Appendix C. Resources

At no other time has there been more information available on the Internet for photographers and photographic and business education. With the vast amount of knowledge to be found on the Web, it can be frustrating sometimes to know where to begin or even where to look. On the Web, you'll find conflicting or contradictory information on every topic from alchemy to Zen meditation about "the right way" to do a certain thing.

My approach is to look for experts on the topic, and once I find someone who makes sense to me, I take that advice and run with it. If it works for me, then that becomes my method of working. Find what works best for you. While this is not an exhaustive list, I offer here a selection of my favorite resources to help you learn more about the digital camera, photographic lighting, photography, and the photography business in general.
