Photographers globally may well constitute the largest artist’s community in the world. I imagine there are more people wielding cameras as their brush and canvas than any other single art form. Even so, the art of nature photography in particular can be a rather solitary pursuit. Occasionally nature photography is done in groups, and there are popular spots where photographers tend to congregate. But more often than not, you’ll see a single tripod road or trail side with a photographer enjoying the quiet concentration. The web, by contrast, provides the perfect nexus for photographers to not only share their work, but connect with the vibrant and extensive community of fellow artists. Connecting through ideas, not just images, is an equally powerful way to grow. As such, I welcome your thoughts and questions in the discussion forums and comment sections following articles.
