A what??!! What’s a round-up. I do come from the country and know what a round-up is there but no I don’t think that’s right! I guess that’s why I’m here, I haven’t got a clue what this is or didn’t until now. I have to write a post that links to three other blogs.
Firstly on checking I follow 53 other blogs, a lot of whom (?which) I briefly catch sight of in the reader, but there are a few that I follow religiously and cant wait for a post. These blogs I wait expectantly like turning a page in a book. I will sometimes respond with a like or a comment. This is how you know I’m watching and reading and care.
Because you are so special I have chickened out in writing about just three of you. Its like having to choose who your favourite child is!. I have opted instead to round-up three other blogs that revolve around photography and I have found these three sites of most value in my quest for the “betterment of my photography”.
The first is a blog I follow called Digital Photo School. Any answer you need for any photographic question you have ever had is here on this blog. My question at the present time is Full-frame vs crop-frame and of course without fail, they have that covered with an interesting post.
Secondly another blog I follow is Karl Taylor Photography. He has some free videos on his site that really aid you in stepping up your photography. He explains things in plain English and gives you guides in all aspects of photography that will give you confidence to do more. I can also highly recommend his videos which do come at a cost but well worth the expenditure. If you purchase from his site it unlocks more videos. Very worthwhile. I highly recommend visiting his pages.
Thirdly, Andrew Gibson’s blog I have found quite valuable and informative as well for any level of photographer. His landscapes are breathtaking and inspiring. He also sells e-books on different subjects: Mastering Lightroom, Mastering Photography: A Beginners guide, Understanding Lenses and many more. You can pay less by bundling different packages. These books are invaluable and quite reasonably priced. I also wrote to Andrew at one stage about a wide angle lens I wanted to buy and he responded very quickly and was most helpful. For this I was very grateful and appreciated the time he took to write back to me.
I do hope you get the chance to have a look at the above blogs. You wont be disappointed. They each have helped and moulded me in some profound way with my photography and the least I can do is to give credit to them in this way.
I would be interested to hear how you find their blogs and if they have helped you as well. Good luck and happy snapping!
