Adorama’s 100 Photography Tips in 100 Days

I had seen an announcement a few weeks back on about Adorama’s “100 in 100” 100 Photography Tips in 100 Days. But I just got a chance to look over the 54 tips that are posted as of today, and I’m very impressed.


There are many great tips from a number of talented photographers that cover everything from testing if your sensor is dusty, to what a high-key histogram looks like. I highly recommend checking it out, and I think all levels of photographers can benefit from many of the tips.

In some cases, like with Adorama’s AIRC, products mentioned will be linked to in’s catalog. You can even customize your Amazon Daily content by choosing from a long list of topics. Stories can then be accessed from your home page at when you log in, or by using an RSS news reader.

I haven’t tried it, but I have a compact Canon SD600 camera that is very similar, and I plan to test this the next time I film outdoors. I’m surprised at the quality of the sound that the small Canon cameras produce in video mode.
