As far as I can tell, one of the main duties of the blogger is to waste time online filtering through a bunch of garbage so that your readers dont have to. I have not had a lot of access to internet the past few months in the field, but now that I do, I plan on doing a bit more of this. I am starting out with some resources so you can find some other great photography blogs and photojournalism blogs on the internet.
This first section I am posting is a list of 20 blogs which I enjoy to varying degrees. Some of these are specifically photojournalism blogs, some are great resources for training and information and others are shooters who are using the internet to get their work out, much like myself but in some really different ways.
