There are three feeds I read regularly…sometimes multiple times throughout the day.
I think that if you’re going to do something well, you have to immerse yourself in it; be-it fashion photography or basket-weaving.
To be a fashion photographer, not only do you need to know something of photography and lighting, but you also need to be well versed in business, photographic style trends, the technical aspects of digital photography and digital work-flow, and you need to know what’s in style, out of style, and what will be in style down the road. (Plus about a million other things!)
Enter the RSS feed to the rescue!
There are LOTS of great web-sites and weblogs out there and they each have something useful to offer (the good ones do at least). The problem has always been keeping up with all your favourite sites and checking them religiously to see if they have been updated. This usually results in skipping the sites that don’t get updated on a regular basis. Well, check-no-more my friends!
Through the use of an RSS feed reader, technically called a News Aggregator, (I use Microsoft Outlook 2007 at home and Viigo on my Blackberry), I’m able to have all my latest information sent directly to my Inbox…no searching and surfing required! Just click the bright orange Subscribe button on the site you’re interested in and that’s it, you’re subscribed! For more technical information, do a Google Search for RSS+Feed+Reader+Subscribe.
So, with that, here are my three must-read feeds:
