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...

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:

Signing up for his mailing list gets you more.

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