Written by Josh ToddWKPC MemberI donâ€™t know about all of you, but one 1-2 Hour meeting a month is just enough photography discussion for me. The club has the once-a-week lunch meetings, but many of you work during the day (school for me) and canâ€™t make it.To try and help solve this problem, Iâ€™m going to do a little mini-series of posts that talk about different online photography resources, where you can watch, listen to, and/or interact with other photographers. I assume that if youâ€™re reading this, you have internet, so that shouldnâ€™t be a problem. However, if youâ€™re on dial-up, most of these will be incredibly slow for you. Sorry.
Online Photography Site #3
This site, TWIPPhoto.com, (TWIP stands for This Week In Photography) is both a photography blog and a audio podcast. Every day, at least once a day, they have a new post about something related to photography. Sometimes its not helpful, sometimes its extremely valuable information. Same with their audio podcast. Its not as informative as the blog, but I enjoy listening to them regardless.Â The podcast can be streamed or downloaded off the site, or it can be downloaded off iTunes.
