I've just started a new blog to document my photographic exploits. My goal is to post an image or two and explain what exactly I did to make the image and my rationale behind each decision. Right now, I only have two posts, but I'll be making more soon.

it's at http://learningphotog.blogspot.com

Let me know what you think!

Thanks. I tried to do a before and after in the most recent post. I'll try to continue and make that a trend.

Aaron-

The blog is very well done. However, working at the photography level you do, you have limited those in your audience who will participate.

Hi Sarah,

Thanks for the comments - can you explain what you mean? I'm not sure I understand.

I think that means if you take crappier pictures then more people will comment. :D

That is not what I was saying. What I was attempting to get across is: When you work in RAW and with very skilled lighting techniques, as you do so very excellently, you will, as a result, loose a certain percentage of your potential readers who aren't into those techniques. They have not yet grown to that level of photographic expertise.

Sarah, thanks for the comments. My goal is to show why I made the decisions I made at the time of the capture as well as to explain what I did in post processing in order to help people learn a bit (including myself). I would hope that by being slightly ahead of the curve, but certainly not at a professional level, it would make the site more accessible to newer photographers, not less.

I'll be putting up another posting in a day or so as soon as I get a chance to breathe after a good deal of time off of work over the holiday season.

A new post is up! Check it out, it's on how I made a photo called Weirs Beach Docks at Sunrise.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions.

I just put a new post about my trip to the Frankling Park Zoo where I took some shots of a lion and some lemurs...

I just put up part 2 of my trip to the zoo, talking about taking pictures of fast moving lemurs in a dark environment with a slow shutter speed and high ISO.

Please comment on the blog and let me know what you think!
