What are some good photo blogs? March 4, 2002 4:35 PM   Subscribe

(Not too be a brown nose but) Matt's use of photographic images in a.wholelottanothing.org is beautiful (and central to the content it seems to me ?) Besides photographica.org, any other photocentric weblogs anyone would recommend? Thanks. PS Do you think there will there be more of these? Will soundtracks happen too?

everyone might have already seen this, but if not, check out Noah Grey's site (yes, the Greymatter guy.)

I really like Jack Saturn's site. Sparse yet lush in a yellowy kinda way. The photographs are not always as conventionaly beautiful as the others but they really tell a story and show his life that little bit better. Which is sort of what a blog is for.

But all of these are nice. I really want to set one of these up.

Lightningfield.com is also a very good placeholder for photoblogs. Also enjoy Frankieboots.

ps: As I was blogging frankieboots here, I realized that frankieboots has placed all kinds of keywords within the anchor tags in order to influence google. I guess its ok....but free nude pics?? Nonetheless, I like the site

Frankieboots seems to be an exercise in link-garnering (self-link). They (Mr./Ms. Boots?) also embed false referrer data in their browser so that it shows up in people's site statistics. Stats-obsessed bloggers (guilty) then backtrace the url and blog their "discovery". Porn sites also do this, but it's the only weblog that I know of that does.

Everyone is forgetting Photographica.org.

Though not strictly a photoblog, Heather is, nevertheless, an inspiring photo goddess.

Rory has a feature called Detail which groups large photos of geographic elements in a very cool way. Check out the sandscapes.

Redrick deLeon is one of my favorites. You have to dig a bit but, there is super cool stuff in there.

MetaFilter host Jason Levine has a great photo section on Queso News that shows what you can do with a Nikon Coolpix 995.

Consumptive.org always has interesting photo links in the weblog section. I like his work too, but that part of the site is more static than the log.

Although not strictly photos, I too often post images on my site.

Digital Photo Contest often has some amazing pics in their daily contest.

Also, I submit my own humble gallery; some may find merit in it.

Anybody remember a photography site that featured pictures the guy had taken around his city (in Oregon?) of scenes that he had really old photos of? He would take care to get the exact same perspective as the old photo. Then he'd put the photo pairs (the old, the matching new) in some flash thingie (?) and you could slide the bar back and forth, morphing from the old to the new scene. The awesome thing is, he would cut up the photos so that as you slide the handle, some elements of the photo would fade into view before others. For instance, one old photo was of a stoop, of a city building. A woman was sitting on a lower left step, head in hands, surrounded by her belongings; apparently she'd just been evicted. This picture was circa 1930s. Slide the bar, and it morphs into the same building, same steps, today -- and a couple of young girls are sitting on an upper right step, laughing. As you slide back and forth, the ghost of the 1930s woman lingers as the 2000 kids fade into view. It was unbelievably cool. If anyone has any idea how this could be done (Flash? Director? Another tool?) please email me privately, I've been thinking about doing this for pictures in my town.

I like lomoblog.com
Though not everyone can read portuguese, the lomos are very nice. And Ricardo is a very nice person to know.

My friend Eric Alba has great pix on his site.
