Six cool sites with tips and tutorials for better photos

Brushing up on your photo-taking techniques.

Here are six great Web sites to help you utilise your digital camera better:

1. Good Tutorials: This site brings together some of the smartest, single-issue tutorials I've found. Some are nice and short, but with plenty of meat to chew on. For instance, Depth of field in Photography explains how different lenses impact the depth of field. If you're willing to take your camera off automatic and play with its manual settings, The Correct Exposure — a tutorial — Part 1: Shutter, Aperture and ISO will get you started.

2. Dave Johnson's Digital Focus: Every week, PC World (US)'s photography expert cranks out a newsletter full of handy and clever tips. BTW, you can also find useful ideas for other digital photography issues at the GoodGearGuides Digital Cameras Info Center.

3. The Digital Tool Shed has a stack of resources for digital photography, including image editors, photo viewers, slide shows, audio and video tools, and other links.

4. The One Dollar Steadycam: It's one of those why didn't I think of that tools. Watch this video and get the details from Dave Johnson.

5. PhotoSig is a great spot to post your images for critique — and a super site to learn from other photographers.

6. The message board forums on DPReview are organised by topic and camera brands. If you're buying a digital camera, you'll find the reviews, critiques, and no-nonsense advice refreshing.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
