sites out there. Of course, the major manufacturers also have learning resources on their sites so they are definitely worth checking out. You will no doubt come across other sites and if you think they are worth sharing then please do so via the comments for this post.
