Photography & Drupal Blog Recommendations

Since it’s a Friday, I figured I’d turn the tables around today and ask you for a couple of recommendations.

I intend to crowd-source this post and use your wisdom and mine to build this list so it can be a good reference point for anyone looking for such blogs.

Photography blog recommendations

I just recently proclaimed my interest in becoming an advanced amateur photographer with my wife’s gift Canon SX 10 IS.

To set things in perspective, I am not a professional photographer. I am just your average guy with a new camera interested in learning how he can get those shots that wow his friends and family and most importantly, his wife!

I do know how to operate the manual settings and have been experimenting in aperture priority, shutter priority & program mode and interested in learning more. I learn by example better and hence the reason for my interest in finding blogs in this area.

Here are a few blogs I am reading now

I hope you’ll help me fill my Google Reader folders. πŸ˜‰

Drupal blog recommendations

I also harbor a secret interest in the open source Content Management System (CMS) – Drupal. I have learnt so much about WordPress in the last 2 years I have been running this blog. Now, I know enough in WordPress to be dangerous to myself. So I am setting my sights on learning more about Drupal.

I did ask for recommendations on good Drupal blogs in Twitter where you can learn the inner workings of Drupal. And received a couple of good recommendations.

So, if you know of any good Drupal blogs, please share it with me in the comments.

WordPress has tons of developers in the community who share valuable information in their blogs. If you ever need a recommendation for good WordPress blogs, just ask me in the comments or via the contact form or you can use what I use – my custom WordPress search engine.

I update this custom Google search engine with the new sites (18 excellent WordPress sites so far) I come across so you can enjoy it too.

I hope to build this list here in to one of my Top Stuff lists (check the site footer for a few of the most popular ones). Thanks in advance for your time to share your knowledge with me and anyone else with the same interests here.

    I like that rule about taking a photo of your new camera when you get one. I hope you did that with your new Canon.

    I tried going to the website for the windows 7 hehe, but I don’t think I will be able to download it. I am guessing I needed to singup for some mailing service or something, because I don’t see any download options hehe.

    I am not much of an expert when it comes to drupal unfortunately. But I always do wonder myself the key differences between wordpress and drupal.

    hey K,
    Congrats on the sweet camera. She’s a beauty. When it comes to photography, I’m a point and shoot kind of guy, so no advice here. I know enough to admire good photographers though. It is art (and a bit of magic I think).
    As to Windows 7, I have heard that in Microsoft’s push to get it out (since Vista isn’t doing so well), that they have just “re-skinned” Vista and it’s not much new. I hope that isn’t the case since I still have XP and I’m waiting on 7.
    Congrats again on the new camera. Are you going to post some pics you’ve taken?

    I love drupal… is built on Drupal. It’s got a great architecture where it’s easy to over-ride the default behavior, and a huge set of user-contributed modules. Be sure to check out the taxonomy, views, and login-tobaggan modules. ( lots more, but those three were three of my favorites )

    Feel free to drop me a note if you get stuck on something.

    Drupal is pretty cool. My site runs on it. Drupal seems to be a little more flexible when it comes to dishing out your content. Its better as a more rounded platform than WordPress in my opinion. A buddy of mine got in on the Win 7 beta. I’m curious to see if there is any difference, now that they’ve begun to abandon Vista.

    The canon is sweet! I personally decided to go with Nikon but both brands have killer image quality.. Plus its more about knowing your settings anyways right? Ahh.. fstop, iso, aperature.. those are the things that really make a good photographer.. one of my tricks for the club is lowering the shutter down to 5-8 at f5.6 and standing real still for portraits.. usually it gives them a really saturated and colorful look!

    if you want plz check out some of my event photos and portraits

    Thanks bro!

    Looking for Drupal-based blogs? I’d like to think that mine is pretty good. As well, I created something of interest and use for you if you’re using Windows Live Photo Gallery and want to put your photos on a Drupal site.

    By using the Image module ( ) and my Imgblog module ( ) it’s possible to easily upload photos and even run a photoblog using the Drupal Publisher plugin for WLPG ( ). There’s still quite a bit of work for me to do with Imgblog and the plugin, but it works, and well enough to be usable. (I might need to work on Imgblog so it’ll work well with Drupal 6.x, however.)

    I never used Drupal platform before. Good luck with your trial.
