Try this one .... - Home

This one has several photog-authors going on there and they seem to have a lot of good info for those of us thinking about stepping into photography as a business.

I just quickly scanned the other posts here ...apologies if this is a duplication. But this one's worth a looksee.

Hi again,

I have recently found another youtube link which I thought I would share/post. The guy (Gavin) is "down to earth" and manages to put it all in a very easy to understand video's.

I personally have gained a lot of info from watching this type of media.

This isn't exactly what the OP asked, but i think it may be germaine.

I think one of the best "blogs" out there is to join a local Camera Club. I did that after buying my first serious DSLR in 2007, a K10D, just 3 years ago. We have monthly meetings, competitions, workshops, etc. We have 70 members in our club, and about 30 are really active. But one person in particular introduced me to shooting at a local playhouse for a community theatre. I'm now the theatre's "photography coordinator" and schedule other photographers to participate. I've come a long way in 3 years and wouldn't have been able to do that without joining a club.

Like others reading this thread, i've been adding good camera sites to my Favorites list, but don't discount the value of one to one real person contact.

I came across a really cool photo forum that has a lot of cool tutorials:

PhotoCamel - Your Friendly Photography Forum

I gather that is not so much a brand specific forum but rather a technique forum.

As unfashionable as this might sound, I get most of my ideas, inspiration and knowledge from 'Flickr Explore'

It does seem heretical I know, but a trawl through the pages of the best pic's of the last seven days throws up some some great photographers. And a shitload of dross!

But I'm someone who learns by looking at what I like and then figuring out how it was done. There's a lot of trial and error, but hey, we're shooting digital and not paying for film and processing.
Make the mistakes, look at them, figure them out, then don't do it again. ( I wish )

I first started with an SLR nearly 30 years ago, and because I have some learning difficulties I find that I can't read and absorb instructions very well. But I can learn in my own way and at my own speed.

Which is why I look at other peoples photographs, and if I like them - or I like the technique - I take the basic knowledge of photography that I have and then make the effort to perfect it in my own way.

I've read through many of the sites listed in the replies so far, and I have learned from them. But I learned more when I went back to them to figure out where I went wrong.
