Sticky Traps Indeed!

Since we've already covered a lot of gadget review sites, here are some sites that are incredibly inspiring, and will hopefully have you running to grab your camera instead of your wallet.

For some people, taking photographs is an expensive hobby, for others, like me, it’s a way of life. When I contributed to our Timewaster’s Guide a while back, I tried to show as much restraint as possible by only submitting one seriously photography-dedicated site: www.dpreview.com.

So you can imagine my excitement when David Flynn of the Sydney Morning Herald decided to pick up where I left off by providing several additional serious photography sites. He was absolutely right. There are a lot of sticky traps for photographers out there and grateful to Mr. Flynn for opening the floodgates, I’d like to continue where he left off.

Since we’ve already covered a lot of gadget review sites, here are some sites that are incredibly inspiring, and will hopefully have you running to grab your camera instead of your wallet:

  • National Geographic is known for its world-class photography, and now their website not only features amazing photo galleries, but also blogs by some of their photographers while they are on assignment.
  • Deviant Art has been around forever and hosts all kinds of art forms, including photography.
  • Luminous Landscapes is especially great for its essay section.
  • This is a great place to learn about photography, with a large user-base and numerous tutorials and active forums.
  • An online partnership between the George Eastman House International Museum of Photography and Film and the International Center of Photography, the site offers joint online exhibitions.
  • Only the world’s best photographers are accepted to The Magnum Group and the photos on this site show why.
