I started doing this blog now since August 3rd, of 2015. At first I was only doing 1 per week. Then I started collecting some of the best photos on the internet, and introduced the “Photos of the Week” concept, and ended up doing 2 blogs a week. Then I felt the need to fill in the gaps, and before you know it, we have evolved to 6 blogs a week.
Today, I probably have calmed down to only 4 or 5 per week. I keep finding new topics, new articles, and new photos to share. I have started taking a lot of my own photos, and have started writing a lot of my own blogs, instead of using other photographers articles. And even better, I have my own website now: 123photogo.com.
So, if I was to look back at the many different blogs I have done, there are some that have been really popular, some that have been really meaningful to photographers. Some that are popular because they are just cute too. In today’s blog, I want to highlight just 5 of the best, and most popular blogs I have ever done. How many have I got to choose from? Would you believe I have done over 350 blog posts now. So, if I pick the top 5, they have got to be really good. Let’s take a look now:

This is just one of the sample photos from one of my favorite: PHOTOS OF THE WEEK. This particular group of photos had some of the most entertaining of them all, and looking at the stats, this particular week had the second most hits of any of my posted blogs…. ever. It was an amazing group of photos. and you should check this link out again.

This article titled: “How to establish your Photographic style” was a great article written by Geordie Parkin. It was so well written that I think Fuji Film posted this article on their own website as well. But, it has such great information on how to establish your own style as a photographer…. how to be unique among photographers, so you are not like all the others out there. It has great information and certainly worth reading again.
THE ART OF BLACK AND WHITE:
Here is the link to this post:
I hit a nerve with a group of photographers, because there is several groups on Facebook, Twitter, and other social media groups who have been very serious about making black and white photography a real art. And it is true. I had done some research, and some of my favorite photography friends on Facebook were also doing some real good black and white photos as well. So, here is a special post on some real good photographers, who have chosen to keep this art alive and well.
Oh, and by the way, I did a part 2 of ” The art of Black and White Photography” and had a similar response to that one too.
Plan on seeing a Part 3 soon.
HOW TO DO GOOD PET PHOTOS / WILDLIFE PHOTOS:
Now, I had only been doing my blog about a month and a half, and boom, I went from having about 6 people view my first blog, to over 250 just on this one blog. Wow, was I excited! So, I found out after that, and from other blogs after, that people love their pets. I seemed to always have good results whenever I had posted something about pets or animals. This was a short one and a fun one.

HIGHLIGHTING PHOTOGRAPHERS: FEATURING “FIG SAUVAGE PHOTOGRAPHY”
I have been extremely lucky to meet, online, some real incredible photographers. I have loved their unique photography, and I reached out to them and wanted to do a kind of biographical story on their life and also showcase some of their own photography. I did my first one with “Fig Sauvage Photography”. She is a wonderful photographer and has continued to grow in her art as a photographer. Since this post, she has done her own gallery showings of her photos, and has had her photos published.
I feel honored to know her. She is a beautiful woman, and I am still looking forward to the time to meet her personally. I would love you all to take another look at her work at:
