Free Online Resources

We started the "how did you learn photography" discussion thread so members can help out new photographers. Everyone learns differently and thus takes a different path. But there are many sites I keep visiting for good information or just for fun.

These websites don't contain a "must know" ( to use your equipment) type of information. They are more genre specific or just interesting stuff concerning photography.

I thought it would be nice to start a continuing learning online photography thread. If you could paste the link with the name of the site and a brief description that would be great :)

The Outdoor Photographer Magazine Blog

A interesting read on nature and landscape photography. I believe many of these posts are also featured in the magazine.

This is not a resource per se, but just about every area of photography is covered by this list of advanced photography tips.

The skinny on UV filters

Interesting. I always use a filter on my lenses. I've been doing it since I got my first SLR in 1976. So now I'm sat here looking at my collection of lenses. My older lenses have Hoya UV filters made in the Philippines. My newer (more expensive) lenses have Kenko Pro 1D Protectors. I bought the Kenko's off ebay. I believe they're the same product as the Hoya Pro 1D but they're less than half the price I would pay at Vistek. The Kenkos are a Japanese product.

Interesting read Melvin. Thanks smile

Its hard not to take it without a grain of salt considering its from a company that sells gear. This is something of an never ending debate where you seem to be on one side or the other. Optically I don't know if you need it. I do use them on most of my nicer lenses. Its hard to justify always buying a nice UV filter when it costs 1/4 to 1/2 the price of some of my used and cheaper lenses.
