So, you’ve been bitten by the photo bug and you have pictures to share. What websites are best for the type of photography you’re into? With so many options to choose from, you can get easily confused. Consider this guide your source for all things photography community-related. Many of the websites listed here will be familiar to you but there may be a website or two that you weren’t even aware of.
Showcase your skills by first defining what type of photographer you are. For example, do you love taking pictures and receiving praise for your ultra-creative craft projects? If that sounds like you, you’ll love sites like Craftster, CraftGawker, and Pinterest.
If you’re more an outdoorsy nature lover, you’ll find the Nature Conservatory’s My.Nature.org
There are also places for fashionistas and experimental types to upload their photos. Let’s explore the most popular types of photography and the places where you can rub elbows with other photographers with similar interests.
You’re a fashion maven with a love for color, pattern, and texture. You know how to make things ‘pop’. You know what’s hot and what’s not and you communicate this knowledge through your photos.
Dare to Share: Try MyShutterSpace, FotoBlur, and the Fashion Spot.
You love everything about food and you can’t wait to share every delicious morsel with those around you. Your photos can be described as “mouth-watering”.
Dare to Share: Try YumSugar’s Savory Sights, Photograzing, and DishPal. There is also StumbleUpon and even Reddit. While those are not 100% photography they do respond well to quality photos. Tumblr and Weheartit are also lesser known photographer social medias. You can get lots of exposure by sharing there. I also found that Reddit is a great place to share photography as long as they come in meme format.
You’ve made it your mission to preserve your family’s history. You document every monumental and not-so-monumental event that occurs with your trusty camera. Your life behind the lens is small in comparison to your life as it plays out in pictures.
Happy Hipsters and Artistic Types
