Photo Tips

I'm a big fan of Photography Talk and they use a lot of videos from Adorama I particularly like Mark Wallace and his Digital Photography One on One segments. He does a great job of breaking down things in a way that I can understand. Below I've started the list of his videos from youtube from Episode 0 to the point I've watched. Plus some of the others I've randomly watched. As I have time to watch more I'll list them here. Enjoy!
