Remember the old song refrain (Beetles, I think) - "I get by with the help of my friends"! Well, in photography that is so true - most of us are more than willing to share tips, hints, and ideas. Here's a couple for today:
HDR information = http://www.stuckincustoms.com/
This link was passed on by a friend, and looks to be pretty comprehensive and understandable.
Learning Photoshop - well, one of the free ways to do it is to frequent http://www.planetphotoshop.com/ and take some of the free courses and sign up for their newsletter for daily tips.
Another way is to become a member of NAPP - at http://www.photoshopuser.com/ for $99/year. Not only do you get an incredible amount of information, you get decent discounts that can more than cover the cost of your membership.
Nikon users - http://www.nikonians.org/ is a members group with some pretty good training and gear discounts, plus possible connections when you travel.
Also, www.bythom.com is devoted to Nikon products and he does a great job of testing out gear and creating manuals that are worth buying. This tip was passed on to me by a guy sitting across from me on an airplane!!
Canon users - I haven't found a Canon members group although I am sure there is one out there.
Pictures to come with a later post!
