It seems like almost everyone has a digital camera these days that can take photographs of just about anything in a matter of seconds. Using digital photographs instead of the traditional film and paper print photos is cheap, there is no wasted paper to end up in the garbage and they take up almost no physical space at all!
Whether you’re a professional photographer or an amateur photography novice you’ll still like the convenience of digital photography. And what’s better than just taking lots of digital photos is the easy way you can display them to others. There are lots of different ways to share your photos, from digital picture frames to printing them out to storing them on your cell phone.
One of the most fun ways to share your photographs to others is with a photo blog. A blog is a website that allows an photographer to post instant updates onto World Wide Web about just about any topic imaginable. A photography blog can feature the digital photos you took on any given day or trip. You can include your written thoughts about your photos and you can inform people about why you took the images and what was happening when you took them.
To begin a photography blog you just need to find some free blogging software and pick a blog name. Most blogging sites are easy to get started with. You simply type your comments out in a post, upload your digital photos from your camera and the blogging software pretty much does the rest. When you are satisfied with a post you “publish” it and anyone on the internet can instantly view it!
With a photo web log you can not only allow others to see your photos but you can also allow visitors to write comments on your posts. If you allow comments on your posts then you can also discover what other people like and don’t like about your photos. Getting feedback from visitors to your blog is part of the fun of posting your photos online. If you are a nature photographer then you might use a website to show off your recent portfolio of work.
Remember not to worry about always composing a article that’s perfect. It’s your photography blog and you can post pictures of whatever you like. You can share photos of a a recent trip one day and then post photos of some trees in your front yard the next day. Just try to have fun with the ability to publish your electronic images so quickly with your own blog!
