digital-photography-school.com Here is an interesting digital photography site. Its offers free online digital photography classes, along with links to equipment, digital photography tips and photo galleries.
www.takegreatpictures.com This website was created by PMA (Photo Marketing Association) as a source of information to help you get more from your photos.

http://www.camerapedia.org Similar to Wikipedia, this is a user-generated content site for all things photographic. A fun site for finding information about older cameras and accessories.
