Welcome back to the second in the series of my favourite photography blogs. The next site I’d like to recommend is from another friend of mine (and PhotographyBB), Mike Frye. PhotoCapM – Thoughts on Photographic Art is on my list as one of the most positive blog experiences I could recommend. Mike does some wonderful writing on subjects pertaining to photography, his experiences with photography, and photographic art. I always find the articles to be intelligent AND upbeat, which is the perfect recipe for presenting any material in my opinion. In addition to Mike’s articles on worthy photographic news stories, this blog also contains many helpful tips that Mike has learned throughout his journey as a photographer. The beginners will learn a lot from these helpful tips, while the pros will gain great insight from Mike’s articles on photography as it relates to art.
In addition to all of this, Mike is a social networking guru who uses his power for good. He maintains a highly active Flickr, RedBubble, Facebook, and Twitter account, always connecting with positive, like-minded photo enthusiasts. They say that this world is what you make of it, and Mike truly makes the best of what social networking was born to be. On the PhotoCapM blog Mike runs a unique series entitled, “Flickrite in the Spotlight” where one Flickr user is featured through their work, their contributions to photography, interview, and art. This is one of the reasons I always visit the blog; to learn more about what our peers are doing, and how they are doing it. We’re all growing together on this journey and it’s great to see the recognition of inspiring work from other fellow enthusiasts. Another excellent feature of the PhotoCapM Blog is the Photo Assignments and Contests category, where you’ll find helpful articles on participating in photo assignments/contests as well as links to some great contests open to all levels of photographers.
If you haven’t seen the common theme yet, it’s about to get more clear. The PhotoCapM Blog is all about giving back either through recognition, learning, and also charity. Mike’s Heart Art is an opportunity to embrace our love for photography and give back to those in need. You can find more details here on how you can help.
You’ll also want to stay tuned to the January Issue of the PhotographyBB Online Magazine where Mike has been kind enough to contribute an article for us. Be sure to check out the PhotoCapM Blog and add this one to your RSS feeds folks! If you would like to connect with a Mike, you can connect with him via any of the following links:
