Masting photography is simple and hard at the same time. It’s simple because it mostly comes down to practice, hard work, and a thirst for knowledge, but it’s hard because not everyone has what it takes. I would liken it to any other art form, whether you use a paintbrush, or a musical instrument; it takes a lot of talent to become good.
Twitter is a very powerful tool for reaching thousands of people in an instant, but like most, before I started, I didn’t really get it. It’s hard to find quality people to follow at times so I’ve put together this little list of 20 people (in no particular order), who I like to follow. Twitter a great way of reaching someone personally and interacting with them with very little effort – it’s more than just a feed of updates about breakfast, it’s a great resource to replace your RSS feed and put all of your favourite people together.
Nikon made a bit of a mistake yesterday when they posted this on their fan page:
“A photographer is only as good as the equipment he uses, and a good lens is essential to taking good pictures! Do any of our facebook fans use any of the NIKKOR lenses? Which is your favorite and what types of situations do you use it for?”
We all know that what they said was wrong, but the important question is what makes it so wrong and why has it gotten us so riled up?
