More and more people start to realize that with the recent progress of digital photography and increasing number of chip appliances like phone cameras, key ring cameras, really good point and shoot cameras, etc there should be some training available for all those people. Thousands if not millions of below average images are getting dumped into the web each day, and yours truly is taking part in all that. :)
So there is this story at Slashdot, which links to an article that has a number of links to other places – all fast and convenient for educating yourself about the basics of photography. Comments to this Slashdot submission are also useful (for links like this and this), so take a minute and flip through them.
