Photography learning resources on Internet
One (and sometimes overlooked part) of developing yourself as a photographer is to study photography. "You can't learn to photograph by reading" is a half-truth, or at least understood wrongly quite often. While you need to photograph to learn to photograph, studying at least the basics is usually the best thing to do, especially at the beginning. This gives you strong foundation to build your skills. While books are a good source, Internet contains a wealth of knowledge for free.
Personally I started photography about a year ago from somewhat zero and I have found studying stuff from internet to be a great help, along with books and magazines. I've gathered here some websites that I've been using myself that I find beneficial or have found while trying to help other people and finding good links for them (I've been gathering these slowly during last year while learning myself). There are some basic guides and something a bit more advanced. Hope you can find something beneficial from h

I have been working so hard on learning Korean... I have been TRYING to utilize the keyboard provided on my Note II, but let me tell you.... creating syllables that SOUND correct is easy.. For a language with so few words and less grammar... AHH!! Making them make sense is like verbally explaining to someone that has never seen letters before that words like "to, two, and too" are the same, but different.. I'm on information overload... However SPEAKING Korean... is much, much easier. Putting together the alphabet is easy.. 

ANYWHO... I'm back to posting another small batch of photos from an adventure so check out the gallery.. 

P.S... 사랑해요  ;)

I wish to visit South Korea, Japan, China, Brazil, India, Canada, Spain... the Western and Eastern Coasts of the U.S.... and well anywhere life takes me.
