    Photography Links of Interest

    Ok, so we're going to start a new thread for posting links of interest to our ever growing group of photography buffs here on the MOA Photo forum. This will be a "sticky" so it always remains visible on the front page of the forum and anyone can post to the thread as they find links that would be pontifical to all of us. As the pages grow and links are included I will try to organize them in some sort of logical list by area of interest/data. Links can be how-to's, places the review cameras or gear, photo hosting web sites, etc. The one requirement is that they be places that have information rather than simply photographs, we have other threads for those.

    So lets start by posting a link to Sumgmug, a great photo hosting site that gives MOA members a discount, and allows for an unlimited number of photos and links to them. A great way to share your photos with us here and with friends and families. They also back up all the photos, provide for printing on a variety of formats and media. Like I said a really really useful site. I'm not sure what exactly the discount is but I will find out and let you all know, or Tom may be able to provide that information soon and can edit this post to include it.

    The Link to Sumgmug is

    Note: if you use the following code format you cam make the links appear as above "left bracket' url=http://put the link here with the "http://" preceding it, then the "right bracket" then the text you want to appear followed by the closing bracket /url bracket. easy right? (you can also just quote this to see how the link above was done.)

    notice how the first closing bracket "]" is AFTER the web link, then the text you want to appear goes next, followed by the closing [forward slash url] this is slightly different than the normal way of creating a link but gives you more control on how the text appears and you can make the title more descriptive.

    That way you can put whatever you want as the text string and by highlighting the text string between the brackets you can make the text colored or bolded for easier reading.

    See? Easy, right?

    Thats all for now....

    Two of my favorite sites:


    Great resource for the latest and greatest in digital compact cameras and DSLRs.


    Wonderful site for photographers to share their work and learn from one another. From the folks that brought you SmugMug.

    Rangefinger Mag is a great resource on many levels for pretty much every type of photographer...

    they each month have a section on a photoshop tool and how to properly use it to creat the desired effect... i still think you can get a really cheap or free subscription if you are an amature or educator (dont know for sure). they cover everything from digital to portrait... even have a annual wedding addition and senoir portrait editions to the fine arts to industrial editions...
    there are is a access to all the past editions months and more infor than you can shake many sticks while being chased by a Bigfoot for taking its photo..

    for example

    Little self promo i was in it in May of 04...

    For those that have iTunes or RSS feed capabilities ....(thru yahoo or many other mail/news sites) here's something some just turned me on to, looks kind of interesting they do a PodCast each week on photography subjects and provide a RSS feed.

    the link is This Week In Photography

    I've only checked out the basics, but I do now have iTunes since going with my new phone.

    After I get hooked up and listen to some of the podcasts I'll do a quick review.

    Interesting photo site

    I stumbled upon The Luminous Landscape through an unrelated search and found the composition essay very satisfying. I have no pretensions to being an artist, but I take a lot of gardening photos - for documentation. Some are nice, and there's an occasional inspiring scene, but mostly I'm trying to develop a discussion of gardening practice.

    Anyway, this essay was very reassuring for my purpose. Even though, I will strive to develop greater skill at composition.

    If you are using a DSLR you know about dust. With a background as a camera repairman, I help consumers clean their own cameras.

    So far I've not had to do more than use air with a hand blower. I know I'll not be that lucky forever.

    SD Cards Demystified

    Here is the best treatise I've found on the standards, codes, and capabilities of all the SD cards we see out there.

    If you are a fan of historic photography, you gotta check out this guy, Quinn Jacobson:

    For getting good pics to begin with, there is nothing, nothing, more important that learning the principles of composition, or what they used to call 'design.'
    Here's a start:
    But if you really want to learn about composition (and you should), the best book on the subject, IMHO, is Michael Freeman's The Photographer's Eye. Excellent book.

    Plan your shoots:

    Harold Davis, a Bay Area photog with lots of books, does great tuts, and workshops in the Bay Area, for very little $$

    And for post processing your digital captures:

    Russell Brown, the doctor of all things Adobe Photoshop has this to offer:

    George Jardine, Lightroom, Photoshop

    Tim Grey, Lightroom, Photoshop

    And you could spend years just learning from Adobe's own Julieanne Kost:
