New Home, Same Great Content

Over here at the New York Institute of Photography, we're proud to bring you high-quality photography content that supports the top-notch photo education we provide to students all over the world. And we wanted to let you know that we're still committed to producing great content, just not here. For the last 2.5 years, we've filled this blog with tips and tricks, polls and success stories, news and trends, and lots and lots of photos. But this will be this blog's final post.

Last week, we excitedly launched our new school website over at! With that comes a brand new photo articles section that you can check out here.

The new website gives us a chance to highlight more student work, showcase more of what we have to offer, and give students the chance to interact with one another in our (soon to launch) student forum. And the new articles section comes complete with several new writers, hundreds of amazing articles, and two easy ways to stay up to date with all your NYIP content needs. You can subscribe to our free monthly newsletter, or you can subscribe to our RSS feed. Either way, you'll never miss an article!

This blog will stay put, and everything here will live on. But this will be the final post.

We hope that you continue to follow NYIP, and read everything we put out on Thanks to all of our readers for your support!

Instagram and Social Media Food Photography Featured on Top Food Blog

With countless photos generated every day, we're deluged with images. I'm appreciative of anyone providing a way to filter and curate this amazing, never-stopping flood of photos and help deliver some sense to we who love good images. Let's take food photography, for instance. There are so many great food blogs and websites that feature excellent snaps of dishes that continually make my mouth water, but how delighted I was to find First We Feast, a more-than-food way to look at lifestyles.
Our goal is to cover not just the feasting, but everything that comes along with it. We see food as an illuminating lens into pop culture, music, travel, and more.

Check out First We Feast's Food Porn posts, featuring "The Week's Best Instagram and Social Media Photos," featuring food, of course, but also viewers windows into our culture. This is an excellent curated way to view food photography, out of all the images generated each week. Now if only we could have curated "best of" features for all different types of photography. We'll be on the lookout for such qualitative sites and will showcase them as we find them - and please share where you like to go online for photography inspiration!
