Fine art photography blogs have changed the landscape for sharing and reviewing work. Blogs are more personal and idiosyncratic while attracting a wide audience, and doing so more quickly and inexpensively.  Photographers no longer have to wait for a review of a bricks-and-mortar exhibition by a very small group of print publications. The objective of this night is to inform photographers about fine art photography blogging:
  • how the blog came into being
  • how the blog differs from photography covered in a print edition (if there is one)
  • what bloggers like (or don’t) about blogging
  • advantages and disadvantages about blogging
  • who is the audience for the blog
  • how  work is chosen for the blog
  • how bloggers like (or don’t) to be contacted by photographers, agents or galleries
  • how blogging has impacted fine art photography (or not)
