This blog has gone silent for about 6 months or so now. This is partially because I started running out of things to say about photos I post and started just posting links on Facebook to my Flickr albums, but mostly because I've been heads-down working on a project with a friend. Last week, we opened things up for the world and I'm finally able to talk about it here.
Our project (site) is called ShutterGuides and is a place for sharing photo guides. We got the idea when heading out on a trip to Yosemite to take photos. We couldn't really find ideas on locations to find photos anywhere, except maybe Flickr maps and Panoramio. Both of those were great at finding locations, but neither really helped us that much with knowing where to go or giving recommendations on time of day, seasons, etc.
After a lot of scouring the web for similar sites to help guide us to where to find photogenic scenes and finding nothing, we decided to create a place for it.
To catch the spirit of what we are trying to do, check out my (still incomplete) guide for one of my favorite parks in the Bay Area: Point Reyes National Seashore.
