Either new to photography or lost for inspiration? Hopefully this post will help and give you few good choices to start looking. I would like to share with you some of my favourite websites, books and some of my favourite flickr members photostreams.
The best places to start is the WEB. The world-wide web the mother of all resources and free to browse for everyone.
If you are new to photography you definitely want to check out the www.digital-photography-school.com You will find some great tutorials, tips, camera reviews etc. They also have Beginner section, talking about Exposure, iso, apeture, shutter speed, the rule of thirds and so much more.
