    Also one blog per answer would be a good stipulation.

    Please make questions that ask for a list of answers (i.e. polls or list-of-X questions) community wiki. While there not exactly the type of questions this system was designed for, at the very least the author should make them community wiki. I converted this question. Jul 17 '10 at 3:47
  • @Robert I am not convinced that this should be community wiki. Jul 17 '10 at 5:34

    — it kind of has to be, as there's no single answer. Even answers which try to summarize the whole Internet can't be complete, and could be disagreed with by a reasonable person.

Read Ming Thein at http://blog.mingthein.com. He writes frequently and I love the pictures he includes with every blog post. Start by reading the "Technique" section at http://blog.mingthein.com/technique to begin with. Also, he answers questions on his blog quite quickly.


Photocritic photography school

In order to learn step by step enroll yourself as a student in the free photography classes conducted by Photocritic at school.photocritic.org


DPReview.com is a daily visit. Also known as Digital Photography Review, this is the standard of all photo gear review sites.

While not a photography learning site, we photographers spend much time, well, obsessing over cameras, lenses and other bits. Knowing your gear is an essential part of having a good shoot.

DPReview.com also has a very active forum where photography is discussed.
