Photography 101: Resources for Newbies


I mentioned in Special Announcements that Shutterstock accepted two of my photos!! Still, still blown away. They also rejected some saying the shots are poorly lit, out of focus or not composed properly. This started me on a new adventure--researching photography tips and Photoshop fixes. Ideally, I want to take a class, but I don't have the money right now. To Google.

Here are some articles that helped me:

Since I'm attending NYU, I have access to Lynda.com. For those who don't know:
"lynda.com is a leading online learning company that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve personal and professional goals. Through individual, corporate, academic and government subscriptions, members have access to the lynda.com video library of engaging, top-quality courses taught by recognized industry experts." 
I've been going through some photography courses. They are amazing. Lydna.com isn't free. If you can afford it, I highly recommend it. They do offer a 10-day free trial.

I also subscribed to:
YouTube Channel: Phlearn Photoshop and Photography Tutorials
Digital Photography School

The Shutterstock Blog

I haven't looked into it yet, but there are probably photography meetups.
