If I had to pick one blog to recommend to photographers, it would be David Ziser's, not only is his blog an educational bonanza, he will also send you to so many other photography resources that it will be hard for you to keep up.
David does not dispense his wisdom with an eyedropper, he heaps it on you with a steam shovel. I doubt there is any other photography blogger more prolific that David Ziser, since last August he has posted well over 1,000 times!
And it's not just the quantity, it's also the quality, he packs in more useful information than anybody else.
How he does it I don't know, because he is a very busy photographer, and teaches seminars all over the country. I picture David sitting at his computer late at night, lit by the glow of his monitor and chugging Red Bulls to keep awake.
Here are just a few reasons to visit his blog:
1. His photography is inspirational, it will show you the possibilities and give you goals to shoot for.
2. It's educational, he not only shows you his work, but explains how his imagery was captured, a great learning experience.
3. David covers one subject that is very important but ignored by most, the business of photography, be sure to check out "Business Day Thursdays".
5. Want more? How 'bout Technique Tuesdays.
You can also get his 2 DVD set call the "Digital Wakeup call" (like I did), it's packed with 4 1/2 hours of great information, and $69 very well spent.
David will be teaching a one week course, "Digital Master Class" in July and September at his studio in Cincinnati. You can watch a slideshow from his 2007 Master Class here.
Whatever you are trying to achieve with your photography, simply to take better pictures for yourself, or to run a successful studio, David will help you do it better, smarter, and more efficiently.
