Technique Resources on the Web
#1
I thought it'd be nice to have a place to share photo tips and resources we find as we crawl around the web.

To start things off:

1) http://www.camerahobby.com/WeddingTOC.htm

2) http://www.shortcourses.com/index.htm
Specifically:
2b) http://www.shortcourses.com/using/index.htm
2c) http://www.shortcourses.com/equipment/index.htm


What have you found?

That's kinda what I was thinking - save you some work! How 'bout making it sticky so that it is easily found even if we haven't added to it in awhile!

I found to link to this nifty site at the TRUE BLUE DINKY-DI AUSSIE DIGITAL CAMERA FORUM:

http://www.photonhead.com/simcam

It's basically a camera simulator to explain the basic relationship between aperture and shutter speed, etc...

Found another one:

http://webphotoschool.com/Lesson_Library/Free_Lessons/

These are the free ones... presumably more advanced lessons are for sale...

EDIT: I suppose I should mention that the 'web photo school' site is apparently owned by Photoflex, a lighting manufacturer...

A treasure I agree!

I don't think I will be doing much else than check the links and read for a while...
Thanks Cailean, if I become a famous photographer one day I will tell the world you put me on the right track with this thread. Big Grin

Here's the best article I've ever read.

Article written by Brooks Jensen, editor of LensWork magazine:

The link should be good, but the forum has an "account suspended" message put up by their host. Not a positive sign.

For a very short time -- it's in the the May-June issue -- this article can be downloaded as a free PDF in the "current issue" #58. Go to http://www.lenswork.com/overviewcurrentissue.htm and follow the "Download a PDF preview of this issue" link.

It's worth the download if you can spare the 1,134k -- but I don't think this issue, #58, will be current for much longer.

I like the "twenty one ways to improve your artwork"

The original link is working again, but the PDF is nice to have anyway.

One of my favourite points:

19.) Don't photograph what is "photographable." Photograph what interests you, even if it is impossible to photograph. It is almost impossible to make a great photograph of something that doesn't interest you. [...] There are no boring subjects in the entire universe - there are plenty of boring photographs made by bored photographers. Become passionate about something and that passion will, with time and dedication, manifest itself in your images.

Cool stuff!

Here's a link to the "Ultimate Exposure Computer" page. It contains a table of typical lighting conditions and you can lookup what aperture/shutter/ISO combinations would be needed. Very useful for planning.

If you want to understand why a polarizer needs to be turned a certain way, or the differences between different polarizers (linear vs. circular), look here:
http://dpfwiw.com/polarizer.htm

A variety of unique, deep and interesting resources from an amazing artistic photographer:

I found an interesting site today – although they are really proud of their Facebook page, the articles tend to be snappy.
