For my first post of “Wednesday’s wonderfully wise web gems” (it’s an addiction, I know…), take some time to stop over at Scott Sherman and Michael Stein’s Digital Photography Show. Self-admitted non-pros give great information on events in the industry, interview industry-leading experts and big wigs, as well as some pretty innovative contests with cool prizes. Their average podcast length ranges between 45 minutes to an hour and change.
Last, but not least is Fred Miranda’s online photo community – with so many forums and communities it can seem like an insurmountable task to find the right ones that gel with your interests. Fred’s site is well organized, and offers something for everyone whether you’re a Canonite, Nikonian, a gear hound, a color guru, or like to just look at pictures. Another added bonus is that Fred sells actions for improving your work flow efficiency, and these are a great resource for a minimal investment ($5-$20). Product reviews, articles, and a great sense of community round out the forums quite well. Granted, I may be partial as I have been a member there for almost three years now, but the thoughts and perspectives of that community are quite valuable.
