Photo Blogs & Portfolios
1st edition — by Patrick McNeil — Dec. 21, 2006
The Site Type
For this site type I am interested in sites that show photos through either a photo blog or a portfolio; and not necessarily photo galleries. In other words this is general people setting out to show high quality photos, not snapshots of their family reunion. A photo galleries topic is another article all together.
What stands out to me most here is that the style of presentation works with the style of photography. In many ways it isn't something I can quite put my finger on, but these sites fit the photos they present. One such example would be
fotoblog.michalkos.eu. The site is laid out in a fun, light hearted way; this fits many of the photographs perfectly. In particular it matches many of his macro photos that present topics that are fun and light hearted. Nothing heavy, depressing, or overly intense.
Photography is certainly not my niche, so if any of you reading this are thinking I missed the best photo blogs please send them in! I will be happy to update this with a more sets of samples.
