I know there are loads of sites with tips and tricks lots of stuff that you can read to get better at photography but what about videos?? Do you know of any sites that have videos? anyone interesting on youtube? I'm not too big on reading because it's always really hard for me to focus and pay attention when i'm reading so i thought i'd try some videos. I have found a few and have really liked me and have picked up some things from watching them. earlier today on youtube i found this interesting guy Bert Stephani and he has a series of videos called "Confessions of a Photographer" they are pretty short videos but they give you some really good ideas. I want to find more stuff like this.. i know there are lot of videos on youtube.. but what else is out there? and what do you recommend?

You Suck At Photoshop is pretty amusing. And you may even learn a few Photoshop tricks while at it! I don't really watch a lot of videos regarding photography- or any other subject for that matter. So I can't really recommend anything. I'd try searching YouTube though. You can search for general terms like "photography" or more specific things you want to learn about like "rule of thirds tutorial" or "bokeh tutorial" or whatever you want to learn more about! It might also be a good idea to search for a video about your specific camera model. You might learn about some useful features you didn't know your camera had!

Actually, there's a web site, I believe it's lynda dot com. The only thing is - it's not for free. As far as I understand it's a set of videos to help you out with very specific thing (computer orientated). Now, if you have some money to spend, I think that wouldn't be such a bad idea ;)

I bet if you check youtube you can find what you are looking for. Just everything is there, if not everything. Marsha
