Photography Podcasts

When I am not writing or reading about photography you can bet that I am listening to podcasts about photography. Podcasts are a great way to stay current on trends, equipment and sharpen your creative ideas. They are no substitute for taking photos mind you but when you find yourself unable to take photos they are a great alternative. Admittedly, there are some really BAD podcasts out there and I suggest steering clear of those. You will know soon after you start listening whether or not to invest your time. Just like anything else you have to take the good and throughout the bad. For instance; if they suggest that you make a certain setting change on your camera then just try it out in a neutral situation and change it back if you don't like it or think you have a better way of doing things. The list below is a collection of my favorite podcasts that I listen to regularly. They will give you a great starting point and can be found through iTunes. The other great thing about most podcasts is that they have blogs and web pages with "show notes” so that you can follow up on what you have heard.

1. The Digital Photo Experience
2. Nikonians (The Image Doctors)
3. Photofocus
4. This Week in Photography
5. D-Town TV (This is a great video podcast)
6. Pro Photo Show (weddings/portraits)
7. Camera Dojo
