80 Photographers + 36 Networks = 257 Connections

We had a great response to the mini-project I announced last week on the topic of social networking and social photography. It’s always great to follow and connect with people of similar interests on the social networks, and as photographers we all have a lot in common. Personally, I’m far more included to accept contact with people on these networks if I know they’re a photographer — and from what I can tell, most of the links you guys provided were totally on-topic.

I was really amazed at how many different networks we’re a part of — some that I hadn’t even heard of before. All of the links left in the comments of the project post are listed below, separated by the network/website (most popular first) and listed in the order that they were received. If you’re part of these networks, check out these fellow photographers. And if you’re not a part of these networks, now is a good time to get started!

Enjoy the links folks, and go make some friends! (and let me know if I’ve messed up any of the links or left any out).

Congratulations! You made it all the way to the bottom!

Portrait Project at DIYPhotography.net (with prizes!)

Our friend, Udi, over at DIYPhotography.net is opening up a little photography project on the topic of portraits. This one is way cool because you can choose from three different sub-projects to participate in:

  1. Black & White Portrait
    This category calls for a black & white portrait of someone meaningful to you. I’ll be judging this portion of the project.
  2. Color Portrait
    Same as above, but the photo must be in color. Jim Talkington will be judging this portion of the project.
  3. Portrait Photography Tips
    The final portion of the project will be a gathering of portrait photography tips. So if you have some good portrait advice, write it down and enter it into the project! This portion will be judged by the project-master, Udi Tirosh.

Each of the three judges will choose a winner from their category, and the winners will receive a free copy of Portrait Professional 8 software! The project will be open for submissions until September 4th, but don’t wait until the deadline to enter!
