85 Great Photography Blogs, Galleries and Sites You Can’t Afford to Miss

librarianWOW! I love DIYP readers! A week ago I asked DIYP readers to introduce yourselves by sharing your photography with the rest of DIYP readers. A total of 85 (that’s almost triple my age) photographers and bloggers accepted the challenge and stepped up to share their blog, gallery, site or flickr stream.

I was happy to get familiar with 85 photography sites, blogs and galleries. During the course of the week, I have paid a visit to each of the sites and blogs, learning a bit about each of you. My RSS reader is now fully loaded with tons of new feeds.

The images found on the sites listed below took my breath more then once. I also found it very hard on many occasions to tell amateurs from pros. Man there are some darn fine amateurs out there. Below you will find a list of all the great places I visited and all the great people who makes DIYP so special.

If you are on this list, take a few minutes to visit one of the other sites. It is a great opportunity to exchange ideas, meet someone new and take advantage of the blogging medium.
