Our blog post assignment this weekend was to research blogs in our field of study and basically summarize our findings on what we found, what we were expecting to find and what surprised us. My major is photography and I am particularly interested in fashion photography so I searched in fashion blogs, photography blogs and fashion photography blogs.
This first blog I found I was very interested in. It wasn’t about fashion photography but focused more on fashion and current trends which as a fashion photography it is important to keep up with trends and whats happening in the fashion world. There were of course lots of beautiful runway photographs and the writer of the blog has done work with top fashion designers so I think it was a very good find and I am very interested in following her postings.
This second blog was perfect and exactly the kind of photographs I want to be taking some day. One of my favorite things to do is look at photographs and fashion photographs in particular. The whole reason I began interest in fashion photography was fashion magazines. I would go through magazines and take out fashion ads and put them all over my wall. I still get really excited seeing new photographs and this blog had so many photoshoots to see. She also talked about her techniques which was something I was really looking for. Since I have never had money for equipment, I haven’t had the ability to play with lighting and different lenses so since I haven’t gotten into my major yet it was nice to be able to at least read about techniques used and see how they affect the photographs.
This last photography blog was a black and white photography blog which I one of my favorite styles of photography. I love black and white photography and this blog displayed such beautiful black and white photographs. I am somewhat picky about my black and white photography but I love the subjects used in this blog. Beautiful pictures and I really enjoy going through all the photographs.
I expected to find what I found. Photography being almost completely digital these days, I assumed there would be plenty of blogs to choose form in all different categories. I wasn’t expecting to be so excited about it though. Overall I really enjoyed my researched and it got me motivated to research more about whats going in the photography world.
