Ready to drool??

June 25, 2010

My son has a Sesame Street Diner Toy that has grover cooking something up. In his very memorable voice blurts, “Does that not look delicious!?” That’s exactly what came to mind when I stumbled across this awesome food photography site!

I hate the name they chose for the site, it’s all about being edgy I guess, even in food photography, but the imagery is mouthwatering!  The premise behind the site is very simple. Just submit your best food photography and if it makes the editors drool enough, then they’ll post your image online. It’s gotta be good though because they only post one a day. But if you love food photography, food or natural light photography, which most of it is, then you’ll love this site!

Beware of viewing this site while hungry!


Cool Photo Blogs

Beautiful images found from the blogs on Cool Photo Blogs. Photo taken by chromasia.com/iblog/

Today’s site is called Cool Photo Blogs. I found this site a long time ago and I have to say it is an amazing site that showcases blogs from around the world.

I like to go there weekly and find new photo blogs. These sites showcase photographers work. They aren’t necessarily instructional or helpful in anyway. They are however gallery sites. They are true photo blogs. It is inspiring to see so much good photography from around the globe. Of course, there are great amounts of poor photography as well. But that is expected on  a site like this.

The premise of this site is to showcase photo blogs, but it is also a site that allows viewers to vote on the sites that they like and then in turn the site awards the winners. It is really a great place to find photographers that in my opinion I would never find otherwise.

If you have a photo blog, I would suggest checking it out and even submitting it to this site.


Amazing Eye Macros

March 5, 2010


Recently I stumbled across a blog entry about extreme close ups of bug eyes. Just like most photographers, I’ve seen macros of bugs before. However, this collection stood out to me for the quantity and quality of this grouping. The bugs are amazing and the detail and clarity of them are amazing.

What is so amazing about these photographs is not only that the color and details of these tiny insects are so intriguing. It is also the fact that every other aspect of these images are top notch. For example, composition, framing and overall presentation. I would think photographing such small creatures would make it even more difficult to get the entire image perfect.

These images were not all taken by the same photographer. They are a collection, however you can find the individual photographers responsible for each image below each photograph. Well worth checking out!

Face for Today by dalone

For our first site to suggest, I want to suggest one of the best photo sites I know of for inspiration. The photographs you’ll find on here will blow you away. Unless you have no interest in photography, you will be inspired.

The site is 1x.com and the images there are unbelieveable. The site is comprised of the best images of the members who are there. Submit your best images and if it’s good enough, it will be added to the ever growing gallery there. It’s a very clean and beautiful site. You might just blow a few hours looking around there.
