Other than a few workshops here and there I am primarily a self-taught photographer – meaning I read a fair amount of books about photography and spend a ridiculous amount of time on the internet reading/bookmarking quality resources such as articles, tutorials and tips & tricks. To save you from clicking through the junk that’s out there I thought I’d act as a filter to what I consider worth your time if you are serious about improving your photography.
B&H Event Space – B&H Photo provides one of the best, free general photography video tutorials I’ve seen. Topics range from post-processing (Lightroom/Photoshop), wedding photography to travel photography. The videos can run up to 2 hours long, which means there is a lot of meat to it.
Digital Photography School – DPS is perfect for those with a short attention span. It offers a plethora of articles of any type of photography you can imagine in a bite-sized, easy to understand format. The website is particularly useful for beginners and is also helpful for post processing tutorials.
Digital Camera World – this is somewhat similar to DPS in that it offers easy to understand photography basics. What I particularly enjoy are their Professional Photographer to the Rescue series that offers tips and tricks used by the pros themselves on the field. The two that I’d like to highlight are of food & travel.
It’s not necessary for me to list any additional sources other than Jenn Cuisine. Jenn Oliver is the writer behind Jenn Cuisine, a blog that focuses on gluten free cooking. Through her blog she seems to have developed a love & knack for food photography and has taken the time to compile a seemingly endless list of resources dedicated to it. I have not come across a list as exhaustive with worthwhile tutorials, including her own.
