This is a list of blogs that I like to read myself. Some of the writers I consider friends, some don’t know me at all, but I find myself going back to these sites over and over.
- Food Photo 101 – a collaboration with Nika Boyce to teach and learn better food photography. This is an interactive course of instruction. I call it collaborative, but Nika’s the talent behind Food Photo 101, and I’m just along for the ride. Materials for the class can be found at either of our sites (my Food Photo 101 page or Nika’s Food Photo 101 page). Accompanying the course are a Flickr group, Food Photo 101, and a forum. At the end of each week of lessons, a newsletter is available with that lesson and results from me and other people following the course at the Food Photo 101 Newsletter page.
- BBQ Guy’s BBQ Blog – the only barbecue blog with morealliteration than mine. Brian is a great guy with a lot ofbarbecue know-how.
- Men In Aprons – Adam doesn’t fit just in barbecue, but he’s startedcompeting, so I’m leaving him here!
