We’ve all heard of this blog owned by the crafty sister duo, Elsie and Emma. But did you know that they have tons of posts about photography in their archives? These are especially helpful if you are a blogger who takes lifestyle, portrait, and food photos. They also have a photography basics e-course if you want the whole package.

You know when you’re browsing the internet trying to learn something and everything you find is either very shallow or a complete repost from another site? This site is the POLAR OPPOSITE of that. I’m talking 100% valuable original content from beginning to end. You will have to pay to join the forums, but once you are a member you can get personalized feedback from extremely talented professional photographers from around the globe. And no, you do not have to be a mom. If you don’t want to join the forums, you can read the tutorials and articles on their blog for free. The ClickinMoms University has online courses available for purchase as well as mini-classes called breakouts. Finally, they publish a big glossy print magazine called Click six times a year. Can you tell that I love this website?

This is a classic photography resource. If you’re looking to buy a DSLR, they review equipment to help you buy the best camera for your needs. There’s also a whole section for post production because you know you’re gonna need some of that. And if you want to buy a book on photography, check out one of their twenty-two photography ebooks! Whoa!

I’ve told you my top three favourite photography resources so now it’s time for you to weigh in! What is your favourite photography website or book? What should I cover next Thursday? 

Till next time,
