Blog of the Week: Smash and Peas
Relish the Staples
There might be one reason why this blog is oddly called ‘Smash and Peas’. Smash (mashed potatoes) and peas are a part of the basic, staple diet for the Americans. This blog provides the ‘staples’ of photography—the basics, easy tips and techniques, advice about the right gear—no matter what kind of photographer you are or what genre you are into!
The entries posted in this ‘one-stop shop’ blog are written in an easy-to-understand, straightforward manner. Their most recent entry explains why a team of enthusiasts that run the blog recommend some of the latest cameras, lenses and accessories available in the market today. Other recommended browses here are the ten thumbnails on the right-hand side of the home page. Each of these will guide you through a variety of fun topics—tiltand- shift photography, extreme action and photo manipulation to name a few—and each feature a range of inspiring photographs.
