    Some of you might recall that we have an already started list of tutorials on the site listed here: http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/photography-beginners-forum/123160-tutorial-thread.html

    However that list has grown old, some of the camera brands have moved on and the tutorials are now out of date. Furthermore many people simply don't know about it, they overlook or simply miss out the tutorial section and thus never make full use of it to help reference the material to new members to the site or to each other.

    As such we are starting again with a fresh thread, fresh articles and fresh submissions from the membership. This is your chance to help really craft together a comprehensive list of guides, both advanced and basic, to help other photographers.

    These articles can be of any kind, from threads on the site through to review and articles written on external websites. Remember also that we don't just deal with digital photography here, film photography and video articles are both additional valid topics that we need helpful guides on.



    So this is your chance - you, the members, are going to help build this and this is your way to give back to the community and also have a chance to have some great articles to reference. We want your articles - post them up and link to them and I'll work at building them into a comprehensive resource of tutorials right here. Also note that you can also go through the linked tutorial thread above, many of the articles will still be valid and thus there is no problem listing them all over again.



    General FAQs:

    Lens FAQs:

    Camera FAQs:

    Lighting FAQs:

    PP or Post Processing FAQs:

    Equipment review sites, etc.

    Books/general reference websites:

    maybe I should unstick this so people notice it more ? - it does seem that sticky activates the invisibility cloak ;P

    Mleek - off the top of my head I think there is a business sticky for them in the business section; but considering how often they come up I wouldn't be opposed to adding some to this sticky as well as a good central resource for the site

    I've written a few tutorials aimed at beginners with an emphasis on travel photography, but of course the principles apply to everything:

    How to get sharp photos every time - Photography - 25 Days Off - an explanation of the factors that make an image sharp or not.

    Why understanding dynamic range is vital for travel photography - Photography - 25 Days Off - dynamic range for beginners.

    25 non-technical tips to improve your travel photography - Photography - 25 Days Off - mostly composition tips.

    9 ways to make your travel photography easier - Photography - 25 Days Off - this one is really about making photography a convenience rather than a burden.

    Hope this is helpful!

    One place that should not be overlooked is DeviantART. The tutorials that the members submit are mostly about editing, but a quick search of the topic you are looking for will, 99% of the time, yield results.

    Browsing Tutorials on deviantART

    This site also has a myriad of articles, tutorials and reviews: Digital Photography Tips and Tutorials

    And this site also has quite a few articles on a whole list of topics ranging from business talk to handling clientele to editing: Improve Photography

    I just got back into photography after having a point n shoot for the last 10 years. Papa gave me his old Yashica TL - Super. Really nice SLR for the age it is. Bout to get a T3i. Waiting on delivery. But being out of the field for so long, I forgot most of what I learned. I found this Training, tutorials & online classes by expert Ben Long just searching around for things on the T3i. He does some tutorials on other cameras as well. But man, this guy can teach. He is very articulate, and unlike most videos, he seems to know what he is talking about. Every photog who does a video does know what they are talking about, but the production value leaves me disinterested. He keeps my attention and makes everything seem very easy to pick up. And also, saw on another site, lots of people using the scene and auto modes on their cameras. I'll tell you after watching the Exposure and the one for my camera, he makes so you not need to use the auto functions. The exposure course has projects for you to do also as you watch it. So far, it's not something you just watch and throw away afterwards. I know it's paid, but figured you could throw it in the mix if yall felt like it.
