5.0 out of 5 stars If you like taking pictures . . . April 23, 2009
Then you will love this blog. The articles are short and specific, and filled with useful insights. Many of you may know Scott Bourne from TWIP and Twitter; you will learn here that he is more than just a guy who loves to give away camera gear -- he is a guy who is passionate about photography and has a lot to share. And Rick's is a household name in the professional photography community.

Some readers might complain that some of the articles (at least as the blog gets started) are kind of dated -- 2003? But that doesn't matter. The principles of dealing with light and composition that were true in 2003 are true today, and Scott and Rick really know what they are talking about.

There are not a lot of good photography blogs available on the Kindle, at least not with the top 100 or even 1000, which isn't surprising. But on a subjective basis, there's one that really stands out, and that's Scott Bourne's Photofocus. If you're into serious photography, his name may be familiar, as he's been writing about photography on his own site since the late '90s.

I've had issues with blogs that didn't update as often as the product description says, and that can be a disappointment or even irritating at times. Such is not the case with Photofocus, and let me present an example or two:

I had been following the rumors about the forthcoming Nikon D800, the new 36 MP FX-Format DSLR camera that had been rumored and speculated on by many. And the morning of 2/8/2012, I found the following on my Kindle upon turning it on:

The Nikon D800 - First Thoughts

"UPDATE: Within minutes of posting this - several of you claiming to be video experts say you disagree that the 36MP is good for video. So be it. I was simply reporting what I had been told. I personally don't have a dog in this hunt. As my post clearly expresses, I personally think 36mp is too many for a 35mm sensor. Your mileage may vary."

That was intriguing enough, but Scott went on to say:

"I'll start with the usual disclaimer. I am not one of the cool kids so I have never shot with a D800. This is not a review. Until I actually shoot the camera I won't have a firm opinion, but looking at the specs, I am very confused about this camera...

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST regular photography resource around. March 6, 2010
I listen to the Photofocus podcast and have subscribed to the kindle feed. This is the best resource that I know of for getting up to date information about the world of Photography from some of the best photographers out there. I just wish there were more blogs like this.
