Best Photog Resources

This page is a list of my favorite resources for digital photography and Photoshop Elements.  I hope they are useful to you as well!

Photography

  • The Digital Photography Book by Scott Kelby.  Awesome book full of practical advice, light on complicated theory.  He tells you exactly what to do to your camera to get a specific type of shot.  Volume 1 is a must-have.  Volume 2 is great also, but it’s for more advanced photographers.  Volume 3 talks a lot about Off Camera Lighting.

Equipment

Photo Processing Software

  • Photoshop Elements.  Obviously!  Adobe’s online help is more useful to me than the help files installed in the software.
  • Lightroom.  Works so well with Elements.  I use Lightroom to organize, rank and batch edit my photos.  The photos then go into Elements for detailed editing and special effects.
