You won’t be surprised to hear that there’s a ton of useful information on the internet about photography. Here’s some sites that I’ve found especially informative or entertaining. If you want to identify other sites that may be helpful, feel free to add a comment below.
ScottKelby.com: You’ll see Scott Kelby mentioned a number of times in On Photography. Here’s his website, definitely take the time visit. Kelby is someone who has taken his dream and made it a fun and fulfilling career: you can’t help but share in his joy for photography. He favors Nikon cameras — if you use Nikon yourself, that’s another reason to take a look.
dpreview.com: Digital Photography Review is a general clearinghouse for information about digital photography. There’s news about products and detailed reviews of cameras and lenses. The forums are particularly helpful: there is a large community of readers who exchange opinions and information. Go to the forums page and find the forum for your camera. You can follow the discussion threads without registering (it’s called lurking), but to post your own comment or question you’ll need to register. This is a great place to go if you have a question about a feature of, or use for, your camera. Search to see if your question has already been answered, or start a new discussion thread if the information you need isn’t available. (One suggestion — make your “Subject” line informative. Don’t just write Help!, be specific about what you’re looking for and you’re more likely to get one or more reply posts. You’ll figure out a style for your posts after you’ve examined a few discussion threads.)
