Whatever it is you need inspiration for, Pinterest is an awesome place to look. From creative lunch ideas to a thousand and one ways to use a mason jar, you’ll find it on Pinterest. So, it goes without saying that if you’re looking for creative, unique, advanced, or beginner photography tips and ideas, Pinterest is a great place to go.
This Pinterest account’s description sums it up well, “Exposure Guide is a great resource for photographers of all skill levels. Easy to understand tips and digital photography techniques are offered in many subjects from portraits to sports photography.” There are currently 19 boards you can follow – all of which are photography-related – including a series of “top 10” boards that provide followers with a set of excellent tips, camera apps, image editing software, and more.
I had the honour of interviewing Trey Ratcliff last year. This extremely talented travel photographer has some mad post-processing skills and creates the most amazing HDR photos you’ll ever see. His Pinterest account has a massive following of over 4.1 million, and for good reason; Trey currently has 40 boards you can follow which offer a huge dose of inspiration. His images take you around the world, from China, to Iceland, to England, Korea, Hawaii …
Digital Photography School’s Pinterest account has an impressive 115 boards you can follow, all of which are photography-related. Just to name a few of the boards which you can learn from:
- DSLR Basics
- Lighting Gear
- Posing Basics
- Post Processing
DP School has it all. Seriously, whatever it is you’re looking for, I’d be surprised if you couldn’t find it here.
I actually came across this Pinterest user while doing my research for this roundup. Photo Josh currently has 21 boards and a healthy 9,418 followers. His pins are on everything from essential photography accessories to creative photography ideas. Definitely worth the follow.
Thanks to Photo Josh and his article entitled Top 20 Photography Pinterest Boards, I discovered photographer/author Klaus Herrmann. His Pinterest account currently has 16 boards, several of which are about HRD photography and colour-themed boards. He also has an open board called Best of Pinterest Photographers where anyone can join the board to pin their own best photos.
What? You didn’t think I would write about photography-related Pinterest accounts without a little shameless promotion, did you? The Posterjack.ca Pinterest account currently has 24 boards, offering an abundance of inspiration and photo ideas. Better still, following this account will let you in on some great photo contests Posterjack runs, like the popular 31 Day Photo Challenge where users can submit themed photos daily to be entered to win gift certificates for Posterjack.ca. Awesome!
